Morrissey: Olympic Spirit 'Like Nazi Germany' - Yahoo! News UK

Singer Morrissey has slammed the coverage of the London 2012 Olympics for its "blustering jingoism" - and likened the "foul patriotism" to the Germany of the Nazis.
In a statement posted on True To You - an online Morrissey fanzine - the former frontman of The Smiths outlined his distaste for the media attention given to the royal family and the sense of British spirit.
He goes on to say that the "spirit of 1939 Germany now pervades throughout media-brand Britain", as a result of the Olympics coverage.
The statement reads: "I am unable to watch the Olympics due to the blustering jingoism that drenches the event. Has England ever been quite so foul with patriotism?

What an utter twonk ......

What was the tosspot hoping for? We're hosting and doing very well at the Olympics so are enjoying it. I've yet to hear any talk of exterminating the Jews or living space unless Seb Coe's saving it for the closing ceremony. Cunt of the worst kind who needs a good dose of vCJD the Argie bumming, wank since the 80s old cunt.

People use the word, "Nazi" like it's a bad thing. But did you ever hear of a woman who fantasized about being tied down and raped by a Liberal?:twisted:

I think Morrisey has a point. I read that one of the British lads that won Gymnastics Bronze was being given free lamb and chicken by a butcher in Nottingham to build him up

Not only is the Olympics run by jackbooted stormtroopers it seems they are letting non-vegans in too. Outrageous

He's just an Arse! Him and Sean Penn! Has Morrisey even looked at his own Country? The US to me resembles more of the Nazi style flag bearing compared to the UK.

throughout media-brand Britain
I agree with that comment / description. I firmly believe there are a few misguided athletes who simply see atheletic prowess as a stepping-stone to "celebrity".
Since when have "athletes" truly dedicated to their sport required a PR team that drip-feeds stories as soon as they fall off the front page again? Athlete's parents getting in on the act and feeding the media also...
Young Adlington has aspirations to appear on celebrity dance or whatever it is.
I think there are a few in it for the wrong reasons. "Meedya" has a lot to answer for. It's poisoning people into thinking "celebrity" can be achieved through little effort. The truth is...in today's chav Britain..it can...but it does not last long.

The media and various PR teams have over-hyped some athletes. They may not perform to expectations. They will then be drawn to the "celebrity" shite. A few appearances on a few reality shows and they will then be discarded. They will, by then though have fuck all to fall back on.
I predict, in 15 years time we may well see a couple of today's over-hyped hopefuls flogging turkey basters on an obscure satellite channel.

Right...I'm off to pop some kid's football...

When ever morrissey is lauded as some sort of messiah I remember seeing him in a quite posh book shop off portland st in Manchester a while back. Looking intently at a book in one hand. With the other he put his hand in his pants round the back, took them out and then snuffed his fingers. Quite a feat as he had a long coat on at the time. You can imaging the struggle but fair play to the lad he kept on reading.

Having read the link, it seems that Morrison (who is a media-attention-seeking has been) is becoming the new David Icke.

He has a point about it all being London London London- everyone paid for it, london gets it.

But he is a twat

Did him and Marr not shaft the other two members of the band out of all the royalties and now they would not piss on him even if he was on fire?

Thats a nice bit of socialist principles for you.

Good for Morrissey speaking his mind and questioning and provoking, that is our prerogative as Individuals... flag waving is naff if it is meant to 'be us', and he's right about dancing to the beat of the media and brands - it's precisely what this govt wants to get itself out of jail.

...personally not a big fan of flag-waving but 30s' Germany connection is hysterical; but I do think we should kick back at hyperbranding, packaging of what should be a human event. Thought opening ceremony offered up a non-big-ourselves-up arts/ironic based message which is more 'us' than the Union Flag actually. We should never do mass feel-good, it's cheap.

Morrisy is a nob'ed and not much of a singer either, but the Organisers left themselves wide open when it was announced that Uncle Adolf and his nutters, we're the original thought behind the Torch relay. Very little has been made of the torch back in the Athenian days by the organisers, which could have gone a long way to undermining the Nazi link to the torch.
