Morrissey has laid into Prime Minister David Cameron in the wake of the riots that took place in Tottenham over the weekend.

According to the Evening Standard, the singer spoke from the stage at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Sunday (August 7) and hit out at Cameron about his comments over the riots on the previous evening. He asked: "Has David Cameron ever been to Tottenham? I don't think so."

The singer also recalled his delight at seeing the Prince Of Wales' car after besieged during last year's student protests in London.

He said:

In what our slanted media called the student riots, Charles and 'Camel' came face to face with the British public, without the protection of Buckingham Palace or the police. And what happened to them, I couldn't stop laughing about for weeks - no, months.



Morrissey is still searching for a new record label to release his new studio album. Despite the follow-up to 2009's 'Years Of Refusal' being complete and ready to release, Morrissey has said he is still struggling to find a label to put it out for him. The singer has also indicated that he will release his autobiography in December 2012.
