Morrissey says he didn’t need to celebrate David Cameron resigning as Prime Minister

He also commented on US politics, calling Bernie Sanders the country's only hope for positive change

Morrissey has said he didn’t need to celebrate when David Cameron resigned as Prime Minister of the UK.

The politician stepped down after the country voted to leave the EU and has since been replaced by new Conservative leader Theresa May.

Speaking News.com.au, the musician said: “​I didn’t need to celebrate because most British Prime Ministers are forgotten three days after they leave office.

“The only exception is Tony Blair whom the British people are eager to see tried for crimes against humanity. Politically, there is now no such thing in England as the good old days.”

He also discussed US politics, calling Bernie Sanders the country’s “only chance for positive change”.

“It’s a mistake to ever expect American politics to make sense. They are obviously rigged. People will now vote for Thump [Trump] in order to stop Clinton, or they will vote for Clinton to stop Thump, which means that people only vote in order to stop someone who is bad, but they do not vote for someone because they are good,” he said.


“Bernie Sanders was America’s only chance for positive change, but he was dismissed by the media and although his success story was extraordinary he was not what the establishment wanted because he is not a billionaire and he is not a warmonger.

“It is CNN, really, who decide upon the final nominees. For example, each time Bernie won in the primaries the CNN headline would be BAD NIGHT FOR HILLARY, yet when Clinton won, the headline would not mention Bernie, therefore it is planted in everyone’s mind that American politics belongs to Clinton and not to Sanders.”

Morrissey also confirmed reports of him running for Mayor of London with the Animal Welfare Party were true, saying he “could see the pointlessness of stepping in”.

He added: “The Mayor was eventually elected on very few votes, and of course he eats Halal butchered beings, and talks so quickly that people can’t understand him… and that suits the British media perfectly.”
