Morrissey has said that he “despises” racism and fascism in an open letter supporting far-right political party For Britain.
Now, in a new blog post, Morrissey has voiced his support for For Britain, the far-right party founded by Anne Marie Waters. Waters formed the party following her departure from UKIP after Nigel Farage dubbed the activist and her supporters “Nazis and racists”.
“I despise racism,” Morrissey writes in his post, which takes its title ‘I’ve Been Dreaming Of A Time When / the English / are sick to death of Labour and Tories’ from the singer’s ‘Irish Blood, English Heart’ lyric.
“I despise fascism,” he adds, continuing: “I would do anything for my Muslim friends, and I know they would do anything for me.”
“In view of this, there is only one British political party that can safeguard our security. That party is For Britain,” he goes on to say.
“Please give them a chance. Listen to them. Do not be influenced by the tyrannies of the MSM who will tell you that For Britain are racist or fascist – please believe me, they are the very opposite!!! Please do not close your mind. For Britain will keep British society together. Violence is not the way forward.”
In his post, Morrissey describes Labour as “hopelessly naive,” Prime Minister Theresa May as having “turned Britain into a international target” with her policies and the “Loony Left” as “concerned only with victim culture”.
He accuses the press of making “inflammatory and unjust comments against any new party that threatens the same old bloody pointless two-party system”.
“Please give For Britain a chance,” Morrissey appeals again. “They will bring an end to the modern Westminster mania for self-destruction. For Britain is the bulldog breed that will never surrender. Both Labour and Conservatives have already sold you down the river into righteous oblivion.”
“This is my last political strike,” Moz adds. “No wish to upset anyone! But the time has come to fight, and Labour and the Conservatives have their backs to the sea. Are you capable of change?”

Last year, Morrissey spoke out to clarify controversial claims he made about Donald Trump and Kevin Spacey. A German newspaper then released the full audio of the original interview. The singer had claimed that his comments were taken out of context, denying that ever “sympathised with paedophilia and rape”.
Morrissey released his latest album ‘Low In High School’ last year.
