MORRISSEY FINDS NO LOVE WITH THE FBI
Due to his criticism of British and American governments, Morrissey was recently "interviewed" by the FBI and British intelligence. The singer is an outspoken opponent to the War in Iraq and has called Bush a "terrorist."
"They were trying to determine if I was a threat to the government, and similarly in England. But it didn't take them very long to realise that I'm not.
"I don't belong to any political groups, I don't really say anything unless I'm asked directly and I don't even demonstrate in public. I always assume that so-called authoritarian figures just assume that pop/rock music is slightly insane and an untouchable platform for the working classes to stand up and say something noticeable.
"My view is that neither England or America are democratic societies. You can't really speak your mind and if you do you're investigated."
