Morrissey Quizzed By FBI
Singer says US and UK governments feared he was a threat
Morrissey was questioned by the FBI and British intelligence after speaking out against Bush and Blair, the singer has revealed.
Mozza, a famous critic of the war in Iraq, has previously branded the US President a terrorist. He said: The FBI and the Special Branch have investigated me and Ive been interviewed and taped and so forth. They were trying to determine if I was a threat to the government, and similarly in England. But it didnt take them very long to realise that Im not.
I dont belong to any political groups, he continued, I dont really say anything unless Im asked directly and I dont 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 cant really speak your mind and if you do youre investigated.
