Somebody should scan this article/interview, I would really like to read it. About racism... I think it's just paranoia, he's not a racist, he never was, people who read the interview say race wasn't even discussed. A nasty title on the cover of a magazine won't make him a racist.

And what about the credits? "Interview - Tim Jonze; Words - NME".

Hmm, who is worse? Morrissey or the NME? This is possibly the greater mystery. I disagree with Morrissey but I still understand his opinion. Hopefully he won't be adopted by the BNP as a kind of poster boy. Conor McNicholas is a righteous dickhead who does not help matters at all 'look at me! look how liberal and good I am! I hate the BNP sooo much!' Well duh, so does everyone, big deal. They seem to require a whipping boy who symbolises the kind of jaded conservatism it's easy to lay in to in order to look cool, Morrissey serves this purpose as far as they are concerned.

They seem to think the issue is 'Anyone one that uses the word 'Traditional' or 'Immigration' is a 'Racist''
But England doesn't exist does it? It just gets in the way of us all sitting round for tea together. Silly NME, Silly Morrissey.

PS. How quaint could Stretford in the 1970s possibly have been? He is lamenting something that never exisited. Typical ex-pat, Romanticist artist. Honestly

He meanwhile has announced he wants to take NME to court for it.

I sincerely hope he did not really say those things. If he has, I will be extremely disappointed in him. These words are exactly the same sort of shit (sorry for the word) that has ruined the politics in my native Belgium and made society crawl for the far right-wing parties. The words really disgust me, I cannot find a different word for it. I really hope he did not say those things for real, and that NME just took things out of context. The fact that Moz starts a lawsuit over it must mean he did not say those exact words, why else would he be so angry over the article that was published? So until I know for sure he said these words, I consider him innocent and blame it on NME. But if it turns out Moz really said those words that were published, I can only say I strongly disagree with him and that I consider racism of any forms amongst the worst sicknesses of the modern world. I would never stop listening to the Smiths even if he said these words for real, however I would be strongly disappointed.

Also from the Guardian comments site (which is pretty good incidently) is this blog entry, which is a bit more sensible and level headed I think. In other words, it's not written by any one from the NME or Merck Mercuriadis (Morrissey's manager. If you're bored, it might also be worth checking out the Mozzer sycophant site http://www.true-to-you.com, on which Merck has posted alot of accusatory messages about why the NME is shit and Morrissey isn't, including legal gubbins between moz's solicitors and the nme (if you're very bored)

<a href="http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/music/2007/11/mozgate.html" target="_blank">http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/music/2007/11/mozgate.html</a>

Apparently, although Morrissey's responses weren't changed, there was more to the interview than just immigration ranting, which they ommited, probably things which made him seem like a more balanced individual, I dunno NME: 'What do you like for breakfast?' Moz: 'Toast, occassionally I'll have marmalade on it'
Although I did read somewhere that the nme altered the questions tim asked to make it seem like he wasn't provoked in to talking about immigration, more as though he just likes to rant about it.
