Morrissey endorses For Britain
In an interview with author and blogger Fiona Dodwell, on 5th June, singer songwriter Morrissey of ‘The Smiths’ fame once again threw his weight behind the patriotic centre-ground party For Britain.
The singer this time endorsed the candidacy of Anne Marie Waters. The For Britain candidate in the upcoming Lewisham by-election, stating: “It is the first time in my life that I will vote for a political party. Finally I have hope. I find the Tory-Labour-Tory-Labour constant switching to be pointless. For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish ‘racist’ accusation. I don’t think the word ‘racist’ has any meaning anymore, other than to say
“you don’t agree with me, so you’re a racist. ” People can be utterly, utterly stupid.”
Morrissey then went on to call the For Britain leader a ‘humane version of Thatcher’, saying:
“Anne Marie Waters seeks open discussion about all aspects of modern Britain, whereas other parties will not allow diverse opinion. She is like a humane version of Thatcher … if such a concept could be. She is absolute leadership, she doesn’t read from a script, she believes in British heritage, freedom of speech, and she wants everyone in the UK to live under the same law.”
Anne Marie Waters and Lewisham East
Anne Marie Waters stood in Lewisham East in 2015 and came third. Before that, she campaigned to Save Lewisham Hospital during her time in the Labour Party. The former Labour Party candidate’s slogan, on her leaflets and mobile billboards roaming the constituency:
‘I Left Labour, So Can You’
Morrissey endorsed Waters during her campaign to become the next leader of UKIP. Then after the launch of her new political party, The ‘For Britain’ Movement. For Britain campaigns not just for Brexit, but to bring down the entire European Union, temporarily freeze immigration and deport illegal immigrants, speak honestly about the impact of Islam on society, and to make the public sector more accountable.
Along with a policy to ban all religious slaughter and enhance animal welfare, Anne Marie Waters proposes making chief executives of public services like the NHS, and local councils, more accountable. Her party believes in giving local people the power to sack chief executives who do not do their job.
Anne Marie Waters reaction
When speaking about Morrissey’s endorsement of her party, Waters said:
“I’m honoured to have the support of one of Britain’s most talented singers. Morrissey, thank you for being brave enough to say what needs to be said. Thank you for being a champion of the regular, hard-working British people, and thank you for being a champion for animals. You are always welcome on the campaign trail.”
