Don’t Misquote Me!

Morrissey will file a lawsuit against music magazine NME for quoting him as saying Britian's identity is disappearing, because of the immigrants.  He's quoted by the magazine as saying, "With the issue of immigration, it's very difficult because, although I don't have anything against people from other countries, the higher the influx into England the more the British identity disappears. If you walk through Knightsbridge on any bland day of the week you won't hear an English accent. You'll hear every accent under the sun apart from the British accent."

Morrissey's spokeswhore said, "They have not only misquoted Morrissey, they have omitted critical parts of the interview and distorted the tone of the piece, his responses and the questions he was asked in order to try and present an inflammatory case."

NME confirmed they were contacted, but wouldn't say anything else.

Part of me believes Morrissey said that shit, because he's kind of a nut job. I wouldn't fuck with him though. He looks like he won't ever hesitate to chew off one of your cheeks if the mood called for it.

That's one of the main reasons why I love London. I love all the accents and languages and shit.
