Morrissey Threatens University Lab

MORRISSEY has hit out at England's prestigious Oxford University, after learning the institution is developing a new animal testing laboratory. The outspoken animal rights campaigner performed a gig in the city last week (25MAY06), and used the opportunity to air his strong views. He told fans, "If you agree with vivisection, go and be vivisected upon yourself," before warning lab workers, "We will get you." A spokesperson for Oxford-based animal rights group Speak, who were invited by the singer to have a stall at the show, says, "We need to talk about the violence being committed upon animals. "I applaud the fact that Morrissey's been brave enough to stand up and say what he thinks. "I suspect when he said 'We will get you' he wasn't talking about violence at all, but about exposing these people for what they do."
