Morrissey Wants An Honour

Singer MORRISSEY accepts he has wrecked his chances of being honoured by QUEEN ELIZABETH II - but he insists he is more deserving of a title than many recipients. The former SMITHS frontman distanced himself from the establishment with tracks like THE QUEEN IS DEAD, but now concedes he'd be proud to pick up a prize like those given to SIR TOM JONES, SIR MICK JAGGER and the newly knighted BONO. The 47-year-old says, "It's songs like that (The Queen Is Dead) which mean my chances are slim. "But just look at who has been honoured already. Mad Irish singer DANIEL O'DONNELL has an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) and obese JAMIE OLIVER has an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire)."

Bono is a peacemaker, but because of past horrific cruelties done by the English to Ireland, I'm surprised Morrissey feels that way as he has never set himself up as a peacemaker. Ireland seems to have forgiven, and I guess men become wiser as they age.

With the all and the might of the Moz alight,never to be ceasedand revelant tonight.A man whose memory will never collapse, an ego to dust.Judged by those with fruit livers,smog killers, light a cigarette,enjoy the balm of delight.End those wordsthat sput and spew,aimed at you.Swim the blood in those irish viens.Vane is the gameof the hair that retreats.
