Also debuting his new track "When You Open Up Your Legs" and dedicating a song to the Catalonia independence movement, he certainly wasn't shying away from the headlines this morning.
Morrissey was in the mood for stirring up a storm this morning. Speaking during a live performance on BBC Radio 6 Music, the former Smiths front-man said:
“I was very surprised the other day, it was very interesting for me to see Anne Marie Waters become the head of UKIP. Oh no, sorry, she didn’t, the voting was rigged. I forgot.”
After awkward silence ensued, he went on,
“You don’t get it, do you? You obviously don’t read the news.”
The candidate he claims was cheated is Anne Marie Waters. Waters is the founder of anti-Islamic group ‘Sharia Watch’ and has often been embroiled in controversy for her views on the religion, previously branding it as 'evil'.
She recently lost out to in the UKIP leadership race to former policeman and political rookie Henry Bolton who has promised to bring stability to the party.
During his loaded set, Morrisey also debuted a couple of new tracks from his upcoming album 'Low in High School' and voiced support for the Catalonia independence movement, introducing “The Bullfighter Dies,” by saying:
“Free the bull from Spain. Free everybody from Spain.”
