Morrissey and His Band ‘Hate William and Kate’


Morrissey and his bandmates staged a sartorial protest of Britain's continued ownership of the Falkland Islands at a concert in Argentina, according to the Hollywood Reporter:

"The [British] government, the governments, never listen to the people, to their pain," he told the audience, blaming the government, not the people, for the political difficulty.

Morrissey initially commented on the dispute, which has been enflamed by Prince William's Royal Air Force assignment to the islands, on Friday, when he told another audience in Argentina that “You know of course the Malvinas Islands, everybody knows they belong to Argentina so please do not blame the British people, we know the islands belong to you." The Malvinas Islands are the Spanish name for the Falklands.
