Meek, modest & mild Morrissey is at it again. In an interview with BBC Radio 5Live, Morrissey has stuck his rather laborious oar into the Royal Wedding hoo-har that's been rife this week:

“Why would I watch the wedding? Why would I watch it?” he said. “I couldn’t take any of that seriously. I don’t think the so-called royal family speak for England now and I don’t think England needs them. I do seriously believe that they are benefit scroungers and nothing else. I don’t believe they serve any purpose whatsoever.

“The press reports from Buckingham Palace tell you that people love them, but go out now and speak to people on the street and they will laugh at you. They really will.”

Morrissey released a greatest hits album this week, and has an auto-biography lined up for us all later in the year.
