Morrissey has slammed London Mayor Sadiq Khan following the rise of violent attacks recorded in the capital saying London is “second only to Bangladesh” and claimed Mr Khan “cannot talk properly”.
The former Smiths frontman lashed out at the Mayor of London in an interview discussing his views on racism, violence and the capital.
And Morrissey stated that London “is debased” and that “civilisation is over”.
Going on a rampage against Mr Khan, he added: “The Mayor of London tells us about ‘Neighborhood policin’ — what is ‘policin’?
“He tells us London is an ‘amazin’ city. What is ‘amazin’? This is the Mayor of London! And he cannot talk properly!
“I saw an interview where he was discussing mental health, and he repeatedly said ‘men’el’… he could not say the words ‘mental health’. The Mayor of London!”
Morrissey, 58, also went on claiming that “we now live in the Age of Atrocity” because of the way authorities have been dealing with acid attacks in London.
Speaking to interviewer John Riggers via his new website Morrissey Central, the singer said: “London is second only to Bangladesh for acid attacks.
“All of the attacks are non-white, and so they cannot be truthfully addressed by the British government or the Met Police or the BBC because of political correctness.
“What this means is that the perpetrator is considered to be as much of a victim as the actual victim.”
Data from the London Metropolitan Police showed a sharp rise in acid attacks in 2017, when authorities recorded the record number of 465 recorded, up from 395 the previous year and 255 in 2015.
According to latest statistics, the Met Police have launched 56 murder investigations in 2018 so far.
Morrissey also declared the term racist is now meaningless.
He said: “As far as racism goes, the modern Loony Left seem to forget that Hitler was Left wing.
“But of course, we are all called racist now, and the word is actually meaningless.
“It’s just a way of changing the subject. When someone calls you racist, what they are saying is ‘hmm, you actually have a point, and I don’t know how to answer it, so perhaps if I distract you by calling you a bigot we’ll both forget how enlightened your comment was’.”
