MorrisseyCONTROVERSIAL singer Morrissey has launched a scathing attack on the Queen during her state visit to Ireland.


The former Smiths frontman, who released the chart-topping album The Queen is Dead in 1986, compared the Queen Elizabeth to Libyan despot Muammar Gaddaffi and deposed Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak.
Writing in the Irish magazine Hot Press he said:"The very existence of the Queen and her now enormous family ... is entirely against any notion of democracy, and is against freedom of speech. For a broad historical view of what the Queen is and how she 'rules', examine Gaddafi or Mubarak, and see if you can spot any difference.


"The Queen's visit to Ireland is part of a new palace PR campaign to reinvent the Windsors. The message from the Queen will be the same as ever: who we are born to is more important than what we achieve in life."

He even alleged the Queen had allowed Republican hunger strikers to  die at the Maze prison in the 1980s because she had not dismissed the then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

He wrote: "The Queen also has the power to give back the six counties to the Irish people, allowing Ireland to be a nation once again.

"The fact that she has not done so is fascism in full flow. What else could it be?"

Morrissey, was born Stephen Morrissey, to Irish catholic parents in Manchester, England. He now lives in Los Angeles.
