morrissey getty Morrissey trashes Queen Elizabeth Diamond JubileeAs England celebrates the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, there is one noted person who isn’t interested in any of the pomp and circumstance.

Morrissey, former frontman of The Smiths, ripped the whole affair, calling it “degrading.” The man who sang “The Queen is Dead” posted his thoughts on Saturday (June 2) on

The outspoken singer writes, “This week, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee presents a new lesson in the force of tyranny, and is an expression of loathing and abhorrence of the British poor – and all done, quite naturally, at the public’s expense!”

“It is degrading to anyone of intelligence,” he continues. “While dictatorships throughout the Middle East are gently condemned by the British government, there is no examination of the extremism enforced by the British ‘royals,’ who remain the most overpaid and most utterly useless people on the planet. Having done nothing to earn our respect, they demand everything by return. It is a cunning and extravagant form of benefit fraud.”

So tell us how you really feel.
