we hate William and Kate

Post by falkor »

With the rest of his latest band proudly sporting ‘We Hate William And Kate’ T-shirts, Morrissey tells the 15,000-strong Argentinian audience: ‘The government never listen to the people, to their pain.’

But Morrissey is following a rather well-trodden route of celebrities passing through Argentina and telling the locals what they want to hear.
Just the week before, Roger Waters of Pink Floyd fame said much the same (he later claimed he had been misquoted — although a TV interview shows otherwise).

Days earlier, Hollywood star Sean Penn came through Buenos Aires railing against Britain’s ‘colonialist, ludicrous and archaic’ policy of defending the wishes of its people. It was all music to the ears of Argentina’s President Cristina Kirchner who has become obsessed with repainting Argentina as the plucky victim of British imperialism rather than the beaten bullyboy of 1982.

And she hasn’t done a bad job of it, judging by the number of South American governments prepared to set aside old differences to join the new chorus of hostility to the Union Flag flying in the South Atlantic.

The arguments all run along the same lines: Britain should stop behaving like the old imperial power it no longer is.

Meanwhile, in the warmer Caribbean waters to the north, another charismatic leader is suddenly rounding on Britain’s colonial past.

Portia Simpson Miller, the newly re-elected prime minister of Jamaica has chosen the 50th anniversary of independence to announce that the Queen should be replaced as head of state by an elected president, as in neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago. Constitutional experts suggest that other Caribbean realms may follow suit.

In Spain, there are fresh calls for Britain to relinquish its hold on Gibraltar (regardless of the 98 per cent of Gibraltarians who wish to remain British).

Their passports should be confiscated as soon as they try to step foot back in Blighty, then they should be shipped straight back to Argentina :slnak:

After all, it's a bastion of Human Rights as I recall :slzi:
