Morrissey hit out today at the campaigners pushing "Ding, Dong! The Witch is Dead" to the top of the charts, branding it "an abhorrent affront to tortured genius".
"It's fucking unbelievable!" said the furious former Smiths frontman, outside his lavish Los Angeles home. "I wrote 'Margaret On The Guillotine' twenty five years ago at the height of the evil cow's reign of terror, risking my precious life to bleed words of poetic inspiration to the proletariat of England, in the face of oppression from a totalitarian dominatrix and her fascist regime, and this is the thanks I get!".
Pacing up and down in his cabbage-leaf slippers, the singer lamented "There's no bigger fan of Judy Garland than myself but, come on, I wrote this song specifically just this occasion. What is wrong with these carnivorous luddites? I've got Keats and Wilde on my side, but Elton John changes a couple of words on an old flop and sells five million singles! I bled for the right to dance on her grave. There's just no karma in this world. I despair."
