Wedding Bells cynical chimes

The Moz father

Morrissey on the Royal Wedding:

“Why would I watch the wedding? Why would I watch it? I couldn’t take any of that seriously. I don’t think the so-called Royal family speak for England now, and I don’t think England needs them. I do seriously believe that they are benefit scroungers, nothing else. I don’t believe they serve any purpose whatsoever.

I’m not an anarchist, but I believe that people don’t want the Royal family — the so-called Royal family. They’re not royal to me, but they’re royal to the media for some reason.

The press reports from Buckingham tell you that people love them, but go out and speak to people on the streets and they will laugh at you. They really will.”

True usually, but not so much around the wedding that happens today. The Economist this week suggests becoming a Republic would be the best wedding present for the royal couple.

Still the beer tent on the village green holds the promise of merry making, and I would wish any married couple well. With 2/3 marriages ending in divorce they might need more then that.

All the best to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The Happy Couple
