London, July 18 (ANI): Singer Morrissey has taken a swipe at Sir Paul McCartney for accepting the honour of knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II.
When asked by a journalist from the ZulalMuzik blog about McCartney's description of the monarch as fabulous, the veteran called it silly.
I think it's silly because she isn't fabulous, and it was Paul McCartney who once sang Give Ireland Back To The Irish, directed at the Queen. She didn't give the six counties back to Ireland and she never will because she wants the ports. That isn't fabulous to me, the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
Obviously, when anyone is made 'Sir' or given a royal gong, it quietens them down and they trot into line. I am proud of David Bowie for refusing a knighthood. Albert Finney also refused.
The British royals are not royal to me. They are cunning parasites, and it's quite breathtaking that the Queen has gotten away with it for so long, he added. (ANI)
