The Manchester-born singer, Morrissey, has hit out at politicians for their reaction to the bombing in his hometown that has killed 22 people and injured 59 more.
“Manchester mayor Andy Burnham says the attack is the work of an ‘extremist’. An extreme what? An extreme rabbit?”
Criticising the prime minister, the musician added: “Also, ‘will not break us’ means that the tragedy will not break her, or her policies on immigration. The young people of Manchester are already broken – thanks all the same, Theresa.”
He claimed that “her own life is lived in a bullet-proof bubble, and she evidently does not need to identify any young people today in Manchester morgues”.
Morrissey also criticised the London mayor, Sadiq Khan, who he said had failed to condemn the Islamic State group after it claimed responsibility for the attack. Khan is a Muslim.
Morrissey cited government immigration policy among his complaints saying the prime minister would never change her immigration policy in the light of the attacks. Police have said that the bomber, Salman Abedi, was British-born and from Manchester.
“In modern Britain everyone seems petrified to officially say what we all say in private. Politicians tell us they are unafraid, but they are never the victims. How easy to be unafraid when one is protected from the line of fire. The people have no such protections,” the singer wrote on his Facebook page.
The family of Georgina Callander, who tragically died in the Manchester bombing, has warned the government it must ‘open its eyes’ before more parents lose their children to terror.

The 22 people killed in the Manchester bombing included children, with the youngest just eight years old. Of the 59 wounded, many were children under 16.
The word ‘MUSLIM,’ none dare say it …
“To stop this, we need to identify what’s happening. And it’s happening because the Quran, in over a hundred verses, incites murder and war against us!”
“Almost certainly, nothing will change. There are things we can change; mass surveillance of hate preaching mosques, solitary confinement of individuals who are likely to radicalise others in prison, extreme vetting and strict quotas on Muslim immigration, deporting known terrorists, prosecuting NGOs who send out boats to rescue unvetted migrants – some of them who sympathise with, or are members of Isis.” – Paul Joseph Watson
“But we have a choice. We have hope. Don’t let them tell you not to be angry – “to go on with life as usual.” Because that’s not bravery – it’s cowardice. Enough hashtags. Enough vigils. Enough celebrity platitudes. It hasn’t worked. We need change. We need action. Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are Anger and Courage. Anger at the way things are and Courage to see that they don’t remain as they are.”
