Scottish Independence: Morrissey urges Scots to leave 'United King-dumb'
Outspoken singer says he loves Scotland, says they 'don’t need Westminster'
Morrissey, known for his penchant for making controversial statements, has become the latest personality to wade in on the Scottish independence debate.
The World Peace is None of Your Business singer has placed himself firmly in the "yes" camp, according to an interview with Ireland’s Hot Press magazine.
"They must cut ties with the United King-dumb," he said.
"I love Scotland, and I love the Scottish spirit and they do not need Westminster in the least."
His comments came alongside the declaration that "it would be a great help if Princess Anne gassed Jamie Oliver" when discussing what should be the first steps of the British Empire for ending animal cruelty.
The former frontman of The Smiths is not alone in his opinion. He joins a host of celebrities who have spoken out in favour of an independent Scotland, from Sean Connery to Annie Lennox, Billy Bragg to Alan Cumming.
