Morrissey has shared his bold thoughts about Covid-19, branding it ‘Con-vid’ and comparing society during the pandemic to ‘slavery’.

The Smiths singer – who has been criticised for his views in the past – shared his thoughts during an outspoken interview with Sam Esty Rayner, published on the musician’s official website.

Sharing the term he gave to Covid-19, Morrissey said: ‘The bigger problem is that nobody can any longer agree with anyone else, and this is the main outcome of Con-vid.

‘It has brought the worst out in people, and we weren’t ever in this together.

‘We are deprived of seeing and hearing other people, and above all, you want to be with others who see and hear what you see and hear, because this is basic oxygen for the human soul. Take it away and people are dead.’

When his interview suggested ‘Covid society’ was the ‘precise description of slavery’ adding ‘yet we are supposed to be in a time when anything connected to slavery must be blown up or thrown in a canal in Bristol,’ Morrissey replied: ‘Precisely.

‘And more people are now forced into poverty which is another form of slavery, as is tax and Council Tax and all the other ways in which we are pinned down and tracked.

‘Our present freedom is restricted to visiting supermarkets and buying sofas.’

He added: ‘The government act like Chinese emperors… “We will allow you to live as we do if you behave yourself.”’

Despite his statements, Morrissey isn’t afraid of backlash, saying ‘you can’t cancel someone who has always been cancelled’.

He said in the interview, titled Turning The Inside Out: ‘When did you last see me on television, or hear me on the radio? I unintentionally invented the condition of being cancelled!”’

The star went on: ‘I unintentionally invented the condition of being cancelled…’

Morrissey has come under fire for his views in the past and previously shocked fans by claiming ‘everyone prefers their own race’ and suggesting that only the far-right, anti-Islam party For Britain can unite the left and right.
