Morrissey grew up in Manchester, forming the Smiths in the same city. So, he had a lot to say following the tragic suicide bombing that took the lives of 22 at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester this week. In a brand new statement, the regularly outspoken artist criticised British politicians including Theresa May and the Queen.

"Theresa May says such attacks ‘will not break us,’ but 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," he wrote. "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 then went on to say that "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." Read the full statement below.
