Remember when Morrissey made music? It seems like it's been a while. He's made more of a name for himself as of late as a poetically pissed off letter writer. If he wasn't a legitimately legendary singer he'd be some infamous moaner in a local paper. He's taken on and trashed subjects like Thanksgiving, Thatcher's funeral, and Foie Gras, and next up on his admirably articulate chopping block is the Royal Family (but that's certainly not to say it's for the first time).

In case you hadn't heard, Morrissey kind of hates the Royals. It's one of the most common points you'll find on any Morrissey primer, usually just below 'Morrissey is a vegetarian' and 'Morrissey never buttons his shirt up all the way'. He's vegetarian in the same way a sketch comedy character is vegetarian, he likes to tell people about it and he's completely unaccepting of any violence shown towards any animal whatsoever. So when the news broke yesterday that Prince William had embarked on a hunting trip with his brother Prince Harry in Spain after having literally just before recording a plea where he called for an end to poaching in Africa, Morrissey smiled a sly smile, unbuttoned an extra button on his shirt, and started writing. Surprisingly he wasn't happy. His letter includes choice level-headed quotes like: "We can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces."

You can read his full letter below.

"This story is old, I know, but it goes on.

One day prior to giving a public plea on behalf of animal welfare (!), Prince William is to be found in Spain (with Prince Harry) shooting and killing as many deer and boar as they possibly can! Although William's speech (no doubt written by his publicity aides at Clarence House) will concentrate on endangered species, William is too thickwit to realize that animals such as tigers and rhino are only driven to near extinction because people who are precisely like himself and his brother have shot them off the map - all in the name of sport and slaughter. Whenever you shoot an animal in the head the outcome is usually the same: death. Just why William kills innocent and defenseless deer does not matter – the fact is, he does it, and we must go on and on asking why any form of violence is acceptable to the British establishment. It is easy for privileged people to assume jealousy to be the reason why anyone would wish to condemn them, but the British Boil Family never fails to be a colossal embarrassment to the United Kingdom. The Spanish trip is more than likely unwillingly funded by the British taxpayer, and we know very well that the British press is duty-bound to always defend and cleanse the bad behavior of the Boil Family - no matter how abysmal and hypocritical their actions. But the rationalists amongst us - who are never allowed to speak, are intelligent enough to realize that endangered species are dying out only because of people like William and Harry, and, for this we can only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces.

MORRISSEY 9 February 2014, France."
