Singer Morrissey has praised Anne Marie Waters, leader of For Britain, and claimed that Tommy Robinson has received “shocking treatment” during an interview for website tremr.com.
"I have been following a new party called For Britain which is led by Anne Marie Waters," said the former frontman of The Smiths.
"It is the first time in my life that I will vote for a political party. Finally I have hope. I find the Tory-Labour-Tory-Labour constant switching to be pointless. For Britain has received no media support and have even been dismissed with the usual childish 'racist' accusation. I don't think the word 'racist' has any meaning any more, other than to say 'you don't agree with me, so you're a racist.' People can be utterly, utterly stupid.
"Anne Marie Waters seeks open discussion about all aspects of modern Britain, whereas other parties will not allow diverse opinion. She is like a humane version of Thatcher, if such a concept could be. She is absolute leadership, she doesn't read from a script, she believes in British heritage, freedom of speech, and she wants everyone in the UK to live under the same law.
“I find this compelling, now, because it's very obvious that Labour or the Tories do not believe in free speech... I mean, look at the shocking treatment of Tommy Robinson."
He added that the politics is unavoidable in the modern climate. "The world is now politically charged. I am simply a part of it. Everything is politicised now. My previous album World Peace Is None of Your Business was dropped after ten days of release because it was thought too political. In other words, it was too true.
"I know the media don't want Anne Marie Waters and they try to smear her, but they are wrong and they should give her a chance, and they should stop accusing people who want open debate as being 'racist'. As I said previously, the left has become right-wing and the right-wing has become left - a complete switch, and this is a very unhappy modern Britain."
