Next Thursday has been set as a provisional date for his sentencing, depending on the availability of a medical expert.
Why? There seems little doubt that he's sane.

Morrisey again:
The clip, which appears to have since been pulled, was described by Bragg as a “white supremacist video” that borrowed footage from Stormzy’s headline performance on the Pyramid Stage “while arguing that the British establishment are using him [Stormzy] to promote multiculturalism at the expense of white culture”.

The channel that posted the original video also features clips about the “Great Replacement Theory,” a conspiracy that mass immigration and cultural warfare are being used to eliminate the white populations of Europe and North America.

“…[Morrissey] expresses support for anti-Muslim provocateurs, posts white supremacist videos and, when challenged, clutches his pearls and cries ‘Infamy, infamy, they’ve all got it in for me,’” Bragg wrote. “His recent claim that ‘as a so-called entertainer, I have no rights’ is a ridiculous position made all the more troubling by the fact that it is a common trope among right-wing reactionaries.”

He continued: “Today it was reported that research by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, a UK based anti-extremist organisation, reveals that the Great Replacement Theory is being promoted so effectively by the far right that it is entering mainstream political discourse.

“That Morrissey is helping to spread this idea — which inspired the Christchurch mosque murderer — is beyond doubt. Those who claim that this has no relevance to his stature as an artist should ask themselves if, by demanding that we separate the singer from the song, they too are helping to propagate this racist creed.”

Part of me's thinking it's funny but the other part is watching what seems a classic edge-of-a-breakdown rant and wondering what he might incite his fanboys to get up to.

FSVO "people".

I was chatting to my dentist's wife yesterday and she was telling me of her childhood in the East End in the late 70s/early 80s. Of running the gauntlet of the NF/BNP types.

Grim.
