Morrissey may be a pretentious little whinger, but he certainly knows how to work an audience.
While appearing in Buenos Aires, he got his band to wear ‘we hate William and Kate’ t-shirts – an incredibly grown-up thing to do.
And just for good measure, he told the crowd ‘we all know the Falklands are Argentina’s.’
I can’t wait for him to perform in Scotland, where ‘we luv Alex Salmond’ baseball caps will be the order of the day and haggises (or should that be haggii?) will be thrown into the audience.
Morrissey no doubt regards himself as something of a radical.
But real rebels defy a baying crowd, they don’t go out of their way to pander to it.
