Morrissey Says Bears Have Earned It Already, Baby

Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe has earned kudos from the Mozfather himself for an opinion piece in the UK’s Times that blasted the killing of Canadian bears for the Queen’s Guards’ hats.

In a letter that ran in yesterday’s TimesMorrissey wrote, “I welcome Ann Widdecombe’s views on the depravity of bear-baiting in order to serve the vanities of the British Army Guards. … [T]here is no sanity in making life difficult on purpose for the Canadian brown bear, especially for Guards’ hats that look absurd in the first place, and which can easily be replaced by faux versions (thanks to the visionary Stella McCartney) with no death involved.”

Morrissey has made clear in no uncertain terms that he wants the Guards to switch to faux fur right away. Please, please, please help him get what he wants.

    Why are these trappings done except for the hungry money for their fur. People can be so cruel and lord knows Prince Charles is not a sweety by any means so keep up the fight and try to get him to keep to faux fur for hats.

    The U.K is ahead of the times when it comes to certain animal welfare issues, but not the Ministry of Defense.
    There is no need to use the skin and fur from a murdered bear from Canada in order to attract tourists; faux fur will look just the same whether people think the soldiers look smart or stupid!
