Morrissey wants "insufferable" David, Victoria Beckham "flogged"

By
Morrissey has launched an extraordinary attack at David and Victoria Beckham, declaring that he would have them "dragged to the edge of the village and flogged".

The former Smiths frontman argued that the apparent desire to have a celebrity couple "insufferable to anyone of intelligence" return to the UK highlights "what's wrong with this country".

"I'd... have the Peckhams dragged to the edge of the village and flogged because they are insufferable to anyone of intelligence, and they actively chase the paparazzi," he stated in Loaded.

"We don't seem to realise that David and Victoria Peckham will soon be back and God forbid they will be bestowed with titles Sir and Lady Peckham, this is what's wrong with this country, we don't seem to care."

Morrissey continued to rant against David by saying that football as a whole has "no meaning whatsoever" given its stars' perceived lack of intelligence.

"Football often seems to me to have no meaning whatsoever other than just to be there," he commented.

"It can't be elevated any higher because so many footballers are paid £200,000 a week, yet couldn't identify a harp."

The notoriously outspoken musician recently branded Prince William and Kate Middleton "arrogant" following the death of hoax call nurse Jacintha Saldanha and likened the London 2012 Olympics to Nazi Germany.
