This interview has been written about as having been re-written by the paper’s editor to make Morrissey look worse, leading to Morrissey taking up a libel case with NME and getting an apology from the NME. Topics (sourced from Morrissey-scans): “looking back on the 80s, his relationship with Johnny Marr, the current music scene, privacy, immigration, and the British identity.”
