British Parliament Pretty Much Just Talking About Old Smiths Songs

“I accept that if I turned up I probably wouldn’t get This Charming Man and if I went with the Foreign Secretary [William Hague] it would probably be William It Was Really Nothing.”
—British Prime Minister David Cameron responds to a question in Parliament about members of a popular ’80s band expressing displeasure with his claims to be a fan of the group. Opposition MP Kerry McCarty asked Cameron the following: “As someone who claims to be an avid fan of The Smiths, the Prime Minister will no doubt be rather upset this week that both Morrissey and Johnny Marr have banned him from liking them. The Smiths are, of course, the archetypal students’ band. If he wins tomorrow night’s vote [on tuition fees], what songs does he think students will be listening to? Miserable Lie, I Don’t Owe You Anything or Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now.”
