At the NME awards last night, Johnny Marr was asked if The Smiths might ever re-unite. His response?
We won’t be reforming this week. Maybe if the government stepped down. If this government stepped down, I’ll reform the band. How’s that? That’s a fair trade, isn’t it? I think the country would be better off, don’t you? I’ll do it if the coalition steps down.
It’s not the first time Marr has made his feelings plain to David Cameron. Their powerful fan likes to boast of his knowledge of The Smiths, causing Marr to tweet in 2010:
David Cameron, stop saying that you like The Smiths, no you don’t. I forbid you to like it.
