Singer MORRISSEY was quizzed by the FBI and British intelligence after speaking out against the American and British governments.
The Brit is a famous critic of the US-led war in Iraq and has dubbed President GEORGE W BUSH a "terrorist" - but he was baffled to be hauled in by authorities. ...
"They were trying to determine if I was a threat to the government, and similarly in England. But it didn't take them very long to realise that I'm not.Well, he did write a song in the '80s about a vacation in a horrible seaside resort, with the sardonic line, "Come, come, nuclear bomb..." Clearly he's a menace.
"I don't belong to any political groups, I don't really say anything unless I'm asked directly and I don't even demonstrate in public. I always assume that so-called authoritarian figures just assume that pop/rock music is slightly insane and an untouchable platform for the working classes to stand up and say something noticeable."
