Manchester Evening News

The Manchester Evening News have stated on 17 October 2013 that Morrissey 'claims he was "touched inappropriately by a teacher at school"'. Morrissey has never made such a claim. Furthermore, Morrissey does not use the word 'inappropriately' unless it is followed by an explanation of what an action might be inappropriate to.
Morrissey is seeking legal advice on this matter.

When i read the relevant passage in the Autohagiography, I had a distinct feeling it would be one of the things that brought the alabaster crashing down...

There is NOTHING inappropriate about a teacher giving a 14-year old boy a slow and sensual wrist massage.
How dare the Manchester Evening News try and twist this tender love story into something vile! :(

Why has it taken so long say something about this? Perhaps he's had enough of being portrayed as the villain in the press due to his recent comments and now wants to be portrayed as the victim?

Do you ever get the feeling that some of these statements Moz issues via 'True To You' are written whilst he is steamingly drunk?

Did we ever get an explanation from Morrissey as to why the "best friend on the payroll" stuff was removed from the US Edition? I'm shocked he didn't pounce all over that one.

Is it possible that a retired teacher's solicitor has been in touch to let Morrissey know that his client is not yet dead?

Yeah - that's a not unlikely reading of the situation. Morrissey CLEARLY states that the teacher touches him in an 'unnecessarily sensual' way, and regarded him in a sexual manner, so I can't see how he could POSSIBLY object to the Manchester Evening News headline on that ground.

On the other hand, if the ex-teacher in question, or his relatives, have made complaints and threatened to sue Morrissey and/or the publishers, then I can see Morrissey putting this flimsy after-the-fact denial out there to try and dampen down the fire. The fact that these headlines were in the papers a few months ago and he has only responded publically now is highly suspicious on that front.

Interesting.
