Morrissey is aware that the Australian government has decided to kill 2 million street/feral cats. Morrissey has commented:
“We all know that the idiots rule the Earth, but this is taking idiocy just too far. The cats (who keep the rodent population under control) will be killed in a ferocious manner, using Compound 10/80, which is a gut-wrenching poison of the most unimaginable and lengthy horror. The people of Australia would never agree to this - but of course they will not be consulted, because the Australian government as ruled by Tony Abbott is essentially a committee of sheep-farmers who have zero concerns about animal welfare or animal respect. The cats are, in fact, 2 million smaller versions of Cecil The Lion. All I can say is … come, come, nuclear bomb … ”

Morrissey’s upcoming novel List of the Lost via @PenguinUKBooks on Twitter.
‘Beware the novelist … intimate and indiscreet … pompous, prophetic airs … here is the fact of fiction … an American tale where, naturally, evil conquers good, and none live happily ever after, for the complicated pangs of the empty experiences of flesh-and-blood human figures are the reason why nothing can ever be enough. To read a book is to let a root sink down. List of the lost is the reality of what is true battling against what is permitted to be true.'
