When he's not pulling pints in The Thomas House, Mozza's a well-known activist for animal rights and veganism.

In fact, such is commitment to the cause that the ex-Smiths singer is considering running in the upcoming London mayoral race as a candidate for the Animal Welfare Party. Morrissey released a statement on his official website, condemning just about anyone touches meat and admitting that the Animal Welfare Party have asked him to stand as their candidate.

Morrissey said that there "must be a governmental voice against the hellish and archaic social injustice allotted to animals in the United Kingdom simply because those animals do not speak English, otherwise millions of very caring citizens are greatly concerned about issues that no one is able to do anything about."

As well as slamming the Royal Family, Morrissey also called celebrity chef Jamie Oliver an "animal serial killer" and equated abattoirs with Nazi concentration camps, saying that "if you are a part of the milk-drinking population, then you condone systems of torture." 

We'd normally pour a drop or two into our tea, but that's about the height of it.

So, is there a chance Mozza will make into the mayoral race? Most definitely. It only takes 330 signatures to join the London mayoral race, something which shouldn't take all that much. As to whether he'd win is another story for another day.

In the meantime, let's all listen to There Is A Light That Never Goes Out and hope that Morrissey doesn't hate us too much for enjoying a drop of milk with a cup of tea.
