"The pop singer Morrissey claims he can no longer live in a Britain he believes lost to an "immigration explosion".
The former frontman of the Smiths, who is now based in Rome, claimed England was just 'a memory now'.
The 48-year-old added: "Other countries have held on to their basic identity yet it seems to me that England was thrown away.
"If you walk through Knightsbridge on any bland day of the week you won't hear an English accent.
"You'll hear every accent under the sun apart from the British accent."

"The population of Britain could soar to more than 100million in just over 60 years' time, figures prepared by Whitehall experts showed yesterday.
Their calculations set out the huge increase in numbers if migration continues at sky-high levels,... The new figures also embarrassed ministers, who have been caught out repeatedly in errors over the real impact of immigration....Current Government assumptions say net immigration - the number of who come to live in Britain minus the number who emigrate - is likely to go on at 190,000 a year. The estimate was raised this autumn from 145,000."
dailymail.com Could Morrissey possibly be engaging in that most hideous of locational hate crimes, White Flight? You know, that “crime” in which white people flee from their neighborhoods, towns, cities and countries in the face of ever encroaching Diversity. Of course when non-whites are pressured to leave their home it’s sympathetically referred to as Ethnic Cleansing....
I suppose in a hundred years when native Britons have all but been purged from the Island and replaced by a sea of Brown Faces, Diversity in England will have at last been achieved.
