Morrissey David Cameron. Chart star Morrissey has spoken of his unease that the Prime Minister is a fan of his former band The Smiths - because of David Cameron's "extreme lifestyle".He agreed with ex-bandmate Johnny Marr, who has previously said he forbade the Conservative leader from liking the band and has called on him to stop saying he was a fan. Vegetarian Morrissey said it was a "moral issue" because Mr Cameron had hunted stag in the past.

In an interview with BBC Radio 4's Front Row programme, the singer said it was a "mystery" why the PM would like the band.

He told presenter John Wilson he doubted whether he would bother opening the door if Mr Cameron turned up at his dressing room.

The Prime Minister chose Smiths track This Charming Man when he was a castaway on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs four years ago.

Marr distanced himself from Mr Cameron four months ago with a message on Twitter which said: "Stop saying that you like The Smiths, no you don't. I forbid you to like it."

Asked whether he agreed with the guitarist, Morrissey said: "I am indeed because David Cameron is a hunter and he kills stag, and so forth, and that's everything The Smiths were against."
