Former Smiths frontman Morrissey has defended Tommy Robinson and described his treatment as 'shocking' in another controversial interview.
In a rant about the loss of free speech, Morrissey also reiterated his support for far-right political party 'For Britain', founded by anti-Islam activist Anne Marie Waters.
He claimed the party had been dismissed by the mainstream media with the 'usual childish racist accusation', adding 'I don't think the word racist has any meaning any more.'
Robinson, the founder of the English Defence League, live streamed himself for an hour on Facebook Live identifying defendants in a live court case last month.
He was later jailed for contempt of court for live streaming the images of the defendants and talking about the case despite legal orders against it.
