Morrissey’s music has officially been banned from Spillers Records in Cardiff, which is the oldest record store in the world, after the singer has continuously showed support for England’s far-right.

After Morrissey controversially appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon sporting a For Britain badge, Spillers Records refused to stock The Smiths’ frontman’s celebrated catalogue of tunes. For Britain is a controversial political party founded by Anne Marie Waters, who supports anti-Islam views.
Following the performance, Waters thanked the singer in a personal video message, claiming his support of the party swelled their membership numbers.
“I’m saddened but ultimately not surprised that Spillers is unable to stock Morrissey’s releases any longer,” owner Ashli Todd explained to WalesOnline. “I only wished I’d done it sooner.”
