I am in the process of changing my online presence from the ‘Hatful of History’ moniker. While I remain a fan of The Smiths, I cannot, in good faith, remain a fan of Morrissey while he promotes the far right and espouses xenophobic views. This article in The Guardian explains the conscious uncoupling that Morrissey/Smiths fans are having to go through at the moment.
For me, this means removing an explicit reference to Morrissey from my online identity. I have changed my twitter handle to @evanishistory and the same with Instagram. I am in the process of working out how to transfer this blog to a new URL.
Hopefully this blog will have new identity in the near future!
