The former Smiths star has been hitting out against politicians, both home and abroad and has called Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson a “fucking moron”.
Marr was talking to Uncut magazine about the election of Donald Trump as US President compared to British politicians:
“Trump is easily the best example to hold up, but the UK version is just as toxic and – literally – closer to home.
“But I suppose a destructive, negative reactive regime is the same here as it is in America.
“I just don’t think Boris Johnson is quite as dangerous somehow. He’s just a fucking moron.”
Marr is set to release his third solo album, Call The Comet, later this year. It’s the follow-up to 2013’s The Messenger and Playland from 2014. "What bothered me, going into the record, was that my creativity was being contaminated by these people”, he admitted.
