Morrissey calls for David Cameron to resign if pig allegation is true

Morrissey says British Prime Minister David Cameron should step down if allegations about his conduct with a pig are true.

The politician is currently subject of huge media interest after an extract from a forthcoming book by Conservative donor Lord Ashcroft was published.

It claimed that Cameron put his private parts in the head of a dead pig during an Bullingdon Club initiation ritual at Oxford University a number of years ago.

Animal rights support Morrissey has now issued a statement decrying the allegation, suggesting that Cameron should resign if it is true.

He said: "No, boys won't be boys - not when it's sexual perversion and also involves a vulnerable victim of slaughter, a feeling being who lost his or her life and then was used for a prank.

"Where have we seen other people in power misusing and sexually abusing corpses? This conduct is not excusable just because the perpetrator is prejudiced against and sneers at the other individual's identity. A prime minister is supposed to protect the most vulnerable.

"Most pigs in the UK already live lives filled with pain and fear, confined to severely crowded, filthy sheds and denied the opportunity to engage in any natural behaviour.

"They are routinely mutilated, usually without any anaesthetics, including castration and cutting off their tails and teeth. If the allegations made by Lord Ashcroft are true, that Mr Cameron performed a sexual act on a dead pig while at Oxford University, then it shows a callousness and complete lack of empathy entirely unbefitting a man in his position, and he should resign."
