Jon McClure Slams Lily Allen and Muse For Speaking Out Against File-Sharing

October 9, 2009
Jon McClure Slams Lily Allen and Muse For Speaking Out Against File-SharingThe Reverend has told Lily Allen that she needs to put her tits away before she comments on issues such as file-sharing.

McClure, the master orator of our generation, even laid the boot into Muse for joining in the debate too.

He ranted to The Sun: "We've got Iraq today, Afghanistan, bankers are taking the piss, MPs are taking the piss, BNP are on the rampage, plus we're melting the ice caps.

"There's a lot to be angry about but nobody wants to do it.

"What upsets me is last week Lily Allen and Muse came out and said 'We've got to campaign against file sharing. We're having breakfast with Peter Mandelson and we're gonna tell him to shut down kids' internets.'

"Now, what a crying shame it is that all you can get angry or upset about is kids nicking your music.

"The thing with Lily is, I think when you get your nipples out in GQ and you're trying to make serious political comment with the government, you're putting yourself in a silly position."

He continued: “At the end of the day, I stole Lily Allen's album and there's nothing she can do about it.

"People think I'm a communist because I've got these views, but I'm not. I'm not saying people can't earn a living, but let's be fair.

"Muse, you're playing Wembley stadium, Lily Allen you're playing arenas. You've got millions of pounds, there's things happening that are far more important than that.

"The thing with music now is it's all self-preservation. Of course you don't want kids to nick stuff but they're doing it all the time and good luck to them."
