Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr has hit out at Prime Minister David Cameron for liking The Smiths.

The guitarist addressed Cameron, who has regularly bigged up The Smiths, via his Twitter account, where he wrote:

David Cameron, stop saying that you like The Smiths, no you don’t. I forbid you to like it.”


A response by the Prime Minister has not yet been issued.

Cameron‘s fondness for the band saw other fans protest against him when he visited Smiths mecca Salford Lads Club in 2008.
