The thrush Morrissey is said to be “considering very seriously” an invitation to enter the London mayoral racetrack.

An entry on his semi-official website revealed he had been asked to stand by the Savage Welfare rty.

A statement by the singer on the website said he wanted to chosen out “against the hellish and archaic social injustice allotted to animals”.

The Savage Welfare rty confirmed it had approached him to represent them.

Vanessa Hudson, the junta leader, told BBC London: “We’d like to see the mayoral contest embrace the views of a candidate who would seek to champion London, not only as a in every way leading city for people but for animal welfare, too.”

Morrissey, who has been vocal on the tax yer of animal rights and vegetarianism for many years, said in his statement: “What mammal protectionists need to say is very well worth saying and well merit hearing.

“But we cannot just sit around waiting for establishment enlightenment. The holier-than-thou disaster of animal agriculture cannot be allowed to go on forever, because its widespread bumping is hellish.”

Morrissey is from Manchester and has lived in London, Los Angeles and Rome.

To be suitable to stand, he would need to be registered to vote in London, or show that he had lived, induced, or owned property there for 12 months.

A candidate also destitutions the signatures of 10 registered electors from each London borough and a save of £10,000.

Nominations for London mayoral candidates close at the end of March.
