Is Robbie Williams more respected in the U.K. than Morrissey?

    Probably.  The British are legendary for not appreciating their own culture.  In all fairness I think Morrissey's Nationalistic views are upsetting a few people but he's always had them so it's nothing new.

    As for Robbie Williams I have never understood the popularity of that talentless hack.

    Yes because Robbie’s songs are generally upbeat but Morrissey’s make you suicidal.

    Both of them are seen as yesterday's men in the UK. Williams was much more commercially successful and still appeals widely to the over 30s, and has become a straight M.O.R. entertainer. Morrisey's fan base is probably now mainly the over 40s, and he was always more "indie" and cool, but the truth is he has recently lost a LOT of respect and many previous fans due to his weird, intolerant political statements.
