Joseph Corré, designer Vivienne Westwood and Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, has announced that he will burn his multimillion dollar collection of punk memorabilia in Camden on November 26th.
"The Queen giving 2016, the Year of Punk, her official blessing is the most frightening thing I've ever heard," Corré said. "Talk about alternative and punk culture being appropriated by the mainstream. Rather than a movement for change, punk has become like a fucking museum piece or a tribute act."
“A general malaise has now set in amongst the British public. People are feeling numb. And with numbness comes complacency. People don’t feel they have a voice anymore. The most dangerous thing is that they have stopped fighting for what they believe in. They have given up the chase. We need to explode all the shit once more”.

"Politicians are Criminals. Say CRIMINALS. Just keep saying it until it becomes automatic. It will build awareness of the danger we’re in."
— Vivienne Westwood
Corré urges others to join him on November 26th to fight for his cause; and we bet his mother is proud.
