George Michael let out a 14-tweet tirade Tuesday morning denouncing the British press, the English Prime Minister David Cameron, and the investigation that followed the News International phone hacking scandal.

The English pop musician started off criticizing the Daily Mail for not quoting remarks that he made in defense of gay teenagers.

Michael then claimed that he was invited to testify at the Leveson inquiry, the public investigation launched in the UK after the now-defunct News of the World was accused of engaging in phone hacking. However, he said he declined because “it’s all bullshit.”

Next, he reminded readers the inquiry recently announced that Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul and chairman of News of the World’ parent company, is “not a fit person” to run a media empire.

Finally, Michael said that “Cameron be the most cowardly [Prime Minister] we’ve seen for decades.”

We’ve put the diatribe together in all of its unedited glory.
