From today’s Sunday Telegraph:
‘I have voted, yes, but I’m not going to tell you who for,’ he smiles. ‘I’m not Conservative or Labour, I don’t have a political leaning, I’m a tactical voter. … I’d like a single transferable vote, because I think it would make more sense, particularly for the Lib Dems because they get such a big vote and a tiny percentage of the House of Commons.’
This may be the first time in recorded history that the words ‘single transferable vote’ have emanated freely from the mouth of a mainstream pop star. We’re a long way, indeed, from the world of Rick Astley.
Quick, send that chap a membership form.
