Harry Potter the Liberal Democrat

Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, has told the latest issue of Attitude that he is a Liberal Democrat supporter.

Pink News reports that:
On his political allegiances, he said: "I rather like Nick Clegg. At the next election I will almost certainly vote Lib Dem.

"If all the people who liked them voted for them you could change politics overnight and we could have a proper three party system."

However, his thoughts on prime minister Gordon Brown were less positive: "Paul Merton said, and I agree with him, 'it's a tragedy that this man has waited all his life to do this job - and now he finds out he can't do it.'

"I don't like the New Labour thing. I never experienced the optimism of New Labour, I was too young but I hear everyone was up and it was fantastic. I've only seen the bad years of it."

Radcliffe also had little enthusiasm for David Cameron, saying: "No! No, no, no, no, no! David Cameron is barely distinguishable from Tony Blair."

He added: "I think the reason why people don't vote is because the politicians are all so central now, it doesn't seem to matter who you vote for."
