Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he will “almost certainly” vote for the Liberal Democrats at the next election.
The actor, who plays the title character in the fantasy franchise, told Attitude that he “rather liked” party leader Nick Clegg.
“If all the people who liked them voted for them you could change politics overnight and we could have a proper three-party system,” he explained.
Discussing current Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown, he said: “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.”
He went on to claim that Conservative leader David Cameron was “barely distinguishable” from Tony Blair, adding: “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.”
