It's not just Russell Brand. Here are the latest ce-Labour-ities

Which stars are supporting Miliband?

This isn’t just another opportunity to wheel out our ingenious political pun-ditry oriented headline - over the last few days, several prominent figures have jumped off the fence and rushed to support Labour ahead of the general election on Thursday.

If you read the list of famous Labour supporters we compiled back in March, then you’ll already know that Martin Freeman, Daniel Radcliffe, Lily Allen and David Tennant are on the red side, but here are the latest additions:

Russell Brand

A major u-turn from the comedian and journalist, who once urged people not to vote, has seen Brand give his backing to Ed Miliband’s Labour party, everywhere except Brighton, where he is supporting the Greens’ Caroline Lucas.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Brand said: “What I heard Ed Miliband say is that if we speak, he will listen. So on that basis, I think we’ve got no choice but to take decisive action to end the danger of the Conservative party.”

 

Steve Coogan

Fellow comedian Steve Coogan has also jumped aboard Miliband’s ship, lending his support to Labour.

Coogan has released a pretty amusing video explaining why, citing “honesty, decency and “hardwork,” and says he was brought up not just to “look after number one and to hell with everyone else”.

 

Tinie Tempah

Number one single scoring London rapper Tinie Tempah, AKA Patrick Okogwu, has also come out for Labour after it emerged that he is friends with shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna. Tampah posted a picture of the pair together on Instagram. Check it out.

 

Steven Hawking

Often labelled the most intelligent man on earth, Professor Steven Hawking said recently that Ed Miliband is the best choice for prime Minister. According to the Independent, Hawking has previously spoken out against privitisation of the NHS, describing it as “Britain’s finest public service”.

 

Ronnie O’Sullivan

The snooker champion recently met up with Miliband for a game of pool. In a video, he explained why he’s supporting Labour.

 

Miliband was evidently pleased about it.

  • Many wealthy celebs have always been lefties; but considering Labour's record on the NHS and the economy during their 13 years, why would anyone be stupid enough to vote them in again? Trebled cost of the NHS, doubled doctor's pay whilst letting them opt out of evenings and weekends, hospitals run by managers instead of doctors. ruinous PRIVATE finance iniative by Brown, Balls and Milliband to build hospitals to keep debt off the Government books, one reason so many trusts are in financial difficulties, lied about North Staffs and tried to sweep itunder the carpet, and fianlly allowed 3.6 million into the country adding enormously to problems with the NHS, schools and housing.
