Comedian Eddie Izzard joined the Labour campaign trail yesterday on Tuesday 9 May outside Coventry’s Hearsall Community Primary School to urge people to vote.
Izzard joined Coventry North West MP Geoffrey Robinson, who he supported in urging people to support the MP as well.
“We are for the many, not the few,” the comedian said.
“I believe the leader of the Tory party is in a helicopter today with the slogan for the few, not the many.”
“This is an election the country didn’t want but the Conservative Party did. They forced it upon us,” Izzard added.
“My visit here today is to support Geoffrey Robinson in Coventry North West and to encourage people to vote for the Labour party. But above all to encourage people to get registered to vote – midnight on May 22 is the deadline.”
“People fought and died in the Second World War to keep democracy in this country,” the comedian reminded the crowd.
Izzard stays politically active and has previously announced his intentions to run as a Labour MP.
Izzard is in support of Macron who recently won the French presidency.
“That was a very positive result. The French election result was a fantastic thing.”
“Things like that have to be fought for and we have to fight the Tory party.”
