Listening to Jonathan Ross on Radio 2 today, I heard him discussing politics with his guest Richard Wilson, who I always loved in the hilarious role of Victor Meldrew. He was on the show because of his current play, Whipping It Up, based around the concept of an opposition party winning the next election by 1 vote. In which case it would be the whips vote to ensure everyone voted in support of their party leaders.
It turned out that both Jonathan Ross, in the distant past and Richard Wilson, to this day, have been strong supporters of the Labour Party. In fact, the thought of a young Jonathan, knocking on people’s doors and spreading his ideals, has finally tipped the balance in favour of joining myself. Luckily I was able to join The Labour Party online, and I’m very much looking forward to getting involved when I return to London. With any luck, I will be able to get involved in Ken’s GLA, as he was the reason I started thinking about politics.
