Harry Potter joins the Labour party

Ok, maybe not, but in the real world, JK Rowling has actually donated one million pounds to the Labour party, saying that:

“The Labour government has reversed the long-term trend in child poverty, and is one of the leading EU countries in combating child poverty,” said the nation’s richest author, whose fortune was recently estimated at 560 million pounds.

“David Cameron’s promise of tax perks for the married, on the other hand, is reminiscent of the Conservative government I experienced as a lone parent.

“It sends the message that the Conservatives still believe a childless, dual-income, but married couple is more deserving of a financial pat on the head than those struggling, as I once was, to keep their families afloat in difficult times.”

There’s more here.

So, there you have it. Vote Labour. Hermione Granger said so and when is she ever wrong?!
