Comedian Eddie Izzard has backed Labour candidate Nick Grant to become the next MP for Twickenham.
Nick said: "It was great to meet Eddie and receive his support for the campaign. The role of the Lib Dems in the Coalition has helped to create a local surge in support for Labour, and we're looking forward to an exciting election."
Eddie said: “I believe in fairness, I believe in wealth creation and a safety net. I joined the Labour Party in 1995 and I've been an activist since 2008 because I believe you get a fairer society under Labour.
"I've known what it is to struggle but I've done lots of things in my life and I'm an entrepreneur. I believe everyone should have that chance and I want to see a fair and equal society and that's why I'm backing the Labour Party.”
