Will Young comes out … for STV

From today’s Sunday Telegraph:

‘I have voted, yes, but I’m not going to tell you who for,’ he smiles. ‘I’m not Conservative or Labour, I don’t have a political leaning, I’m a tactical voter. … I’d like a single transferable vote, because I think it would make more sense, particularly for the Lib Dems because they get such a big vote and a tiny percentage of the House of Commons.’

This may be the first time in recorded history that the words ‘single transferable vote’ have emanated freely from the mouth of a mainstream pop star. We’re a long way, indeed, from the world of Rick Astley.

Quick, send that chap a membership form.

    Will Young a Lib Dem – I knew it!

    Will Young was in the same year at Exeter Univeristy as a couple of my friends, and I vaguely recall them saying he read Politics.

  • He did read Politics

  • So a bit keener than Nick Clegg who according to lib dems news says

    “What about proportional representation? Nice idea but not now: voters aren’t interested.”

    Not a quote of what Nick said, but how it was reported. Hardly the great communicator

  • Well it’s going in my Focus.

  • Perhaps he should be persuaded to re-record that old Len Barry song, the first lines of which are:

    “One, two, three,
    That’s how elementary
    It’s gonna be…..”

    Could we kill two birds with one stone and make Will Young leader
