Tennant’s Tory Terror

(Editors note to self – don’t mix Doctor Who with politics.) However as David Tennant has already started it and I’ve apparently upset some readers with the earlier post, a rewrite is in order…

David Tennant is afraid of a Conservative government – and reckons people should vote to keep the Labour party in power, according to his recent interview in Doctor Who Magazine.

It’s quite interesting stuff, but seems to be a very centred and blinkered view as to what is going on in politics.

We won’t get tied up in party politics here – David Tennant obviously recognises that things are not well within the UK.

“Clearly, the Labour Party is not without some issues right now and I do get frustrated. They need to sort some stuff out, but they’re still a better bet than the Tories.

“I would rather have Gordon Brown than David Cameron. I would rather have a Prime Minister who is the cleverest person in the room than a Prime Minister who looks good in a suit.”

Now David is totally and 100% entitled to his views – however I am a little uncomfortable with an actor who has a massive following among children and teenagers below voting age being able to espouse either political party, especially in Doctor Who Magazine. We’re skating the edges of indoctrination here, and that cannot be a good thing.

Previously Tennant appeared in a party political broadcast for the Labour party in 2005 – thereby confirming his socialist leanings.

Unfortunately, socialism no longer equals Labour.

And that’s our last word on the matter!
