Who cares?

This Writer gets the impression that this letter – and the news story it has generated – was created purely to influence the weak-minded.

Perhaps the idea was to combat ignorant claims that a ‘Remain’ vote is a vote in support of David Cameron; now you can say it’s a vote in support of Benedict Cumberbatch or Danny Boyle or Paloma Faith instead.

But it shouldn’t matter who supports which side. Why would anybody in their right mind let that influence their decision?

This Writer hopes Vox Political readers will consider the issues, not the personalities supporting them, when they come to cast their votes.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Paloma Faith are among more than 250 of Britain’s best-known actors, artists, musicians and writers warning that if Britain were to leave the European Union it would become “an outsider shouting from the wings”.
