World’s smartest man is voting Labour on Thursday

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Hawking – both supporting Labour.

No, I don’t mean Ricky Gervais (although he is voting Labour).

Ricky made his feelings clear in a rather nicely understated tweet, as follows:

How true. Those considering tactical voting in some constituencies should take note – especially as it is hope that many people who have not voted in recent elections will turn out, meaning you can’t judge what will happen based on previous results.

The big endorsement has come from world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking:

In the Independent article, Professor Hawking stated: “I’m voting Labour because another five years of Conservative government would be a disaster for the NHS, the police and other public services.”

Apparently he also said it in the Mirror. He’s a man who chooses his words carefully.

The physicist’s decision has been welcomed:

The same Twitter user posted this witty observation:

A third celebrity endorsement for Labour – in contrast to those of Brits Gervais and Hawking, came from actor Mark Ruffalo:

Mr Ruffalo has enjoyed considerable success for his portrayal of fictional physicist Bruce Banner, the alter-ego of The Incredible Hulk. His comment prompted Labour grandee John Prescott to tweet:

What an attractive thought.

Let’s all smash the Tories on Thursday.

By voting Labour.

    I am more interested in hearing some of those right wingers have decided to come back into the fold and start working again for the Labour party. Clearly there were some good thinkers and talkers in that Group who hopefully, if they survive, can make a contribution to the Party. After all JC had to endure the Blairs all those years without withdrawing his services completely.
