ALAN Davies, the Jonathan Creek and QI star, opened Labour’s new offices on Saturday with a gung-ho speech swinging behind parliamentary candidate Tulip Siddiq’s campaign to hold Hampstead and Kilburn. He said the party had found someone to fill Glenda Jackson’s “big shoes”. But is the comedian completely convinced by everyone in the Labour team and what they are bringing to the table ahead of the May 8 election?
Just four days before cutting the big red ribbon in Kilburn High Road, Davies said, while discussing his surprise admiration for Top Gear controversy-bot Jeremy Clarkson in an interview with the Radio Times: “Do you want everybody to be like Ed Miliband, to be ‘on message’ and PC? No, you don’t.”
