Press Association: JK Rowling Magics Up a Million



The Press Association are reporting that JK Rowling has donated £1 Million to Labour, with a good slap for the same old same old Conservatives as she goes:

In a statement, JK Rowling, who wrote the first of her best-selling books about boy wizard Harry Potter while an impoverished single mother, indicated that her gift was motivated by Labour's record on child poverty and Tory leader David Cameron's offer of tax breaks to married couples.

She said: "I believe that poor and vulnerable families will fare much better under the Labour Party than they would under a Cameron-led Conservative Party.

"Gordon Brown has consistently prioritised and introduced measures that will save as many children as possible from a life lacking in opportunity or choice.

"The Labour government has reversed the long-term trend in child poverty, and is one of the leading EU countries in combating child poverty."

The BBC (above) also record money from Eddie Izard - who will be entertaining the Manchester Withington massive this evening - and Steve Lazarides who is the underground overground artist Banksy's dealer. Good stuff. Free Banksy shop right here.



SURPRISE SURPRISE 09:05: Sky News viewers emails are reported to be running against the magical author's commentary.

What a load of Horse Shit! Child Poverty is on the rise under Labour and the gap between the rich and everyone else is wider than it ever was!

Oh how these good socialists lose touch once they come into riches.

Not even Rowlings creation Harry Potter himself could save the Labour Party from a General Election defeat.
