Legendary illustrator and artist Alan Moore is foregoing his usual anarchism in favour of directing his legions of fans to stand up against right wing parties in the UK by supporting Labour. I largely agree with the man that most politicians are in it for themselves, regardless, but I am the sort of person who tries to change the system from within rather than just taking my ball and heading home. Glad to see another disheveled warrior take to the battlefield.
Moore, author of Watchmen and V for Vendetta, said that the last time he voted was more than 40 years ago, because he was “convinced that leaders are mostly of benefit to no one save themselves”. But these are unprecedented times, he said, and a victory for the Conservative party in December’s general election would leave Britain without “a culture, a society, or an environment in which we have the luxury of even imagining alternatives”.
