Stand-up comedian and actor Eddie Izzard popped into Hammersmith this week to show his support for the Labour campaign.
The key activist, dressed in his trademark women's clothing and make-up, said: “There’s a reason that I’m a supporter of the Labour party and that’s because I believe in fairness.
"I want to support working families and help young people to achieve their potential.
“I joined the Labour Party in 1995 and have been an activist since 2008 because I believe that Labour will deliver a fairer society.
“I was in Hammersmith this week because I want to encourage people to vote for Andy Slaughter and for the Labour party at the General Election next month.”
Mr Slaughter, who has served as Hammersmith MP since 2010, said: “It’s great to be here with the very talented Eddie Izzard, in Hammersmith, meeting with locals to talk about Labour’s plan for the future.
“We’ve met new supporters and we’ve met lifetime supporters like Eddie, who want to see a party in government that will make sure that families are supported and can access quality health care and housing.
“It’s fantastic to have Eddie campaigning for Labour and representing the views of the many voters who are calling for change.”
Mr Izzard threw his support behind Labour Ealing candidate Rupa Huq at a rally in the town earlier this month.
