Charlotte Church regrets not voting for the Greens or Plaid Cymru
Charlotte Church has said that she regrets tactically voting for Labour and should have voted for the Green Party or Plaid Cymru.
In a passionate blog post she criticised right-wing internet trolls who tell her that Labour caused the global financial crisis:
I find this argument directed at me baffling frankly, as never have I come out in support of the Labour party. I voted for them in the general election, sure, because the Tories hold a marginal seat in the constituency I live in. I will never vote tactically again. It didn’t work and I wasted a vote that could have gone to the Greens or Plaid.
The singer, from Cardiff, has become increasingly prominent in the anti-austerity movement since the general election and has spoken at several protests and meetings alongside Green party speakers.
