Blackadder and Time Team star Tony Robinson visited Welwyn Garden City earlier this week to show his support for Labour.

Tony joined the party's Welwyn Hatfield parliamentary candidate, Andrew Lewin, on Tuesday (July 2), in a final push for votes in the constituency.

"Labour has changed. I know it, you know it," he told voters.

"If you vote Labour on Thursday, we can stop the chaos, turn the page and start to rebuild.

"I’m proud to be voting Labour on Thursday, I urge everyone to do the same."

Tony has had Labour ties since the days of Tony Blair's government, having been a member of the national executive committee from 2000 to 2004.

Mr Lewin described the actor and author as a "legend of Labour", and echoed his message to vote for the party.

"It’s brilliant to have Tony Robinson in Welwyn Garden City, in the week of the election," he said.

"Tony is a legend of the Labour party, he knows a changed Labour party when he sees one. 

"At stake on Thursday is how to make Britain’s economy stronger, rebuild our public services, and make our streets and communities safe again.

"Change will only come if you vote Labour on July 4."

Mr Lewin will be running against Conservative candidate Grant Shapps, Liberal Democrat John Munro, Sarah Butcher from the Green Party and Jack Aaron of Reform UK.
