Eddie Izzard joins election campaign

[from edp24.co.uk]

Comedian and marathon-running charity fundraiser Eddie Izzard joined the General Election campaign in Norfolk and Suffolk today.

Mr Izzard, who recently ran 43 marathons in 51 days to raise money for Sport Relief, visited Lowestoft this morning to meet Waveney Labour candidate Bob Blizzard.

He said: “It’s great to be here supporting Bob. We’ve almost got the same name, so it seemed only right that I support his campaign. I’ve always supported the Labour party and I firmly believe in our vision for the future of this country.”

Mr Blizzard said: “It’s fabulous to have Eddie here. The idea of Blizzard meeting Izzard will really set my campaign alight.”

After spending time in Lowestoft, Mr Izzard travelled to Norwich to meet Norwich South candidate Charles Clarke and Norwich North candidate John Cook.

The comic learnt about the city’s bid to become the UK’s first Capital of Culture in 2013 and said that if successful it would help to bring more people to the Eastern city.
