He was once under the spell of Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats – but Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has distanced himself from the party after the controversy about university tuition fees. Daniel, 21, helped drum up support among his young fans by publicly backing the Lib Dems during the Election and he continued to give his endorsement after the Coalition was formed.
He said of Nick Clegg in September: ‘He comes from absolutely the right place in terms of what his values are.’
But now Daniel is said to be ‘underwhelmed’ by the party after the U-turn over fees and is keen to play down his association with them.
A source inside the party said: ‘Daniel does not in any way support the violence of the rioters, but to say he is underwhelmed by his party is an understatement. Like millions of others he was under the impression that the Liberal Democrats had no plans to increase the cost of studying.
A few recent candids have been added.
