JK Rowling - Traitor To The Needy In England And Completely Out Of Touch With New Labour... And Harry Potter Stirs Memories Of The 1980s Mole...

Millionaire authoress JK Rowling, sitting up there comfortably in the land of plenty, Scotland, has just donated one million pounds to New Labour.

She believes that New Labour has done a great job for under privileged children (they haven't really), and said:

"I believe that poor and vulnerable families will fare much better under the Labour Party than they would under a Cameron-led Conservative Party."

Like those of us scrimping and saving for prescription and hospital car parking charges in England, Ms Rowling? Or dying for want of medication available on the NHS in Scotland but being blocked by NICE in England? Or those of us paying tuition fees at the behest of MPs representing Scots constituencies?

Not very bright, are you? But then as the lovely CBBC online service points out:

JK, who is friends with Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah, said she didn't agree with some of the Conservatives' ideas.

Well neither do we. But friends with Gordon and Sarah? How cosy for you, JK Rowling, you completely uncaring baggage.

Ms Rowling's act is simply beyond our comprehension. If she really cared for under privileged children, why didn't she donate the money to appropriate charities?

We can't judge Harry Potter on his merits. As soon as we saw the character, we were reminded strongly of Adrian Mole, the brilliantly funny 1980s book and TV teen - and we simply couldn't take the Potter hype seriously.

But after this we can make one promise: not a single copy of one of Ms Rowling's works or of the DVD spin-offs will ever be brought by us. And we'll take every opportunity to do some metaphoric egg chucking.

Rowling is a traitor to every needy person in England.

From the TV Times, 1985 - Adrian Mole - created by Sue Townsend as "Nigel Mole" in 1980, published in book form in 1982 and on our tellies in 1985.

Adrian Potter?
