Professor Stephen Hawking has come out in support of the Labour party, saying:
‘I’m voting Labour because another five years of Conservative government would be a disaster for the NHS, the police and other public services’.
These comments came after a meeting with Cambridge Labour candidate Daniel Zeichner, who Professor Hawking had previously backed in the 2015 general election.
‘I was delighted to meet Professor Hawking again and receive his support for my re-election and a Labour government’, said Mr. Zeichner.
Mr. Hawking had previously expressed reservations about Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, saying:
‘I regard Corbyn as a disaster. His heart is in the right place and many of his policies are sound, but he has allowed himself to be portrayed as a left wing extremist’.
