Colin Firth Drops Lib Dems
The Lib Dem's biggest celebrity supporter has ended his support for the party because he is "profoundly disillusioned" by their stance on tuition fees.
The actor, who played Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice and is nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance as George VI in The King's Speech, joined Clegg on the election trail in May. However, asked at the Dubai Film Festival if he continued to back the Lib Dems, Firth replied "I'm without an affiliation now."
