Susan Boyle cast her vote in the UK General Election today for the Labour Party. It is not a surprise as she lives in an area of Scotland steeped in the socialist workers struggle against the bosses.
She proudly wore a red scarf to show her allegiance to the Labour Party, whose colours are of course the red of Socialism and Communism.
However, many of her fanatical followers believe that the red scarf is their invention. They are unwilling to believe that their heroine could be a Socialist, that being the nastiest word they know in their part of the world.
Scotland is a Socialist country. The fansite have even sent a member to Susan's house to dissuade her from voting Labour it is reported. Miss Boyle went along with the fan's guidance but gave a knowing wink to our reporter after the fan had left her house.
"I'm not so silly," the singer is reported to have said, " They think I'm easy to talk round but I'll only ever vote Labour. All my family do and I will as well. My father would turn in his grave if I voted for any other political party."
Meanwhile Gordon Brown, sits at home, biting his fingernails awaiting his fate.
