Liverpool comedian Paul O’Grady has said he will move to 'a Lido in Venice' if the Tories win Thursday's general election.
The TV presenter fro Birkenhead, who's supporting Labour in the election, threatened to leave the country during a rally for the party in London yesterday saying:
'I cannot live under this Conservative...this coalition anymore.'
He also complained about the treatment of working class people and the state of hospitals in the country.

A new opinion poll suggests Conservative Minister Esther McVey is on course to be out of a job next Thursday.
A Lord Ashcroft poll in Wirral West shows the Conservative candidate, who's been an MP since 2010, is three points behind Labour's Margaret Greenwood.
But the poll does show Ms McVey has closed the gap on the Labour candidate since the last research in March from five points, putting Labour's narrow lead within the margin of error.
"After more than a year and nearly a quarter of a million telephone interviews, we have reached the final round of my general election constituency polling," said Lord Ashcroft.
"There is...better news for Esther McVey in Wirral West, where Labour’s lead is down from five to three points since last month. This small narrowing of the gap comes as both main parties have increased their vote share, again at the expense of UKIP.
"The results show that there can be late movement on the battleground as the election approaches and voters’ minds are concentrated, and there is still room for more in the final week. That is why even these polls remain snapshots, not predictions."
