Speaking to the Radio Times, Daniel Radcliffe said he was disillusioned by party politics:

"I'm not an affiliate of any party. I do vote - I think it's important. The first time I voted, I felt I had graduated as a full member of society. But politics is disillusioning; it's just bickering, it's exhausting.

"I think the next thing I'm going to get excited about is Eddie Izzard running for London mayor. He's really interesting, super-smart and brings a huge amount of integrity - something that we definitely don't have today."
