|Stars Trek Towards Elections|
- Patrick Stewart and Joan Collins wheeled out
JEAN-LUC PICARD will boldly go into one of his toughest battles today when he starts the fight against voter apathy in the run-up to next month's elections.
Along with Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott Picard, aka actor Patrick Stewart, helms a publicity event in central London aimed to publicise the European and local elections on the 10th of June.
Today also marks the first day of postal voting for some districts including London. Postal voting is held up as a way of increasing the turn out, which has fallen steadily for both local and European votes in recent years. Some districts are even operating a 100 per cent postal election.
Meanwhile, the anti-EC United Kingdom Independence Party is to unveil its latest star recruit in the form of Joan Collins, to add to Robert Kilroy-Silk, Sir Patrick Moore and Edward Fox.
