Dan Norris and Brian May, founding member of the rock band Queen, hold up a anti-fox hunting posters at the Royal British Legion on April 24, 2010 in Keynsham, England. The legendary guitarist, a passionate campaigner for animal welfare, spoke at a meeting to show his support for Dan Norris's campaign to be elected as North East Somerset MP. Dan Norris is a anti-hunt campaigner and faces an extremely close battle to win the ultra-marginal constituency against hunt-supporting Tory candidate Jacob Rees-Mogg. link
Being from Australia, this doesn't have anything to do with me really, nor do I believe in hunting. But I always get disappointed by famous people that interfere with politics and try to use their position to change peoples minds. I tend to put them in the same class as the politicians themselves and believe me that's not a good class!
I am a huge Queen fan, but this action by Brian is disappointing to say the least. He is becoming more opinionated and arrogant by the minute, one only has to read his soap box to see what he writes to those with a different point of view.

Remember that at the end of the day his opinion is more important than anyone else's, would it feel weird if your best friend campaigned for Labour?
