Attack: Charlotte Church

Charlotte Church has launched a stinging attack on the Conservative Party on the eve of the general election - branding them "utterly intolerable".

The Welsh singer (29) revealed she has never before voted in a general election because she thought it was "condoning a broken system" and propping up an "illusion of democracy".

But she has decided to cast her ballot for Labour tomorrow in a bid to keep the Conservatives out of her local constituency - and David Cameron out of Number 10.

In a blog post she wrote: "This country needs change. We need to sort out our house. The people are being ripped off and exploited by multinational companies, by the media, by our own elected officials, and all this has got to stop."
