Comic Mark Thomas backing Green Party

Green Party leader Steven Agnew has a smile on his face after comedian Mark Thomas backed his party for the Assembly election.

The well-known human rights activist was performing his Extreme Ramblings show at the Empire Music Hall, Belfast, this week when he said: “If you want a party that is actually socially responsible... then vote for the Green Party — that is why I am supporting them.”

North Down Assembly candidate Mr Agnew said he was “delighted” by the endorsement.
