STAND-UP comedian Eddie Izzard joined the Labour campaign trail in parts of North Wales last week.

On November 27, after visiting Clwyd South, Wrexham and Aberconwy, Mr Izzard paid a visit to the Varsity Sports Bar in Bangor.

It was there, he showed his support for Arfon Labour candidate Steffie Williams Roberts and met local Labour supporters.

Mr Izzard, 57, has been a vocal supporter of the Labour Party since becoming an activist in 2008 and campaigned for Britain to remain in the European Union in 2016.

Speaking in Rhyl, Mr Izzard voiced his full backing of a Jeremy Corbyn government “because it represents the many and not the few”.

He also had scathing criticism for Prime Minister Boris Johnson following claims the NHS could be tabled in a post-Brexit UK-US trade deal.

Mr Izzard added: "The NHS is the biggest issue of this general election. Boris Johnson is denying it but he wants to sell the NHS off to the United States.

“The National Health Service was created in Wales by Aneurin Bevan [the UK Government’s Minister for Health in 1948] and it needs to be in Labour’s hands.”

Arfon's Labour candidate Steffie Williams Roberts added: "It was a pleasure to be joined by Christina Rees and Eddie Izzard today. It was amazing talking Brexit, Austerity, and the importance of real change here in Arfon."
