Hugh Grant Calls on UK Public to 'Vote Out' Rishi Sunak in General Election

Tactical Voting Surge

Hugh Grant has launched a scathing critique of the Conservative Party, ahead of the UK general election. The renowned actor, known for his roles in films like Notting Hill, voiced strong opposition against Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s party, predicting a potentially devastating electoral outcome.

Grant’s denouncement coincided with a widespread anti-Conservative initiative spearheaded by broadcaster Carol Vorderman, gaining significant traction with a remarkable four million visits to their strategic voting platform. Vorderman tweeted, "Our website has seen nearly FOUR MILLION VIEWS already. Enter your postcode to join the movement!" rallying supporters under the banner of #TacticalVoting.

Responding to Vorderman’s initiative, Grant, a vocal critic of the Tories, endorsed the movement, declaring, “They destroyed our country. Let’s destroy them.”

The actor’s remarks came amidst frantic efforts by former Prime Minister Boris Johnson to rally Conservative support before polls opened. Johnson warned of a potential Labour “supermajority,” describing it as “the height of insanity” in a desperate plea to voters.

Meanwhile, Sunak attempted to regain momentum, emphasizing the need for just 130,000 votes to thwart Labour’s advance. His efforts were met with skepticism, as Grant and other critics branded the government’s actions as inadequate and divisive.

Hugh Grant’s disdain for the Conservative leadership dates back to the 2019 general election, when he famously tweeted moments after the exit poll forecasted a Tory landslide. “There goes the neighbourhood,” he lamented, signaling his concerns over the future under Johnson’s stewardship.

In recent years, Grant has continued to express his discontent with Conservative policies. In 2022, he lambasted then-culture secretary Nadine Dorris as “insecure nut jobs,” following proposed changes to BBC funding set for 2027.

Throughout his public criticism, Grant remains a prominent voice in British politics, using his platform to challenge and provoke debate on key issues facing the nation.
