Blur‘s Dave Rowntree has played down his chances of becoming an MP at the next general election.
“I’m not a betting man, but if I was, even I wouldn’t bet on me winning,” he said.
He added: “Activism is by its nature a slog, but it depends why you’re doing it… I’m seeing where the problems are in my neighbourhood and trying to sort them out.”
Rowntree, who is also training to become a barrister, added: “The best part is knocking on doors and offering help.”
“Everyone’s slipped back into what they do when the Blur creature isn’t heaving around. Law and cheese and music, I suppose,” he said.
