Vannessa Redgrave and brother Corin form a political party devoted to pulling British troops out of Iraq

Great. Just when American celebrities have slinked back into their Beverly Hills holes, the British ones come out of the woodwork:
"I think it's a healthy sign," [Corin Redgrave] said by telephone from the northern city of Newcastle. "If artists, actors, musicians and writers just felt they ought to be celebrities and shut up, then the world would be a pretty awful place to be."

For whom?
Corin says he was discriminated against as an actor in the 1970s and 1980s
because of his Marxist affiliations, while his father, Michael, was temporarily
blacklisted by the British Broadcasting Corporation for his communist
sympathies.

Uh oh. I think I'm starting to tear up. Like there should be a law requiring people to work with freedom-hating Marxists?
