Damon Albarn, Banksy, Jo Brand, Bill Bailey, Billy Bragg, Tim Campbell (Apprentice winner), Anthony Gormley, Phill Jupitus, Peter Kennard, Alistair McGowan, Jonthan Porritt, Vince Power, Tony Robinson, Prunella Scales, Arthur Smith, Ralph Steadman, Emma Thompson, Vivienne Westwood, Richard Wilson and Robert Wyatt.I can't think the release of this list will attract a single vote to Livingstone.
