    What do you expect them to say when someone sticks a mic under their nose and asks for a comment? 'Doesn't matter to me'? You could loose an election on the number alienated Michael Jackson fans.

    Seems to be that they're happier to comment on Jackson than anything that might be a bit tricky.

    And that's another thing - why are the press trying to get politicians to comment on dead pop stars? :roll:

    BTW - haven't they both claimed to be Arctic Monkeys fans at some point?

    I'd be more inclined to vote for the politician who said, "Michael Jaskson, who's he then?"
