Muse to take over hometown council for one day?

Posted by Lily on 03 Aug 2013 • Filed in Miscellaneous

Muse could branch out into politics by taking over the local council in their hometown of Teignmouth for one day, according to reports.

The Sun says that the band have held talks about the possibility of running the council for 24 hours in an attempt to engage younger voters in the region and help them take a greater interest in local politics.

Jeremy Christophers, who is the leader of Teignbridge District Council, said: “We’re still in talks to get things sorted. It’s vital for the council to engage with the younger generation.” He also claimed that the political themes of the band’s most recent album, The 2nd Law, made them suitable candidates for the role. “Muse have been busy on tour promoting their album The 2nd Law,” he said. “The album has songs about global warming and sustainable living, which are important issues.”

Christophers first invited Muse to take over the running of the council for a day in July last year. Speaking on the same day that all three members of the band had been chosen to carry the Olympic torch their their hometown, he said: “We had Muse here today. They’re the biggest rock band on the planet. I’ve invited Matt Bellamy and the band to come in and run the council for the day.”

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
