Words of praise from David Mitchell 

In an article published on guardian.co.uk , actor and comedian David Mitchell 
praised Wikipedia as being "brilliant." Mitchell defended Wikipedia against 
criticisms of inaccuracy, writing "readers should always question the veracity 
of what they read and the motives of whoever wrote it, and in the internet age 
more than ever.... And if Wikipedia, while being very informative in most 
cases, teaches a few lessons about questioning sources, then that's all to the 
good." Mitchell also criticized the UK Conservative Party for manipulating the 
Titian entry (see related story ). 

Has anyone tried recruiting him to Wikimedia UK?
