Words of praise from David Mitchell

In an article
published on guardian.co.uk <http://www.guardian.co.uk/> , actor and
comedian David Mitchell
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Mitchell_%28actor%29>  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 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UK_Conservative_Party>
for manipulating the Titian <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titian>  entry
(see related story
_the_news> ).


Has anyone tried recruiting him to Wikimedia UK?
