I've been watching some old Harry Potter movies, the first time I've seen them since they were released. Its interesting to see them in the light of JK Rowlings support of the Labour Party, as in them the 'goodies' are in Red in battle with Green 'baddies'.
In the The Philosophers Stone, Harry plays Quiddich in wearing a Red robe, and defeats Slytherin in Green. Not much is seen of Hufflepuff in yellow and Ravenclaw in Blue.
In The`Goblet Of Fire, during the Quiddich World Cup Harry wears Red supporting Bulgaria against the Green of Ireland. In the tri wizard championship, he weard Red, Cedric is in Yellow, Fleus in Blue, Viktor Krum in Brown.
Now I'm not suggesting that JK sees the Green Party as the only opposition to the Labour Party, while ignoring the Tories and LibDems. And the real baddie (he who must not be named) is in Black. I just find the choice of colours interesting in the light of her £1 million donation.
