Actor Alan Cumming is determined to lobby during the forthcoming American Presidential election (04) - even though he is from Scotland.

The X-Men 2 star is furious with US President George W Bush's attempts to ban abortion and is adamant of thrusting his opinion into the American political arena.

Cumming tells website PAGESIX.COM, "The president doesn't tell me what to do with my reproductive organs, so why should he tell the ladies what to do with theirs.

"I am a resident here. I can't vote but I think of myself as a lobbyist."
