Russell Brand Has Endorsed Corbyn – And the Tories Won’t Be Worried

Owen Jones will no doubt be firing off a column about how this is a game-changer as we speak: Russell Brand has endorsed Corbyn. Russ says he agrees with Jez on the IRA:

“Even the more ‘controversial’ stuff in his search history doesn’t hold up to scrutiny – meeting with the IRA; he wasn’t at a barn dance in Londonderry downing Guinness in a balaclava, he was perspicaciously acknowledging the necessity for negotiation in pursuit of a peaceful solution. Which is what happened, years later. You could say that he was ahead of his time. Or a leader.”

Well it didn’t work for Ed…

Russell Brand Has Given Up, And Who Cares?

ed brand

Russell Brand has brought his YouTube series “The Trewsto an end and is taking a break from social media because he is “sick of becoming the story“. Guido has put together a montage of him talking to the greatest minds of the age… 

We’ll miss you Russell…

Anti-Austerity Protesters Turn on Russell Brand

Not quite the reception Russell Brand was hoping for in the VIP area at yesterday’s anti-austerity protest:

“F**k Russell Brand… He should not be on the stage here… You have no f**king place here, you’re disgusting…”

“You’re a turncoat, Brand… sell us a book on revolution and then tell us to vote Labour… f**k off back to Miliband you tw*t.”

The People’s Turncoat…

Russell Brand Grasps Democracy

Russell Brand finally grasps democracy…

“The only conclusion I can draw from this is…a lot of people want the Conservatives in power, because they voted for them”

Russell Brand Backs Labour and SNP

“My view is this. If you’re Scottish, you don’t need an English person telling you what to do. You know what you’re gonna be doing. If you’re in Brighton, I think it would be a travesty if we lost the voice of Caroline Lucas in Westminster. But anywhere else, you’ve gotta vote Labour… on May 7th, vote Labour.”

Leaving Labour types struggling to work out whether an endorsement of a Labour-SNP-Green government is a good or bad thing.

Not quite the message Ed was looking for…

Mockney Miliband

Miliband responds to interview critics: “What a load of old pony, guvnor!”

Russell Brand on Miliband

These days he has him round for tea, but Russell Brand was scathing about Ed Miliband when speaking to Mehdi Hasan just eighteen months ago:

MH: “Ed Miliband?”

RB: “Pfft. We could do better. We deserve better.”

And again in this Trews episode:

“Miliband’s in trouble. Because he doesn’t have the skillset, I think, required in contemporary politics.”

He also once called Ed Balls a “clicky wristed snidey c**t”. Even a stopped clock etc…

Cameron: “Russell Brand is a Joke”

“Russell Brand is a joke. Ed Miliband, to hang out with Russell Brand. He’s a joke.”

At last a politician tough enough to stand up to Russell Brand…

Perhaps Ed wants advice on how to handle #MiliFandom, ideological guidance, or more likely he just wants to reach out to Russell Brand’s confused followers. Last night this picture of him leaving Brand’s lair emerged on TwitterExpect to see Ed Miliband interviewed by Russell Brand on his YouTube channel soon…

WATCH: Ed Balls Hits Back at “Pound Shop Ben Elton” Brand

In a rare moment of clarity, Russell Brand called Ed Balls ‘clicky-wristed snidey c***’ on the Big Fat Quiz of the Year. The Shadow Chancellor clearly did not enjoy having to respond on the BBC this afternoon:

Brand is “a pound shop Ben Elton”, apparently. Errr, catchy…
