Intermission: Brand new world…

25 Oct

I’m not in the habit of doing short posts attached to viral videos, on the basis that if it’s that good, you’ve probably seen it already. 

But as the clip in question involves Russell Brand, someone I’ve become increasingly fond of over recent years – and who I have featured in a previous post –  (surely some sort of post-ironic national treasure status can’t be far away) and he does such a sterling job of disarming the BBC’s resident news rottweiler, Jeremy Paxman, I could hardly resist posting this interview.

For those of you unfamiliar with Mr Paxman, he is the BBC’s most notorious politician-savager, although here he appears in slightly more relaxed mode. Perhaps it’s the effect of the cuddly beard.

And if you don’t know who Russell is by now,….. how did you manage to find the Internet today?

Apart from anything else, Mr Brand talks a lot of sense and very nicely articulates what a lot of people think about the state of our current political system.

Watch and learn (and laugh)

    Okay, I just want you to know that I watched this video TWICE, Dale, and I agree with everything Russell Brand said because it’s the same way here in the U.S.

    Amen, Russell!!!!!

      Wasn’t sure how well known he is over there. I know he did have his own show for a while but if people aren’t familiar with him, spread the word Ron.
