Russell Brand urges you to vote Labour

by Newsdesk.

Part two of the Brand – Miliband interview is now out (you can see part one here). Complete with a previously un-released part of the previous interview (though it must be said that Ed struggles to get a word in through much of it), it includes an appeal by Brand for everyone to vote Labour – […]

Why Brand-ing Miliband was the right move

by Phil Burton-Cartledge.

A Frost/Nixon for our age? No, but the media reaction to Russell Brand’s encounter with Ed Miliband is out of all proportion to what was said.

But there was something about Brand that made him stand out even in those days. […]

Russell Brand and Revolution

by Phil Burton-Cartledge.

“There is going to be a revolution, it is totally going to happen.” So said Russell Brand in his widely-celebrated Newsnight interview with Paxo. It would be tempting to view this as the naive aspiration of a dilettante celebrity taking five minutes out from his lavish lifestyle for a political dabble. But this would be a grievous […]

Not the messiah

by Lucy Reese.

Yesterday was my birthday, and my very kind friend Lilah gave me one of the best birthday presents ever – surprise tickets to see the one and only Russell Brand. If I was being mean, I would say Russell was out on the prowl looking for sex – he’s been quite open about this tendency […]
