Brand Floors Paxman

Stand up comic and self professed revolutionary Russell Brand was interviewed by NUJ member and questionmaster Jeremy Paxman on Newsnight. The interview has attracted millions of YouTube viewers and is a hot topic of debate amongst young people.

Brand has recently been a guest editor on the New Statesman.

He argues passionately that the Parliamentary system supports only the corporations and profit and neglects the interests of 99 per cent of the population.

Paxman’s only retort is to attempt to dismiss the views of anyone like Brand who has never voted. Brand demolishes this narrow paradigm in which parliamentary elections are seen as the be all and end all of ‘politics’ brilliantly. In the process he actually becomes the first person to render the usually razor sharp Paxman close to speechless. The millionaire presenter can’t cope with the ebullience, logic and new dynamic of the millionaire entertainer still close to his roots in vandalised communities.

Good job boys, a classic exchange in the daily debate between liberal and socialist democracy. Brand won for the majority.

Azov battalion surrender at the Azovstal steelworks; a symbolic defeat for Ukraine. US, UK & some EU governments still want to fight the war to the last Ukrainian; they continue warmongering and sending weaponry to Ukraine.

#Russia says it has no problem with #Sweden or #Finland, hence no problem with it joining #NATO. It will however monitor its deployment of troops and weaponry, and take action appropriate to the threats.
As in Britain it's up to the people to say #No2NATO.
