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.

The EU's vaccine export ban is potentially a genocidal policy, an act of an enemy. There are still remainers who would have us back in. The SNP & Alba after breaking up Britain would seek membership of the gangster EU.
Better together! Oppose the EU!

The EU wants to impose a vaccine export ban without saying it’s a ‘vaccine export ban’.
As usual, they play with language to deny their most unpleasant motives.

There have been numerous calls for Sturgeon to resign, on the grounds she has misled parliament. The workers of Scotland now should give the SNP it's marching orders, for attempting to create division in the British working class.
