Russell Brand on BBC Newsnight

“I don’t get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people. I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity.”

– Russell Brand

Below is an interview from BBC Newsnight with comedian Russell Brand that aired on the 23rd of October. Jeremy Paxman talks to Brand about voting, revolution and beards. The result is a very thoughtful exchange on the current state of politics.

Brand is the new guest editor of the New Statesman magazine.

Brand recently visited Insite on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
