Great to see Russell Brand getting fired up like this on Newsnight, finally showing his anger at Jeremy Paxman’s tedious incomprehension that Brand’s refusal to vote for any of the candidates in a corrupt political system might actually be both a more rational and a more ethical act than Paxman’s choice over decades to conspire in meaningless political theatre. Worth watching till the final minute, when Brand really lets rip on Paxman.
