The kiss of death? Russell Brand Returns To Politics To Endorse Jeremy Corbyn

Comedian, actor and political campaigner who does not want to be involved with “voting type stuff” anymore, Russell Brand, has given Labour leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn the potential kiss of death: his endorsement.

In the latest episode of “The Trews” – the true news – onhis YouTube channel, the Arthur star compared the Islington North MP and former Labour Prime Minister, Tony Blair, sarcastically claiming that Corbyn’s policies of being anti-austerity, anti-war and opposing benefit caps made him an “absolute lunatic,” joking that what Britain really needed was an elder statesman who would “run a proper government with a nice accent” – a shot at Mr. Blair.

    Not sure about the kiss of death, Russell has a big following, I visualise more youth on the band wagon…….All hail the power of the apathy voters !

    I have a mate who has not voted for a long time,and he is very enthusiastic about Jeremy.If Corbyn can make the non-voters vote, then he is on to a winner. All those who have voter apathy may become political, or at least a fair number. Even Blair did not do that.

    A lot of people in my area, who are known to me as non-voters, are listening and seem enthusiastic about Jeremy.

    I don’t think he is too old either. He seems to have a lot of energy to me.

    His endorsement of Jim Murphy in Glasgow would certainly back up the “kiss of death” theory.

      Really? Oh dear.
      Personally, I do like Russell Brand and think he has some really good ideas – although their time may not have come just yet, and won’t unless people of good faith get involved and move politics in the right direction.
