‘New’ investigation against Russell Brand is deeply suspicious

Russell Brand: for those who might be wondering, yes – I do use this because it resembles a police mug shot.

One aspect of the Russell Brand affair that This Writer finds strange is the ease with which some people are saying they’ll unfollow commentators like This Site when we point out the very very obvious.

So after I pointed out that the government was using mere allegations against Brand as a reason to demand that his social media income be removed, some people turned up to tell me they were unfollowing Vox Political because of it.

Note that they weren’t unfollowing because I had voiced support for Brand – I haven’t; the allegations are under investigation and my position with regard to that is the same as any other serious news reporter – I must be impartial and allow justice to be done.

Well, I’m about to point out the very very obvious again. I wonder how many unfollowers will suddenly turn up?

The BBC is reporting that a second police force is investigating allegations of “harassment” and “stalking” against Brand, dating back to 2018 – following “new information” was brought forward two weeks ago (after the allegations in The Sunday Times and Channel 4’s Dispatches became public knowledge).

The woman making the complaint was accused by Brand of harassing him in 2017.

It seems she then made multiple complaints about him to Thames Valley Police, over a period running from 2018 to 2022.

And now this.

What is being said by Thames Valley Police, here?

That officers who investigated the allegations between 2018 and 2022 failed to take those claims seriously or do their job properly? That the complainant did not think to reveal the current allegations to investigators – over a five-year period? That they were not skilled enough to gather all the evidence that was available to them at the time?

That Brand was considered to be a VIP who was not to be touched by the police, in the same way senior politicians seem to get away with all manner of offences?

That this is nothing more than opportunism by a person with an axe to grind against Brand, motivated by the Sunday Times/Dispatches allegations?

Whatever happens, it seems clear that wrongdoing has been perpetrated – either by the police or the complainant.

Determination of whether Brand is innocent or guilty will tell us which it is.

For now, all this new claim has done is strengthen concerns that Brand is being witch-hunted.

It’s possible some people may not know about the forthcoming repeal of the Human Rights Act by the Conservative Government, to be replaced by a Bill of Rights that seems more about what you won’t be allowed to do than what will be permitted.

Here’s the first of what will hopefully become a series of infographics, illustrating the differences between what we have now, and what the Conservatives will deign to permit us.
