Russell Brand is just the same as Labour, fake & insincere

Russell Brand is a fake, anyone with half a brain can see through his act.

Tim Stanley at The Telegraph sums him up quite well:

Look, Brand isn’t a bad or untalented person. But he’s not the Messiah, either. He condemns the elites and big money but he’s only where he is because TV producers have promoted him to that position. Proof that he enjoys an absurd amount of cultural capital was the fact that this edition of BBC Question Time was followed by an ad for his new documentary about drug rehabilitation on BBC3. And while he claims to be on the side of ordinary people (and, hey, is indeed authentically working-class and from the south east), his schtick goes down best with metropolitan liberals, Green Party activists and students. In fact, Russell Brand epitomises everything that went wrong for the Left. It still romantically sees itself as the voice of the folks but it’s utterly divorced from their concerns and culture. In Kent, we don’t do New Age religion, we don’t do long hair, we don’t do banker bashing and we don’t do one-world-let’s-give-away-free-money stuff. Again, it’s not that we’re all Ukippers. It’s just that we prefer a bit of experience and reason.

Which is also pretty much the same for the Labour party.

They concentrate on the wrong people.

Middle NZ don’t like bludgers, and they don’t care about poor people who don’t try.

Until Labour starts respecting hard working (Labouring) Kiwi workers and business owners they will continue to languish.

Labour acolytes and sycophants are already proclaiming Andrew Little as the latest messiah for Labour, and basing their judgement on just a few speeches and some ranting in parliament 3 whole years before the next election.

Even Fran O’Sullivan, moving on from denying things which can easily be proved by some emails, to drinking the Little brand of Kool-aid.

    Russell Brand should be registered as an idiot.

    Russel Brand is a lot like a lottery ticket, all hope and no substance. He is becoming much more cringe-worthy of late, cleverly stating stupid ideas.

  • caochladh

    Brand’s super sized ego has been constantly massaged by those who are using him for their own tawdry purpose and the fool can’t or won’t see it. Either way, he will crash and burn and hopefully become the pariah he deserves to be.

    Never trust a man who straightens his chest hair (

  • The parallel is uncanny. He blabbers on about a bunch of nonsense and idiots (lefties) go, ‘He’s so right!’ Whereas the rest of us go, ‘What the **** is he on about? Why is this loser even on telly?’ Andy ‘Who’ Little is the same. To the believers, he’s the messiah. And to everyone else, he’s ‘Who’…cares?

      A few short months ago Cunliffe was the great messiah that would lead the hard left to the promised land.

      • Captain Darling

        But he wasn’t the TRUE messiah, that mantle belongs to Little Andy.

  • Pete

    I watched the drug addled idiot in an interview once, where he tried to justify his wealth by saying he “tricked” all the film directors and producers in Hollywood, he tricked them into paying him all that money….no doubt so he could go on to be a working class hero. The guy is as fake as they come, and I am pretty sure, one day soon, all his past, his bitterness and addictions will all catch up with him in a most spectacular and public way.

    Empty vessels really do make the most noise…

    Russell Brand has my vote for Man of the Year. A brilliant individual. Close behind in 2nd place is John Key. 3rd place Barack Obama.

    Notable bottom dwellers are – David Cunlife, Kim DotCom, Laila Harre, Chris Cairns, and anyone who voted Greens, Act, NZ First, or Conservative Party.
