Unlike most celebrities who bloviate on and on with bullet points that bore people to tears, Russell Brand, who is guest editing an issue of New Statesman, a political magazine, just shoots from the cuff in this interview with Newsnight’s Jeremy Paxman by sharing real thoughts and ideas mixed with his hilarious brand of humor (no pun intended). If only all people in politics were this real.
