Once upon a time I never actually liked Russell Brand, I really thought he was an illiterate prick, though I did delight in his witticism on account of. It was very much like my own. However, since seeing him a lot in the media and in question and answer sessions on T.V. I have become pretty enamored with him. I like the fact that he speaks out against the government a lot, particularly in public, and brings the people together.
Tens of thousands of people marched through central London on Saturday afternoon in a rally of austerity measures set forth by the coalition government. The demonstrators assembled before the Houses of Parliament, where they were addressed by speechmakers, including comics such as Russell Brand and Mark Steel.
An approximated 50,000 people marched from the BBC’s New Broadcasting House in central London to Westminster.
“The people of this building, the House of Commons, generally speaking do not represent us, they represent their friends in big business. It’s time for us to take back our power. ” said Brand.
“This will be a peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution and I’m very grateful to be involved in the People’s Assembly.”
“Power isn’t there, it is here, within us,” he added. “The revolution that’s required isn’t a revolution of radical ideas, but the implementation of ideas we already have.”
The gathering was testimonial to the level of fury there is at the moment. This is merely the start, with a secondary march outlined in October in conjunction with the Trades Union Congress, as well as a walkout action anticipated next month.
It is imperative for the welfare of millions of people that we cease austerity and stop this coalition government dead in its tracks before it does lasting harm to the people’s way of life and our public services. Cuts are killing people and demolishing cherished public services which have assisted generations.
The crowds listen to speeches at Parliament Square from People’s Assembly followers, including Caroline Lucas MP and columnist Owen Jones.
Who is truly accountable for the plight in this country? Is it Polish fruit pickers or the Nigerian nurses? Or is it the bankers who plunged it into financial misfortune, or the tax avoiders?. The Conservatives are using the crisis to accelerate strategies they have invariably upheld. For instance, the sell off of the NHS. They have constructed a nation in which nearly all people who are in destitution are also in employment.
This is a cry to all those millions of people in Britain who confront a poverty-stricken and dubious year as their salaries, jobs, conditions and welfare plan come under renewed onslaught by the government.
Russell Brand explained to the marchers there will be a peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution in the face of austerity in the United Kingdom. Russell Brand, whom this year begged readers of the New Statesman magazine to relinquish the prevailing political system, and explained to the multitudes assembled in London’s Parliament Square that MPs no longer represented the people. Russell Brand stripped off his T-shirt and substituted it with one carrying the message “Firefighters rescue people not bankers”, and in the run up to the march, Russell Brand spoke of the toxic swindle of austerity.
Were you present at the anti austerity demonstration in Parliament Square in London on Saturday? It was captivating, so many folks took part, with the young and old parading unitedly, with numerous people of different creeds and ethnicity uniting, helping to create a festivity ambience.
Even the Old Bill was delighting in the ambience and the atmospheric conditions, with a few of them getting into the spirit, and conversing about issues such as their shriveling pensions. British humorist and general rabble rouser Russell Brand, who is a identified free speaking faultfinder of the prevailing political system, on Saturday called upon multitudinous demonstrators to bring peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution.
Russell Brand stated: “This will be a peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution and I’m very grateful to be involved in the People’s Assembly.”
He continued, explaining that “The revolution that’s required isn’t a revolution of radical ideas, but the implementation of ideas we already have.”
Chelsea Handler states Russell Brand was a “pain in the ass” when he put in an appearance on her talk show and vowed never to ask him back. The ‘Chelsea Lately’ host maintains the British funny is the only interviewee to have been a “pain in the ass” during her seven year stint on the show, and he provoked devastation on the set by disrupting filming schedules.
Nevertheless you can’t slate the funny man off, he entertains himself with what other people do and say, that’s why he’s so comical, and people watching is the best pastime of all. Russell Brand might come across as extremely brash and blunt, however, that’s what we require, a public figure who doesn’t mind what they say and in what way they say it.
It’s about time somebody spoke out for the people of this country. For we are a nation of followers. He resembles Jesus a bit. So why shouldn’t we be his apostles…
Maybe he is the fiber that we require, and crave for, because without a public figure like him, we are an expiring nation, and it is cloudy with a huge black haze over it. He might be a pain in the ass, but he’s not anybodies fool, and he might appear offensive at times, but he’s for austerity, and at the end of the day, he is for the people, and that in itself should count for something.
