Russell Brand clashed with a news interviewer from Channel 4 News when the journalist demanded to know about the cost of his personal property. Earlier Russell had united with hundreds of residents of an East London estate so that they could march and demonstrate on Downing Street to protest against the threat of eviction.
Residents of the New Era estate in Hoxton, which was primitively constructed as low-cost housing for workers, state that they could face homelessness after US investment firm Westbrook Partners bought it out.
There have been 93 families that have been accounted for to face the legal ouster before Christmas. It’s social cleansing, which is pressuring the average working class people out of London.
The newsperson that was talking to Russell Brand outside Downing Street hinted that part of the housing trouble was that the super rich were purchasing property in London, and then the reporter asked Russell how much did he pay for his place.
Of course, Russell’s domicile is rented. However, Russell wasn’t there to speak about his home, he was there to protest against those that are about to lose theirs. Russell and the reporter then sparred for about 30 seconds before Garrett leaped in, angrily telling the broadcaster that at least Russell is standing up, irrespective of how large his house is, but the bigger picture really was when Garrett stated that David Cameron wasn’t even geared up to come out of his big house and help, but that at least Russell does.
Russell concluded the interview by telling the reporter that: “Snide’s like you undermine it… You’re a snide. ”
Even though Russell can be very disparaging at times, he is driven to get out there within the public. He’s not just funny man, and he’s no fool, but he’s a human being with character, a soul, and most of all he worries what happens to the people of this country.
Russell might be one of the more affluent, but he is also a leader of the extreme, he knows what he wants, and he sets out to get it. It’s not about ambition, but it’s about the drive that pushes us along, and at least he has a vision. He has a connection to the human race!
