Russell Brand has swung his almighty voice (the one that did Ed Miliband so much good in 2015) behind Jeremy Corbyn to be Prime Minister as he is “strong and stable” (Yes, he actually said that.)
He denounced the reporting on Corbyn’s IRA-supporting past as Fake News, saying that he was “ahead of his time” in happily hanging out with terrorists.
Meanwhile, the other main offering from the Left – the not-so-nice Lib Dems – had a candidate in a seat they used to hold (and which voted 64 per cent to Leave) call 17.4 million Brexit voters “f**kwits” – that’s one way to rescue a failing campaign.
Brand says that although a Corbyn administration “won’t be perfect”, voting Labour would be “a chance for ordinary people to take back our country, it could be a revolution”. Queue here for the guillotine if you cannot abide the country’s least funny ‘comedian’.
