article imageRussell Brand: UK PM David Cameron a 'filthy, dirty, posh w***er'

By Mathew Wace Peck     Nov 15, 2013 in Politics
Russell Brand, in a new interview, has criticised the British government for being, among more colourful things, "mean and tight" and not caring about the most vulnerable.
Brand appeared on the Channel 4 show, Alan Carr Chatty Man, where he spoke at length about the so-called austerity measures being implemented by the incumbent Tory government led by David Cameron.
"I think if your job is to look after the country and you don’t care about the people who need it most, you’re out of order, and you’re a filthy, dirty, posh w***er," Brand told the show's host, Alan Carr.
As British Prime Minister, Cameron recently gave a speech in which he emphasised his belief in austerity. Ironically, as highlighted by the Independent, he did so to a group of rich people, surrounded by gold-embellished furniture.
Pointing this out and referring to the backgrounds of the likes of Cameron and his Cabinet colleague, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, Brand told Carr that it proved how out of touch they were.
"It’s alright if you go to Eton and then you’re in the House of Parliament. It’s alright for them to say, 'Oh don’t worry about gay rights, don’t worry about poor people,'" he said, "because it’s not part of their lives, but it’s part of our lives."
Russell Brand is a stand-up comedian and actor by profession. Last month, to promote his guest-editorship of the New Statesman, Brand gave a well-received interview to BBC Newsnight 's Jeremy Paxman, which can be seen in its entirety elsewhere on Digital Journal.
