Russell Edward Brand was born in Orsett Hospital in Grays, Essex, England. He is the only child of photographer Ronald Henry Brand and Barbara Elizabeth Nichols. Brand’s parents divorced when he was six months old, and he was raised by his mother. He has described his childhood as isolated and lonely. When he was seven, a tutor sexually abused him. When Brand was eight, his mother contracted uterine cancer and then breast cancer one year later. While she underwent treatment, Brand lived with relatives. When he was 14, he suffered from bulimia nervosa. When he was 16, he left home because of disagreements with his ill mother’s live-in partner. Brand then started to use illegal drugs such as cannabis, amphetamines, LSD, and ecstasy.

Russell Brand is put on the TV screens to placate the ones already ‘awake’, and to put you back to sleep in the belief that this is some kind of victory. It’s isn’t – it is showbiz being used as a social engineering tool yet again.
The Jimmy Savile horror show is the ultimate weapon we have in our arsenal which we can wake people up with. The BBC knows this, and so do their owners and personal friends of Jimmy Savile, the Royal Family. So they throw you a ‘truth bone’ in the form of celebrity Platitude Prosac Performance in the guise of Russell Brand talking about ‘revolution’ when in reality it’s about distraction.
Do not be bought off with this rubbish. Keep the Jimmy Savile anger raging – it is the key to bringing the whole pyramid down.
Although the segment is being marketed as Paxman versus Brand it should be really titled: THE BBC VERSUS YOU (again…).
