Interview of the Day: Russell Brand Argues with ‘Snide’ Reporter About Rent

Comedian/activist Russell Brand was protesting on Downing Street this week with some east London residents who fear they might be evicted, when things got a little heated.

A US Investment firm called Westbrook Partners purchased their property earlier this year, and the company reportedly plans to refurbish the units and raise rent to nearly triple what it is now - effectively forcing the people out of their home.

A Channel 4 reporter asked Brand if he thought the super rich, like himself, were partially responsible by moving into the area and affecting the property market. According to the Daily Mail, he pays £5,000-a-month and lives less than a mile from the troubled estate.

Needless to say, Brand was not amused.

Russell Brand's, um, brand of comedy isn't everyone's cup of tea, but, if anything, he's pretty good at being on his toes when it comes to making light of a dull situation. As such, when Brand was testifying about the UK's drug policy to Parliament, he made quite the show out of it, which also happened to be better than his stand-up.
