Tally ho! The elite's new bloodsport: Russell Brand-hunting



My piece for RT.Com OpEdge on the attacks by members of the Elite Journos Club on Russell Brand.

Fox hunting is no longer legal in Britain. But there’s a new blood sport this autumn - Russell Brand hunting.

Brand was acceptable when he was doing stand-up comedy and keeping off the politics, but now that he’s dissing the British system of parliamentary democracy and calling for radical change it’s open season on him. It’s a case of “Set the hounds on that bearded ‘semi-literate’ hippy! Tally ho!”
