Russell Brand has conquered the comedy stage, the television and the silver screen, but now it looks like he’s launching his own political platform.

The funnyman was invited onto BBC Newsnight to take on the vociferous Jeremy Paxman, as they discuss his recent guest editorship of the New Statesman.
