For those of you who haven't noticed, the British actor Russell Brand is leading a sort of news and politics popular insurgency in Merry Olde England.  

His main vehicle is a Youtube channel he started recently.

We are publishing an article today from the arch neo-con Spectator (UK), which scolds him for not realizing that he is being manipulated by crafty Russian propaganda wizards and their dastardly misinformation tricks.

We found an old video on his channel from July 30, but, with John McCain ranting and a raving about having to go to war over Ukraine, its really just as topical today as it was then.  

This particular Brand video has gotten 190,000 views since then, a number that exceeds The Spectator's wildest dreams, which partly explains the teeth-gnashing.  

He certainly seems to have tapped into something here...

Brand isn't everyone's cup o' tea, but the clip he came up with from Fox is truly jaw-dropping, well worth watching the whole thing...
