Russell Brand ‘open-minded’ to possibility George Bush was behind 9/11

Russell Brand has said he is ‘open-minded’ to the possibility George Bush may have been behind the September 11 attacks in a BBC Newsnight interview.

In a passionate interview with Evan Davis, the comedian attacked ‘corporate hegemony’ and the political class, as well as the mainstream media for ‘ignoring the struggles of ordinary people’.

And after being queried by Davis on a reference to the destruction of the Twin Towers resembling a ‘controlled demolition’ in Brand’s new book Revolution, the comedian said he was ‘open-minded’ to the possibility that the US government played a role in the attacks.

‘I think it’s interesting that at this time where we have so little trust in our political figures, where ordinary people have so little trust in their media… we have to remain open-minded to any possibility,’ he said.

Brand was, however, quick to clarify that he didn’t want to talk about ‘daft’ conspiracy theories, though he said the relationship between the Bush family and the Bin Laden family was ‘interesting’, as was the way tragic events were ‘used to enforce further controls’ on the population.

In the 15-minute clip, Brand went on to criticise the BBC’s coverage of the Scottish Referendum, saying they influenced the ‘No’ vote, and rejected the suggestion that he should stand in next year’s election.

‘My energies and efforts are best spent supporting people who are working very hard and doing great work in important issues like housing and having some control over their own work,’ he said.
