Now who's "a joke", Dave?
Well, Brand noticed, and yesterday he laid into Cameron over all the clearly bored workers who wanted to look anywhere but at the supposedly main event. At one point someone actually gets so fed up that he decides to pile off and leave his colleagues to suffer in silence as Dave drones on about how jolly wonderful everything is, now that he has single handedly transformed the UK’s economy, or maybe not.
As Cameron declared that Brand was “a joke”, his audience hardly registered a smile between them. As he asserted that “This is more important … these are real people”, Brand introduced some of the “real people” that Dave hangs out with, like, er Rebekah Brooks. He let Cameron off lightly: no mention of Creepy Uncle Rupe, or the rest of the press to which he has been so indebted these past five years.
