General Election 2015: Watch Russell Brand interview Ed Miliband on The Trews

Comedian and wannabe political philosopher Russell Brand has published his highly anticipated video interview with Labour leader Ed Miliband.

Miliband has received a lot of flack in the press for going to Brand's Shoreditch home for the interview and David Cameron mocked Miliband's decision to take part, labelling Brand "a joke".

The Tory leader said:

He says don't vote, it only encourages them. That's funny, right, it's funny. But politics and life and elections and jobs and the economy are not a joke. Russell Brand is a joke.

I haven't got time to hang out with Russell Brand. This is more important, these are real people.

Brand's interview topics ranged from the relevance of politics to getting progressive change to taxation and the banking industry.

Miliband has attracted much of the flack for his apparent adoption of a fake cockney (mockney) accent while speaking to Brand. Watch the interview below.
