Yeah, me too. Paxman is taking a lot of deserved heat for this, but for all his condescension, he does not seem to genuinely disapprove of Brand on a personal level. I seem to remember he's interviewed Brand on a previous occasion.
I'm loving Russell Brand's brand (pun intended) of social criticism. His wide-eyed I-don't-give-a-fuck-ness is pretty difficult to argue against, as Paxman found out.
It's a credit to New Statesman they took him on.

'Conservatism appeals to our self-interest' - Mehdi quotes from Brand's NS Revolution essay
"I don't agree with the labels. I recognise in myself my capacity for lustfulness, selfishness. I would prefer a culture that did not reward the most negative aspects of human nature.
Are Tories evil? "I don't think tories are evil, I think we have an evil system, and I don't want to advance it.
"But the idea of evil is trite. You can be selfish, i can be selfish, but we don't want a culture that rewards selfishness."
