Watch: Russell Brand trespasses on Lord Rothermere's property
Text settings

Earlier this year Mr S revealed that Russell Brand had made an unwelcome visit to the home of Lord Rothermere, the proprietor of the Daily Mail newspaper group, as part of filming for his new documentary The Emperor's New Clothes.

Now new footage has been made public ahead of the film's release. In the clip he is shown turning up at Lord Rothermere's home only to find that he is not in. Brand then jumps the fence, climbs scaffolding and puts a poster on the property criticising Lord Rothermere's non-dom status.

Of course, if Ed Miliband wins the election Lord Rothermere's non-domicile tax status could cease to exist. Not that the comedian will be bothering to vote for this policy in the general election.

'I am not voting out of absolute indifference and weariness and exhaustion from the lies, treachery and deceit of the political class that has been going on for generations,' the comedian explained previously.
