    Is he contactable? I am wondering what are the prospects of holding some sort of discussion meeting with the guy

    Why not suggest a Q and A article for the Socialist Standard?

    I doubt he would do so, believing it might be seen as a partisan endorsement of ourselves.

    But try we are the eccentric Impossibilists who want to abolish money and countries and approach. He might be intrigued enough to respond.

    We have been here before. In 2014 after the publication of his book Revolution. The Open Letter below caused a bit of a controversy in the Party with some mebers dismissing him as a poseur. I don’t think he is, though he certainly had been in the past.

    Yes I agree with Alan – it is worth a try contacting Brand to entice him into a response, We have nothing to lose

    Incidentally what happened about contacting that free-market libertarian in America who has criticised the SPGB?

    Russell Brand is doing his show at the Brixton Academy on Monday 30 May. Doors open at 17.00. Anyone here up for leafletting the event?

    I post things about us on celebrities’ youtube pages, FB pages, etc., but never any response. I suggested us on Ricky Gervais’ youtube, but my comment was removed in under two minutes, while all the other comments remained. Maybe one isn’t allowed to provide links there though, and that could be why.

    I tried handing Brand a copy of Socialism or your Money Back years ago. I put a note in it saying ignore the word Socialism if you want. I also made him up a mix tape of music. You’ve got to get his attention.
    The guy means well but he’s all over the place. A debate/interview/Q&A (not on Discord) between Brand and the WSM would be a great opportunity.
