Russell Brand endorses Labour (except in Scotland and Brighton)

By Jon Stone

Russell Brand has called on people to vote Labour to keep the Tories out - unless they live in Brighton or Scotland.

In a new video the radical comedian released more footage of his interview with Labour leader Ed Miliband, which had been held back from the original release.

He said he agreed with a lot of what Mr Miliband said, and told his followers:

"My view is this: If you're Scottish you don't need an English person telling you what to do, you know what to do. If you live in Brighton, I think it would be a travesty if we lost the voice of Caroline Lucas in Westminster out of government in this country. But anywhere else? You've gotta vote Labour, you've got to get the Conservative party out of this country."
