Comedian Russell Brand releases 'Milibrand' trailer

A trailer for Russell Brand's interview with Labour leader Ed Miliband has been released today.

The clip, described as 'Milibrand', on Brand's 'The Trews' YouTube channel shows the comedian quizzing the Labour leader on the level of corporate taxes.

"Of course people share your outrage about companies that don't pay their taxes and it can be dealt with," Miliband said. "But you've got to have a government that's willing to say 'there's something wrong with this'".

The interview is thought to have been filmed yesterday after a fuzzy picture of Miliband leaving Brand's east London home emerged on Twitter at around 10pm.
