Russell Brand Says He’ll Move To Syria If Someone Buys Him A First Class Ticket, Online Fundraising Starts Immediately

40 year old controversial comedian and Katy Perry’s ex-husband, Russell Brand has said he has a ‘good mind’ to go to Syria, but only if he can fly first class.

The self-styled revolutionary, 40, made the comment in a string of sick jokes about the Tunisian beach massacre, hours after denouncing Friday’s minute of silence in the UK as ‘total bulls***’.

Brand raged:

“There is no point in having a minute’s silence. It’s a minute of bull****. If you respect those people then demand that your government stops selling arms to countries on its own human rights abuse list.”

He sparked outrage earlier in the week by blaming Seifeddine Rezgui’s (The Tunisian beach murderer) murderous rampage on the UK Government and dismissing the tribute to the 38 victims as an ’empty, hollow gesture’.
And he decided to open his new standup show on Thursday by reading out a news story about his seven-minute YouTube, telling his 100-strong audience he was trying to be deliberately provocative.

Brand mocked people who had commented on his video during the show at The Proud Archivist in Hackney, London, and highlighted one message which suggested he should go and live in Syria.

Hundreds have slammed his comments on social media, saying he was being disrespectful to the 38 tourists who lost their lives, including 30 Britons.
Zoë Kirk-Robinson ‏said: ‘As if Syria doesn’t have enough problems, here comes Russell Brand!’
Graham Eden ‏tweeted: ‘I’m off to Syria’. After his election performance what could possibly go wrong!’
Adrian Owlett said: ‘Bye bye and don’t hurry back.’
Gavin Sutton said: ‘And do please stay there.’
Brand highlighted reader StevHilsley’s message: “If he feels so strongly why does he not go and live in Syria and I would pay his fare for him. Anyone else contribute?”
A GoFundMe page has now been set up which aims to raise £1,000 for his one-way ticket.
It said:

‘Is there any chance we can all put money in to send the tremendous c***womble that is Russell Brand to live in Syria, just because he has an ego the size of the sun and he annoys the absolute **** out off me and many others I’m guessing?

‘Your help would be much appreciated. If he doesn’t accept said ticket to leave, at least he know’s he not wanted and it will be donated to a good cause.’

The wicked shall not go unpunished - Oyedepo tells hoodlums vandalizing properties

General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has reacted to the ongoing vandalization and looting of government and private properties by hoodlums in the country.

Oyedepo declared that all the hoodlums taking undue advantage of the unrest in the country will not go unpunished.

The cleric made the declaration during his Sunday service on October 25.

The clergyman also prophesied that unrest in the country was over and that the peace of God has been restored back to the land.

“The sources of agitation will be wisely dealt with and favorably dealt with; the land shall rest again in the name of Jesus Christ.

“All the hoodlums who are taking advantage of this season, let hand be joined in hand, the wicked shall not go unpunished.

“Innocent people on the streets going about their own cause and businesses, they were in their shops, the only business they have.

“CAUTION! You don’t have a double life, you have only one, you don’t have a spare. Caution! I bind all activities of the devil behind every form of unrest being inflicted by hoodlums in the name of Jesus,” he prayed.
