Yesterday David Cameron described Russell Brand as a ‘joke’ after it was revealed that Ed Miliband had paid a late-night visit to the comedian’s home for an interview:
‘Russell Brand is a joke. Ed Miliband meeting him is a joke. This election isn’t funny.’
Brand has now responded and has ridiculed Cameron for claiming to be a football fan when he was once a member of the elite Bullingdon Club. In the tweet, which includes the infamous 1996 ‘Buller’ photo, he suggests Cameron ought not to be too jealous that he hung out with Miliband, as the pair will no doubt bump into one another at a West Ham match:
Don’t be jealous Dave – I’ll run into you at West Ham – when you’re not busy with “ordinary people” pic.twitter.com/wB1Paq9xHV

Whether Cameron will ever be found at Boleyn Ground, West Ham’s stadium, remains to be seen. Mr S reported last week how the Prime Minister had urged an audience to support West Ham despite previously claiming to be an avid Aston Villa supporter. Mr S makes the score Cameron:1 – Brand 1.
