Has Labour, and specifically Ed Miliband, endorsed Russell Brand?

Has Labour, and specifically Ed Miliband, endorsed Russell Brand?

Can each Labour candidate (including councillors) be asked their view on Russell Brand's "philosophy":

“Have you been out in society recently? 'Cause it's SHIT.”

“A small minority cannot control an uncooperative majority, so they must be distracted, divided, tyrannized, or anesthetized into compliance.”

“We all need something to help us unwind at the end of the day. You might have a glass of wine, or a joint, or a big delicious blob of heroin to silence your silly brainbox of its witterings but there has to be some form of punctuation, or life just seems utterly relentless.”

“What I've learnt - to my cost - on several occasions in my life, is that people will put up with all manner of bad behaviour so long as you're giving them what they want. They'll laugh and get into it and enjoy the anecdotes and the craziness and the mayhem as long as you're going your job well, but the minute you're not, you're fucked. They'll wipe their hands of you without a second glance.”

“I like threesomes with two women, not because I'm a cynical sexual predator. Oh no! But because I'm a romantic. I'm looking for "The One." And I'll find her more quickly if I audition two at a time.”

“My life is just a series of embarrassing incidents strung together by telling people about those embarrassing incidents.”
(presumably we must regard his support of Labour as just another embarrasing incident).
