Russel Brand attends the premiere of Arthur in Sydney

I'm glad Jemima Khan asked me to contribute to this issue of the New Statesman as it (at last) gives me the opportunity to prove the existence of God. You may think me unqualified for a task that has baffled the finest theologians, philosophers and physicists since the dawn of time but don't worry, I've been unqualified for every job I've ever embarked on, from learning to drive to working as a postman for the Royal Mail, and both these quests were successfully completed, aside from a few broken wing mirrors and stolen letters.

PUTTING your mother through the agony of seeing you in rehab on Christmas Day can't be easy.

But Russell Brand finally wiped that particularly grimy slate clean with his beloved mum Barbara by taking her to last month's Oscars.
The stand-up comic, 35 whisked her away from Grays, Essex, to escort her on a once-in-a-lifetime walk up the red carpet.
