How do I eradicate brambles that are growing through a privet hedge without killing the hedge?

Bramble roots are actually quite weak and generally easily chopped out with a spade, which is the best solution.

If the root is hard to get at, which can be the case with a hedge, the stems can be cut away and dabbed with unditluted Roundup with a paint brush, which might have to be tied to a stick to reach the stems.
