    Thanks for reviewing my response, and it wasn't intended as patronising, and mildly humorous was appropriate, leave the easy hit rofling to folk like odious Leftie non-comic Jo Brand who going by what happened to Danny Baker should really get her marching orders after last night, but won't

    She won't get the sack from the BBC even though what she said was totally unacceptable, just hope some fame crazed prat don't act upon it.
    Being an ex-mental health nurse she should know better.

    Oops! Upset the ‘boss’...again.

    Fair point about Jo Brand...should have known better...on the other hand, context (‘Heresy’ R4) is relevant and at least the odious Farage now has some idea of what it’s like to be targeted/vilified. He’s spent enough time making life uncomfortable for others.

    He was inept and evasive this morning imo, but try telling that to the Tory grass roots.
    RA he's just a Lynton Crosby dummy hide him away so no body can question him Crosby did the same with Zac Goldsmith in the London Mayoral election but made the mistake of trying to make out Sadiq Khan was a Muslim extremist sympathiser fortunately voters saw through him Not exactly true that the Tory party members will chose the next PM only the MPs who chose the final two About time her maj dissolved parliament and let's start again I don't like we're this is going

    I stand corrected, mista...I meant the ultimate decision rests with Tory Party members but you’re right...the final two are chosen by MP’s. Seems Johnson is going to top the first round but then it gets marginally less of a foregone.

    I don’t like where it’s all going either, or how another disreputable ‘Sir’...the Australian, Lyndon Crosby has become about the most influential individual in British politics.

    So somebody who doesn't suit your political agenda should be sacked But it's ok for the right wing press spew their lies about Corbyn and McDonald everyday Anybody who thinks Joe Brand wasn't joking must have had a sense of humour bypass

    I don’t have a political agenda other than a political correctness one, it was PC that got Baker sacked (and yes he was a prat for his comments) and PC that will save Brand. I’ve never found her sour humour especially funny either

    Well if you don't have political agenda Andy you don't exactly go out of your way to hide it ie (the left wing BBC) Fail to see the connection of wanting Brand sacked just because Danny Baker was be has a history of being controversial and being dismissed Not really a reason to sack somebody because you don't find them funny

    More votes than his 3 closest rivals combined........ Having taken on dual nationality last December, I think my Dutchship may well come in very handy....... BoJo will do to the country what he allegedly did to the pig's head...... IMO.

    At least my two deluded 100/1’s have gone, along with the thoroughly unpleasant insult to womanhood, Leadsom. Let’s hope we don’t hear from them ever again.
    Other than that...bad news. How does one get a Dutch citizenship, MA?

    You really think it qualifies as sense of humour territory?

    For what it’s worth...I think Jo Brand made an unwise joke in the current circumstances.

    Having said that...context is everything and on R4’s ‘Heresy’ programme you are going to find people saying things which, in other circumstances, are entirely indefensible.

    It’s also worth saying that the purpose of much ‘alternative’ comedy is to overstep the line and shock. Such lines are constantly being redrawn and what was once acceptable ‘humour’ e.g. ‘Love Thy Neighbour’, ‘On the Buses’, ‘It Ain’t ‘Arf Hot Mum’ is - in the name of political correctness (and good taste) - no longer so.

    Frankly though, it beggars belief that the likes of Farage and the Sun are claiming such moral outrage.

    Jo Brand made it perfectly clear at the time, to any nutters out there, that she was joking and didn’t actually advocate the idea. It was a joke about the silly impotence of throwing milkshakes. It was, in her words, a ‘fantasy’ about doing something more radical to people she perceives as disuniting and damaging our/her country.

    Did she choose her words ill advisedly in the circumstances? Yes, probably.
    Has she caused as much harm and hurt by it as Farage’s attempts to make racism respectable? No certainly not, but it won’t stop those on the Right bleating on about how that nasty, fat, leftie so called comedienne has incited hatred and violence. Hypocrites!

    She gives pig ugly a bad name.. Should be arrested just for that.
    I wonder what would happen if the intended recipient was David Lammey or someone of that ilk?

    Wow! Maybe you think we should reintroduce the witches’ ducking stool for good measure seeing as she looks a bit weird.

    What exactly is David Lammey’s ‘ilk’ then, Angry?

    Seems it’s been decided she has a case to answer. I actually think the limit of Baker’s andBrand’s punishments should have been to be widely called out for being insensitive tw*ts but the inconsistency is my issue. Note that I’ve not found her funny for twenty years and never called for her head before.
