Thread: O/T Jo Brand acid attack joke acceptable or not?

  1. #61
    And inch by inch we usher in a new puritanical age.


    What is amazing is that it is atheist puritans who are putting the shackles on .



    Absolutely pathetic.

    We are turning into a nation of snitches.


    In many ways it is brilliant. No Stasi, No KGB, no secret police. Just the general public eavesdropping or ploughing through peoples twitter accounts and facebook pages looking for the one word, when they slip up!

    I think that you will find that is down to the media not normal people. Mostly us common people wouldn't give a **** about a joke in bad taste but this is not just a joke in bad taste she is actually calling people out on throwing milkshakes instead of acid.

    If anyone should get a grip on what is a joke and what is incitement I suggest that its you who need a reality check.

    I suppose you would be ok with it if the subject matter had been a gay person and she said why throw milkshakes when you could give them a good old gay bashing instead then try to back it up as just a ****ing joke get real people.

    Why ? What have you got to hide ? Eh eh ?

    Facebook & Twitter what garbage. Girls and boys even nowadays...."Saw your pictures on Facebook - thanks for inviting me" bull 5hit.

    The only good thing is they "OUT" under the counter deals - hypocrisy - untruths as people can check the facts quickly so politicians can't tell outright lies without contradiction. Not too long ago that was easy peasy.

    Although Brexit and the truth are not comfortable bed fellows.....lie after lie and so much miss-information the truth filters need cleaning every day because they get so clogged with bull 5hit.

    Jo Brand grassed up Carol Thatcher to her boss after she compared a tennis player to a golliwog in the green room on The One Show.

    If you hand it out then expect to get it back.

    Indeed.

    But the big problem is the uncontrolled witch hunts that infest the twittersphere

    But you do seem to launch into hysterical objections whenever an over enthusiastic LGBTQ++++++ person puts over a bit of an argument on Pink News to an audience of 5?

    Right or wrong in total seriousness what Brand said is not going to inspire the general public to go out and throw acid over politicians. How many cases followed on from her comment?

    Hardly anyone would have seen the programme (and bet no one on here saw the show first time round) and its only because of the outrage which followrd that brought it to wider attention.

    How anyone can condone that outburst of extreme hate, is as bad as Brand.The head of the BBC is on £490k a year and will be entitled to a platinum pension being subsidised by us tax payers.Instead of enforcing OAPs to fund his opulent lifestyle he should be brought to task to explain why this extremist is allowed on the airwaves.

    That was the police's response also. They aren't taking any further action.

    Add Baddiel and Coryn-Mitchell to the apologists list.

    MB, the Met have decided no further action will be taken so that puts a closure on all of this.

    It's interesting that with so much outrage on this thread to the extent of wanting police involvement, no one on here has engaged with the reality that Farage promoted the use of guns (if we're determined to take words literally a la Brand) if his Brexit was denied. Apart from one poster that seems to have suggested, with rather tortured logic, that it was a metaphor. So words inciting violence that are phrased into a metaphor are acceptable, but words formed into jokes aren't?

    (a more grown up response is that neither Farage nor Brand intend in any way to shoot/throw acid at opponents at their 'opponents' and that neither deserve the shrieks of outrage on here. But only one of them is getting the shrieks of outrage, the other is conveniently ignored)

    I thought Adrian Chiles was the main instigator in reporting Carol Thatcher for the "golliwog" remark. That said, I don't recall Jo Brand sticking up for her and telling everyone it was a joke.

    I'm slightly torn on the matter; the BBC would have gone for the jugular if any right leaning comedian had talked about throwing acid at a left wing politician, however I don't like the idea of censorship too.

    The BBC editors have, by allowing the comments to air, said it's open season. I expect some jokes about shooting left wing politicians pretty soon. 🤔

    Do get what you're saying but thanks to it being aired it's allowed many people to work out that Jo Brand is a poisonous c&&t. Every cloud and all that.

    Calm down pal.
    I have lost my temper on here at times and itís not worth it.
    I can tell from your responses that you feel strongly opposed to some views on here which is fair enough.
    Donít get too wound up mate Iíve done it myself.
