An Outrage Too Far

The reaction to Jo Brand’s ill-placed ‘joke’ is somewhat overblown suggests Matthew Steeples; that she angered Nigel Farage is just brilliant

Jo Brand certainly put her foot in the proverbial in making jokes about battery acid being a better thing to throw than milkshakes. Her remarks were indeed extremely ill-thought and show her as a childish woman desperate to get a laugh.

 

This comedian is certainly not someone I’d defend and she’s not someone I can admit to even having ever found funny, but that she pissed off that harbinger of angriness Nigel Farage is about the only thing that made me laugh. Equally, subsequently, that the failed-to-ever-win-a-seat-at-Westminster Brexit Party leader then demanded the “police need to act” simply shows him for what he is: A completely ridiculous hypocrite who himself has incited hatred towards foreigners.

 

Elsewhere, another failed politician in the form of the worst Home Secretary in history turned the worst Prime Minister in history, Theresa May, joined the braying mob and demanded the BBC explain why they deemed this “appropriate content for broadcast.” I’d suggest otherwise: Why on earth did they ever allow her to go on about running in wheat fields?

  1. Jo Brand should certainly apologise, given the hideous pain that many people have suffered from acid attacks. It’s equivalent to making Jews being turned into soap, lampshades or dental supplies. Utterly appalling.

    • Quite agree. One of the ‘jokes’ in the same programme was, “my father died in a concentration camp: he fell from a watchtower”. Brand, who I assume is Jewish thought it funny.
      Ugly face: ugly ‘jokes’

  2. This is not about Farage: this is about a woman who has influence amongst the ‘psychotic idiot classes’.
    Stop getting so agitated about Farage and see it for what is: a high profile woman making light of the use steaming, smoking flesh stripping, life disfiguring sulphuric acid to get a laugh. Farage is right to say the police should prosecute. And, please, Matthew, stop this nonsense about Farage being ‘foreigner hating’. Look at his MEP’s. Many have foreign backgrounds, including my friend Ben Habib.

  3. In the US, Kathy Griffin’s ill-placed joke cost her her career. Totally unwarranted over-reaction as far as I’m concerned but no-one asked my opinion. Wonder what will happen to Ms Brand.

  4. Oh for God’s sake, let’s all stop being politically correct all the time. It’s a bloody joke, just get over it and move on.

      • Peter, don’t be a complete Twat, I didn’t say it was funny. I was merely pointing out that the times we live in, it’s impossible not to offend somebody. Obviously 99% of the population don’t think it’s funny to throw battery acid at anybody. Like you say, only a psychotic idiot would think that was okay, so don’t be a silly fellow.

        • Don’t be so embarrassed by your idiocy.
          Your comments are always so dimwitted I am astonished the editor indulges you.

  5. Personally, I feel that Ms Brand’s observations were spot on.
    Today’s politicians could perhaps look to the appeasement of Hitler in the 1930’s as a time when the people were failed by the the leaders who are paid to serve them more than we have today.
    I dream of dipping the dishonourable members at Westminster in Napalm and then shoving a petrol soaked rag up their collective arses. I would then auction the honour of lighting the rag to the highest bidder. I suspect that David Cameron’s arse would raise more for the exchequer than most Chancellors would dare imagine.
