Isnt there a law against this kind of hatred ?

First thing that occurred to me when seeing the milk shake attack was that could easily have been something a lot worse than milk. And for Brand to come very close to inciting an acid attack on a public figure is dispicable.

This has nothing to do with Brexit

If it's mocking left wings views it's 'hate speech'.

If it's mocking right wing views it's 'edgy satire'.

shep, let me clarify. I don't think in the current environ it's appropriate to make that joke, but it's a comedian it's clearly a joke even if not a particularly funny one.

I'd be more concerned at a politician, a newspaper columnist, or a talkshow host saying something of that ilk.

The job of a comedian is to make people laugh, the job of a politician is to shape society, newspapers try to shape peoples thoughts and views.

don't know if she is self loathing or not, I think the comment was more about trying to be edgy and relevant which she hasn't been since 1997

Regarding the rifle comment being equally as bad, it's worse, the guy is supposed to be a politician, a figure of influence, shaping our social framework, his words carry far more wight than that of a comedian.

Wasn’t it on the R4 programme Heresy?
In the show, the presenter and a panel of guests commit "heresy" by challenging people's most deeply received opinions on a subject, in front of a studio audience.
I find it hard to believe that the usual suspects, the incels, misogynists and Brexiteers would be able to find R4 never mind listen to it!

There have also been some vicious acid attacks which have destroyed peoples lives.

There was also Jo Cox shot dead.

glad you are coming round Boromart.

It pretty much finished Conellys stand up career and he re-invented himself as some kind of national treasure on travel.

She is not C list as the BBC and channel 4 panel shows are full of her. I hope it has the same effect on her, except the second part.

I don't really find that many jokes offensive. I even think the one chubby brown did to get him banned from the town hall was funny. Frankie Boyle. Family guy. Derek and Clive. Sometimes I think they can be a bit desperate if they miss the mark. I mean frankie Boyle is far better than making shit jokes about Jordans kid. He shouldn't really be stooping to that. Can't say I'm massively bothered by it though.

What I don't like are the miserable sods be they right wing or left wing. Constantly moaning and whining. I wish the lot of them would just fuck off and let's those of us who just like to laugh at things have a little joy. You're both as bad as each other. It's so so incredibly petty.

I'm not amused now. It's not a very funny joke. It's good to hear that people are still making jokes though. That they aren't put off by the whining hordes. You're all desperate to be offended by the other side. It's feeble. Try watching something you like. If people do stuff you don't like just ignore it.

I mean people are getting afraid to open their mouth for fear of getting jumped on. Are you all so stupid that you don't realise for every whine and moan about something left wing that's got you riled, the left are going to whine and moan about something you like until it's hounded off screen. Look at the shit Clarkson took constantly before his own tw@tishness got him fired. I'm amazed he lasted that long.

Boromart; Clive Road Stamper has answered your question for me. Acid? That certainly is despicable and particularly when you think of the fact that a couple of years ago a democratically elected politician was murdered! Brand seems to be endorsing an acid attack, “milk shakes are pathetic”, she said, implying they are not enough. And I think that is sufficient to describe her despicable but if you think that such inciting to violence is acceptable then that’s up to you.

I wonder if Katie Piper finds Brand’s “joke” funny?

It's another perfect example of someone with a left wing mindset who thinks they have their own exclusive set of rules as to what can and can't be said and when it should be construed as funny.

Yet when someone says something which doesn't compute with their level of thinking they squeal.

They always like to try and be in the driving seat and set the goalposts out and move them at their time of choosing.

It's their way, or the highway.

She has a responsibility as a comedian to separate her job, from her personal opinion just as do most people in their respective walks of life and jobs.

The fact she has apologised and shut down her social media shows that she knows she was in the wrong.

I agree with you. Poor judgment in the current climate really.

But the thing that seems to be missing in all the hoo haa is that I understand she carried on from the joke by saying something along the lines of “actually this is a poor joke, and not only is it a joke, I don’t support the whole milk shake thing at all, people shouldn’t act like that to other human beings if they disagree with them”.

The point of the whole thing was probably actually about promoting respect for other human beings. Although I’m not a great fan of her comedy, I think Jo Brand has great reserves of respect and empathy for other people and we could probably do with a bit more of that at the moment. 👍

Yes, joking about throwing acid in someone's face is simply Sharing the Love. She probably really respects Farage and voted Brexit too.

Also making wise cracks about stabbing men through the heart only goes to demonstrate that, in fact, she cares too much.

I believe that JB once worked for the NHS which is as good as proof that she does not have a hateful bone in her body and is actually politically impartial.

Shep, hello, and welcome back under username 467. Hope you manage to stay around a little longer this time.

Serious question, are you paid to post by an organisation?
Is it actually your job to come on and try (albeit unsuccessfully, and repeatedly) and change people's opinions and 'rescue' them from the left ie the 'dark side?'
Why do left leaning people get under your skin so very much? Where does you anger stem from?
Seriously, what's your deal? I genuinely find you a fascinating individual.

"I believe that JB once worked for the NHS which is as good as proof that she does not have a hateful bone in her body and is actually politically impartial."

You can't be serious [:D]

She's an ardent Labour Party member, and has made video for Labour Party election broadcasts!

I find her pretty funny, but the acid remark was clearly a mistake. It's always a dead giveaway that a comedian knows they screwed up when they have to say "it was only a joke" afterward.

Acid attacks are too close to home these days to be the topic for humour.

Farages comment about "rifles" was a reference to the first world war - he mentioned being on the "front lines" in the same sentence - so a common metaphor. Not quite in the same league as suggesting an "acid attack".

Ms Brands technique is quite often to issue on the edge comments with a deadpan expression. Which can be very funny but she's always liable to get caught out.

The problem is that other people have been locked up, fined and kicked out of their jobs for saying less.

I find the entire "offence" industry is complete madness. But even I found her comments a tad unfortunate. A severe telling off is called for. But that's all.

BR have you heard of context in a comedy show. Also have you listened to the whole show? Yes? Lame excuse for Farage's comments by the way. Comparing it to the spirit of frontline in WW1 is nonsense. You'll be telling us he meant it in a Dad's Army sort of way next.

"The murder was widely believed to be a punishment for the own goal. In the UK, the BBC issued a public apology after its football pundit Alan Hansen commented during the match between Argentina and Romania that "the Argentine defender warrants shooting for a mistake like that", on July 3, a day after the murder of Escobar."

Coming from a sad c*nt like you - who gets banned biweekly, returns perpetually, stalks the proprietor because you he takes away what little outlet for social interaction you have, wastes thousands of hours creating email addresses and usernames (getting on for the best part of two decades) just so you can go on arguing with strangers (or "the clique" just to give them your not at all too taking the internet too seriously nickname) who point out that your far right, unadulterated racism for what it is but you simply cant get your head round it because you're a particularly sad, thick and unhappy individual - that means very little mate.

This is too funny - you are claiming an anonymous user on an Internet forum getting (what you perceive to be) angry at you, as some sort of victory?
Only, we’ve all seen you repeatedly lose your rag with your vitriolic outbursts, name calling, accusations etc, for years and years, getting banned time after time. Follows the same pattern every.single.time. Transparent, predictable, vitriolic, angry.
Was very easy to push your buttons last time to see you get banned again.
But you have to return, re-register and start the process again. Because you need this in your life.You crave this place. It defines you.
But you carry on trotting out the ‘look at me, I’ve got somebody angry! I’m winning the Internet!’ line if it makes you feel any better. You usually do.

You aren’t fooling anyone ( except for Tublin of course).

Slippery slope when we start to censor comedians...

What next a tailored and restricted internet? Exclusive or unatainable education? Restriction on travel? Decent Health care only available to those that can afford it. Gentrification?

Oh hang on...

My god this country is fucked and we all just stand by and fucking watch while we tap away on the latest iPhones whilst ingnoring our kids and fail to pass on life lessons.

Stop the world I want off.

Comedians make jokes, you may think it bad taste and you might be right but if you advocate any action against her then I worry for the state of the world we will end up with.

So the left think the BBC is right wing the right think the BBC is left wing. The BBC don't want to be seen to promote any views where it can be seen to leaning one way or the other so start with the censorship. And that does more harm.

It's like the centre ground doesn't exist anymore and we argue over everything as a polarising issue, even the next Boro manager or a joke ffs. Madness if I had any real cash I'd be investing in mental health hospitals because the majority of free thinking people who feel they don't need to pick a side on every tiny issue are Gunna be labeled crazy, and you would probably agree and check yourself in.

I see the Corbyn one as more offensive/disgusting/disgraceful etc. and I'm not exactly a Corbyn fan.

I don't think Brand should have to answer to anyone. It's no worse than Jimmy Carr doing jokes about teenage daughters having to shag their dad to save their mam!

That's called a "question", a sentence worded or expressed so as to elicit information, convention is to punctuate it with a "?" symbol.

I don't recall, what was the "lefty" response?


And please show references and links to our righteous fury otherwise we'll think you're just making it up.

Thanks.
