Something needs to happen to her, surely she cannot get away with inciting acid attacks ?

Came in here expecting something similar to what she said about Thatcher..and everyone overexagerating it. But no, this really is gross. The BBC should not have aired the comments..they should know much better. And honestly..I cannot say this kind of 'joke' is uncommon among lefties right now. Its scared me a bit, how some seem to actually want proper violence and that rather than milkshakes thrown, and I can see it all progressing at some stage soon, given how applauded the people who are (technically..) committing assault are.

Oh dear. She has stuffed herself good and proper by saying this. A terrible thing to say. I dislike some politicians immensely but would never wish this sort of thing upon them.

Funny isn’t it, when racists try and incite racial hatred using ‘jokes’ they should be let off based on free speech and ‘sacred comedy’ and all that, but as soon as someone on the left makes a dark joke, it’s suddenly unacceptable and should be stopped, hypocrisy strikes again.

Can you give some examples of this outlandish claim.

It was bad, I don’t agree with what she said, but listening to the actual recording of what she said and the context given, it was clearly meant as a joke on her behalf, just a very bad, tasteless one, something the right have been claiming that should be protected at all costs when it’s them and their friends getting in trouble for things they call ‘jokes’

What’s good for the goose and all that

It's not funny, but she always makes horrible jokes like that, I never found her funny in the first place. I don't think it's something for her to be arrested for though, it's very obviously that it's not something that she actually meant.

Its not a joke to me, a joke is funny, this just came across spiteful and nasty. And both her and the BBC should know better than to do this. Especially now, as if someone does so this, it will be blamed on both her and the BBC too..and I really can see it all going further. As I have said a few times, it won't stay at milkshakes. Not sure if it will progress to acid mind, but it is going to get worse in some way.

I disagree she should be arrested because of this though, thats going a bit too far.

I also see where liam is coming from, 'its just a joke' is used to defend all manner of vile things said, when its someone you like telling the 'joke'. Where if you dislike them, its not a joke, they should be arrested and serve a life sentence. Some don't do this, but it seems common.

Can you give an example of "the right" or "the racists" as you described them firstly...can you give an example where they have urged someone be disfigured for simply being a politician offering different views.


And please actually click the link as it is acid attack victims urging for her to be arrested, not anyone political minded

This isn't about race it's about Jo Brands tasteless 'joke' I don't know why the BBC aired it tbh, the other guy got sacked that made the 'joke' about Megans baby,this is another step too far in so called 'comedy'

it's all about context. Jo Brand was on a comedy show where controversy is the norm. The more controversial the better. That shouldn't be then taken out of that context and used to beat her up.

I know it’s not about race, I just used it as an example of the hypocrisy

The Radio 4 Show was pre-recorded
and added canned laughter.


The BBC are silly to stick up for her.


a week ago she did Have I Got News For You

I think in the current climate it is reckless, I don't care how controversial the programme is meant to be, 'jokes' like this cross the line

Exactly and it’s most commonly the people that call people ‘snowflakes’ for calling out racism and general bigotry, yet as soon as the boot is on the other foot, it’s a completely different story, I think as people we need to start being more consistent and honest.

Where were everyone when the blacks were attacked? It's just people backing a cause for the sake of it and wanting to waste police time really?

Also funny how everyone wanting her to spend her life in prison are the same people who kicked up a fuss over Tommy Robinson be arrested for his many many crimes
