So Brand is in hot water, maybe just wants to drink the milkshake first, What's your hot take? sense of humor failure? its only ok to make incendiary remarks against people who have wrong views? throw the book at her ?



A joke made by Jo Brand about throwing battery acid at politicians is being assessed by the Metropolitan Police following an allegation of incitement to violence.

The comedian made the joke on Victoria Coren Mitchell’s Heresy radio programme on Tuesday night, prompting criticism from Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, among others.

A police statement to the Press Association on Thursday said: “Police have received an allegation of incitement to violence that was reported to the MPS on June 13th.

“The allegation relates to comments made on a radio programme. The allegation is currently being assessed.

“There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.”

The Press Association understands that the allegation reported to the police was not made by Mr Farage or the Brexit Party.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Mr Farage accused Brand of inciting violence, although he did not say who against.

He wrote: “This is incitement of violence and the police need to act.”

Hang on a second, you lot defended Carl Benjamins rape comments about a female MP under the banner of free speech and 'it was just comedy'. Ditto the cretin who used his girlfriends dog to rant about gassing Jews.

Now you're screeching for Jo Brands head.

Hypocrites much?

Typical double standards of the BBC on show here laughing it off as just a silly joke they certainly wouldn't be doinf the same if someone joked about throwing acid at left wing politicians it seems certain people are fair game because of their political views i dont as it happens think Jo Brand should be investigated for what was an ill judged joke i just have to point out the utter hypocrisy by the BBC and the MSM in general in relation to this.

We agree for once, it was a joke.
Mind you if you thought Carl Benjamins comment was offensive, you'd have to apply the same standards to Jo Brand.

No. This was said on a comedy show.

If it had been blurted out in the middle of Question Time you would have a point.

Farrage has some neck complaining about this. When he said he would take up the rifle if Brexit didn't happen this is what he whined later.

It makes no difference where it was said the point remains that if someone joked about something similar about left wing politicians sjws would be in absolute meltdown calling for the police to investigate the incident yet here they remain silent as i said i dont think this incident should be investigated but its clearly another case of hypocrisy of the left.

Shows the complete absurdity of the UK's incitement laws and Farage is a snow-flakey twit.

No, you are just seeking to be offended here and your outrage is clearly effected.

There is a huge difference between a flippant remark on a comedy panel show and actually calling for something to happen.

Time and again the far right are so beloved of calling anyone who disagrees with them snowflakes, and yet they are the biggest snowflakes of them all.

Danny Baker sacked without recourse for tweeting a monkey picture.

Jo Brand unsackable for inciting acid attacks on politicians
Oh get a grip. It was a remark on a comedy panel show - not a suggestion on Question Time or the One Show.

The effected outrage & offence on display is actually very amusing of itself.

Acid attacks destroy people's lives. Acid attacks are out of control in Britain. Throwing a milkshake at someone is a stupid juvenile thing to do. Someone in the public eye, even if it is a fat frumpy middle aged woman who is completely irrelevant, making light of that and suggesting that someone should throw acid over someone they disagree with is inappropriate and she should be called out on it.

How come Danny's effort at humour was unacceptable but we're all expected to laugh at Jo's effort?

It's a glaring double standard.

The grim thing is that acid attacks are now part of diversity Britain culture
