It’s not a great joke, in my estimation, but I get it. Perhaps, had she said ‘Cow shit’ instead of battery acid there wouldn’t have been any flack.
I doubt if anybody would actually commit this act just from listening to Brand telling a joke on Radio 4…..a typical Radio 4 listener is more likely to come round your house and unlawfully dig up the weeds!
What’s weird is: the joke does not infringe any of our agreed political correct ‘rules’ i.e. it is not sexist or racist. Yet she has apologised, while the BBC has removed it from the show. Is this what the rise of the right will lead to? Censorship?
