    Wonder why the BBC have been so lenient on Joe Brand compared to Danny Baker.

    Tossers.

    I barely watch any tv anyway, and I’ll probably not renew my licence fee when the time comes round. All I watch is old sitcoms which can be found online, and sports events the same.

    Danny Baker’s crime was being male, white and straight.

    Of course Brand was I believe a guest on a show, and not an employee.... but it still stinks of hypocrisy.

    Just another reason.

    No standardisation of Morales
    Pay structure
    License fees
    No concessions for elderly
    Political bias
    Etc etc

    Again context is important here. The BBC have made a statement on it, which provides a bit of this.

    I think there has been an over reaction to Jo Brand's comments. She is a comedian and it was obviously a joke. The police enquiry is absurd in my opinion.

    But I agree with those who say it is double standards from the BBC given the way they treated Danny Baker. If they're going to apply such a literal (stupid) interpretation with one then why not with the other?

    It is the double standards that's the problem. Had she been a right-wing comic making that joke about David Lammy, it would probably have finished her TV and radio career.
