    Default Russel Brand

    I feel sorry for you guys. After what happened with him and Jonathon Ross with regards to Andrew Sachs (Manuel from Fawlty Towers) it looks like his going to be in the US to stay.

    Brand (and Jonathan Ross, who I don't think is at all known in the US) make a prank call to Sachs for their radio show.



    It cost Brand his job, Ross is currently suspended, there is fucking murder about it.

    guess the pre-recorded bit ran and no problems, then 5 days later it became a big issue thanks to the press...guess the good old u.s. of a. ain't the only one run by the media.

    and yes, it was pre-recorded and no one stopped it from running. so who really is to blame?

    this is what brand's friend noel gallagher had to say:
    "...As was Russell Brand. Who incidentally has caused what seemingly has turned into a major shit storm. A sad sign of the times, I'm afraid. We live in a country where fat ugly columnists can somehow dictate to the rest of us what we should and shouldn't think. Who gives a shit anyway? Me? You? Max Clifford? And as for the 10,000 people who it took 5 days to be offended??......... go back to your coffee morning crosswords and fade to grey. Anyway, ask him he was there."

    we have to pay a TV licence about £100 a year I think?
    It basically pays for BBC1 and 2. ITV and Channel4 and Five are free. But basically yeah it pays for 2 channels because BBC doesn't have adverts.

    And Johnathon Ross get 6 million a year and that's what my TV licence fee goes on. Winding up OAPs.

    What your licence fee provides

    The BBC is paid for directly through each household TV licence. This allows it to run a wide range of popular public services for everyone, free of adverts and independent of advertisers, shareholders or political interests.

    The BBC provides 8 interactive TV channels, 10 radio networks, more than 50 local TV and radio services, the BBC's website, and the on-demand TV and radio service, BBC iPlayer.

    BBC World Service is funded by government grant and not the TV licence fee. Profits from separate BBC commercial services help to keep the licence fee low
    It's just irritating that you have to pay it regardless of whether you ever even watch their channels.

    We only have 4 analogue channels, but there are close to 600 digital ones on satellite (most of which seem to show re-runs of Friends all day).

    more from him:
    "Can't believe that non-story involving Russell and Jonathan is STILL rumbling on. How is it that a talented handsome devil loses his job because of The Daily Mail and a “Satanic Slut” gets rich because of The Tabloids? That's the English and its media for you, I suppose."

    who is the "satanic slut"?

    That would be the girl they refer to, Andrew Sachs' grand-daughter. She's in a "Satanic burlesque" group, called the Satanic Sluts.
