Amazed it wasn't vetoed by the editors. Thank you Jo Brand!!

I just saw this too.

DifferentDayDifferentName Fri 25-May-18 21:13:26

It seemed to be glossed over, no real discussion although glad that it was mentioned.

Not much but people now know you can self id for Labour AWS. Shame they didn't make clear that he only got suspended after he'd revealed what was going on.

Ian Hislop is definitely GC. There’s been a lot of references over the last few weeks that have just gone under the radar, for some reason. I don’t know what to infer from the lack of comments about it.

BeyondPink Fri 25-May-18 21:18:14

Fantastic! Got it recording I think, will have a look later

EmpressOfSpartacus Fri 25-May-18 21:22:21

Private Eye is pretty GC.

MrsFogi Fri 25-May-18 21:23:45

I'll take any exposure pointing out the craziness - even if it doesn't cover the whole story etc.

I think it was good to be honest given the teeny amount of time available. They said his application was accepted and now he’s suspended and all the information is out there if people do a teeny google. They clearly showed they think the whole thing is batshit and said it was a protest. Compared to Radio 2 it’s an absolute delight!

Theinconstantgardener Fri 25-May-18 21:31:56

Just watched it. Agreed mrsFogi

Theinconstantgardener Fri 25-May-18 21:33:22

Whats the issue with r2?

BeyondPink Fri 25-May-18 21:34:48

As above. Any coverage that honestly gets it "out" is good news.

And IH is most definitely GC, IMO.

BeyondPink Fri 25-May-18 21:35:04

(And so is JB. IMO.)

speakingwoman Fri 25-May-18 21:39:58

What point in the programme?

Moonkissedlegs Fri 25-May-18 21:41:20

Yep I saw this. It was incredibly brief, but did very briefly show up self id as a stupid ridiculous thing I thought.

BeyondPink Fri 25-May-18 21:43:39

(i mean for IH we have the evidence of what has been published in Private Eye, but JB just strikes me as a woman who has sense, so that's my reasoning for thinking she is GC) grin

gardner Jeremy Vine did a bit about it on R2 where Jane “eggshell skull” Fae shouted over Linda Bellos (who wasn’t at her best tbh) and then in the phone in had a TIF and a parent of a trans child on in the phone in. AWS weren’t touched on at all, it was just “trans people have the right to exist” bleating, when nobody is saying they don’t. It was very frustrating.

Theinconstantgardener Fri 25-May-18 21:45:20

Oh I see. Thanks

Marmite27 Fri 25-May-18 21:45:27

I liked Jo’s ‘sisters are fucking doing it for themselves’ grin

BeyondPink Fri 25-May-18 21:46:27

David Lewis and you don't have the right to exist though, sweary. Figments of our imaginations.... grin

TopBitchoftheWitches Fri 25-May-18 21:47:57

I started a thread stating how disappointed I was with Jo Brand, this could have been an excellent chance to put women's sides across. She didn't do it.
It was simply brushed over.

ChattyLion Fri 25-May-18 21:49:04

Jo Brand is actively pro choice and has stuck her neck out on that.
Eg a while ago now

I am happy to know she is gender critical too. smile

MipMipMip Fri 25-May-18 21:50:15

About 8 minutes in Speaking, it leads with Ken Livingstone royally ripping Corbyn. Not a livingstone fan but it was beautiful. grin

QueenOfTheAndals Fri 25-May-18 21:51:09

@TopBitchoftheWitches To me it looks like Jo had more to say but it was edited out. The conversation on the show jumped very abruptly to Brexit.
