Oh ffs, this Brand/Ross prank call story has been one of the top news items for days over here. It’s such a non-story! Forgetting that fact that Russel Brand is an annoying tosser to start with, the most that should have happened is the pair got a good slap for such juvenile and unfunny behavior, they and the BBC apologized and there is an inquiry into who approved the show for broadcast. End of. Instead we have a media circus, Gordon Brown sticking his oar in and 18,000 people complaining (most of them after it was smeared over all the papers/news sites).
