Daily Mail runs it as a story to get back a Brand calling them Nazi's.

Daily Mail readers love complaining about anything and everything.

Other Media pick up on the story.

Politicians seize on it as an opportunity to show just how moral and just they are, plus it deflects from a multitude of negaitive stories currently affecting politicians.

Offcom must investigate due to number of complaints.

BBC must act due to Offcom investigation.

Public and Political pressure force BBC to make an over-reaction so as they are still seen to be accountable to those who fund them.

ROSS AND BRAND ARE HEROES, SAY SPANISH


'My Eeengleesh is a very gooood'
THE Madrid government last night sprang to the defence of Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross hailing them as the new heroes of anti-Spanish racism.

Prime minister José Luis Zapatero said the assault on Andrew Sachs was 'measured' given the actor's portrayal of a halfwit Spaniard who thinks a rat is some kind of Siberian hamster.

Zapatero said Sachs, banned from entering Spain since 1976, was single-handedly responsible for the country's image as a nation of greasy-haired chimpanzees who have to have everything explained to them twice.


A spokesman for the Spanish embassy in London said: "We've been leaving dirty messages on his answerphone for years.

"And every Sunday we camp outside his house and chuck handfuls of paella at his front door."

Spain's biggest newspaper El Pais said: "Señors Ross and Brand are the champions of every waiter who has ever served a table of drunken English tourists who find it amusing to answer all of his questions with 'Qué?' until one of them finally comes out with 'I'm so sorry, he's from Barcelona'."

Meanwhile, as Russell Brand admitted he had been 'caught up in the money', jumped-up researcher Jonathan Ross was last night told to apologise 18 million times over the next three years.

The BBC has also offered Brand's £200,000 salary to the Treasury to help pay down the jaw-droppingly out-of-control national debt that everyone seems to think is irrelevant compared to some swear words on an answering machine.

I think Noel Gallagher got it spot on today when he said

Quote:
It's so typical of the English in general - 10,000 people get outraged, but only five days after it has happened.


Well said Noel! I wonder how many of the reported 30'000 complainees actually listened to the show?

It doesnt matter if you listened to the show, this is a chance to get that idiot Jonathan Ross off our screens and trash his ridiculous £18m contract. It's just a shame Russell got caught up in it all.
