Maajid Nawaz hits out at the "rank hypocrisy" in the fallout following Jo Brand's battery acid joke, calling out the tribalistic politics behind calls for her to be sacked.

The comedian said on a radio show: "Certain unpleasant characters are being thrown to the fore and they're very, very easy to hate and I'm kind of thinking: 'Why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?' That's just me. I'm not going to do it, it's purely a fantasy, but I think milkshakes are pathetic, I honestly do, sorry."

But Maajid Nawaz called out the political tribalism that surrounded the outrage that followed, hitting at the reactions to Danny Baker's royal baby joke and Carl Benjamin's remarks about not raping Labour MP Jess Philips.
