Russell Brand and Miriam Margolyes: Don’t fall for the false charms of those two pantomime preachers

You don’t have to order people to decapitate their enemies. Just rub the itch of their youthful alienation, enrage them with an egregious sense of wrong, remove those filters of uncertainty that should make for hesitancy and reflection, fill their minds with the pap of propaganda, phantom grievance and prompt remedy, and no one’s head is safe.
Howard Jacobson, like no one else.
