How many of the 30,000+ people who have complained about the Brand/Ross incident have actually heard what was broadcast?

I can understand Manuel and his satanic slut granddaughter complaining - but I am bemused that over 99.99% of the complaints appear to have been lodged some days after the offending broadcast, and only once the Daily Mail had taken it upon themselves to make a story of it.

Yes, the BBC did react too slowly - but I feel the response they eventually gave (asking the head of Radio 2 to fall on their sword and suspending Ross for three months) was over the top.

It was a rather juvenile joke by Brand and Ross, but then - what do you expect on the Russell Brand show? The equivalent to Oscar Wilde?
