Brand of idiocy

I note that comic Russell Brand has commented on the minute’s silence for those slaughtered on the beach in Tunisia. He claims the token of respect was ‘’bull****’’, that basically it is the UK’s own fault and that if we only made their foreign policy decisions to please the Islamists these things would not happen.

Leaving aside the logic and total absurdity of his remarks, is he aware that among the victims in Tunisia were nationalities that have decidedly neutral foreign policies. The idea that a deranged terrorist would be remotely interested in the nationality of the victim defies belief.
