I do think you've got him wrong. I might have thought the same thing had I not listened to hundreds of hours of his podcast. Cheeky telephone conversations were one part of the show, sometimes with Finnish employees of a Moomin theme park, or with the voice of Bungle from Rainbow. In the case of that Sachs thing, Sachs had been booked for the show and he hadn't shown up, so Jonathan Woss, his fill-in co-host, egged him on to give him a call asking where he was. He was winging-in it and, considering one of the few things he knew about Sachs was that he had a granddaughter in a dominatrix troupe called the Satanic Sluts who he'd slept with, it came up. Prob not the kind of thing a granddad wants to hear about, but it's not really that big a deal. That hardly makes him Bernard Manning.

The revolution thing's pretty tongue-in-cheek and glib, but Brand's definitely not sexist (a sex addict, sure, but that doesn't mean the same thing). I mean the dude sits and chats with the homeless once every week or so. How many celebs do that?
