Should the police have apologised for "Allahu Akbar!" being shouted at a mock terror attack? James O'Brien says no - and his explanation why is a compelling argument.

"Some people got offended," said James.

"But some people will get offended by everything. The hardest thing to do is to find the confidence to say: yeah, that's fair - and that's not.

"Life is a little bit more complicated than Muslims good or Muslims bad, Muslims right or Muslims wrong, Christians good or Christians bad, Labour good or Labour bad, Conservatives right or Conservatives wrong.

"It's like I always say to you about strikes. If you support every single strike that happens, you're an idiot.

"But if you oppose every single strike that happens, you're probably an even bigger idiot.

"Some strikes are justified, some strikes are not.

"Some complaints about Islamophobia are justified, some are not.

"I imagine it was probably people being offended on the behalf of Muslims...but it doesn't mean you're right.

"It doesn't mean you're right."
