Brand, 33, decided to take a jab at Straw, 62, after he joined others in demanding that Jonathan Ross, 48, and he pay the BBC"s 150,000 pounds fine over Sachsgate. The actor claimed that the former Foreign Secretary should be fined for his role in leading Britain into Iraq.
“I demand Jack Straw pays the 7billion pounds he squandered on the Iraq war that we didn"t want," the Daily Star quoted him as writing on his Twitter page. “No wonder his son has to toke himself to sleep," he had added.
Straw"s son William was cautioned for trying to sell cannabis to an undercover reporter in 1997 when he was 17. There were no comments from a Ministry of Justice spokesman on the matter.
