brz diff --using /usr/bin/colordiff
You can use alias to creata a shortcut.

It removes the branch from the repository, keeping the working tree
You can check listing the hidden files in the removed branch, .bzr file
is disappeared. The references to the deleted branch are removed from
the repository, too. But it could be less easy to check this.

from a lot of years. :)

If you want to remove also the working tree, you have to do by hand.
