Russell Brand’s Revolution: Using Rape And Hitler’s Publisher To Spark The ‘Divine’

RUSSELL Brand, age 39, has written  Revolution , a book dedicated ‘To the divine, mischievous spark in you”.

Craig Brown reviews in the Mail :

‘Russell Brand wants YOU to join the Revolution’ is the pithy way his publishers, Century, put it.  Oddly enough, Century is a part of Penguin Random House, itself a division of the German media conglomerate Bertelsmann and Pearson PLC, the largest education company and book publisher in the world, and owners of the Financial Times

Brand doesn’t like the Daily   Mail , which once declared “HURRAH FOR THE BLACK SHIRTS”, but he can work with Bertelsmann which only in 2002 “ admitted it lied about its Nazi past and that it made big profits during Adolf Hitler’s reign in Germany using Jewish slave labour”.

Mail bad. Never forget. Bertelsmann fine. Forget and forgive. (And Brand is no fan of Nazis .)

 

 

Brown adds:

His belief in small, democratic collectives clearly does not extend to the publishers of his own book; he never bothers to explain why not…

Russell Brand’s act is a good one. He dosn;t ahve to explain. You don’t have to review the book. His job is to be entertaining. And he can be.
