Good stuff online: Russell Brand on Margaret Thatcher

April 14, 2013

The Guardian of London published this remarkably deep, thoughtfully enraged remembrance of Margaret Thatcher from a surprising corner — as Andy remarked, who knew Russell Brand (the comic actor with the out-of-control hair and five-minute-marriage to pop star Katy Perry) was such a fine, intelligent, self-searching writer?

“I hope I’m not being reductive but it seems Thatcher’s time in power was solely spent diminishing the resources of those who had least for the advancement of those who had most. I know from my own indulgence in selfish behaviour that it’s much easier to get what you want if you remove from consideration the effect your actions will have on others.”
