Spike Milligan was a real funnyman and surely got it right about the future when he wrote this script in 1983 :
Laugh at a cretin; Unemploymethon
'ROUSING, FUN TYPE, MUSIC, AS SIMILAR AS POSSIBLE TO LONDON WEEKEND'S 'GAME FOR A LAUGH'.
PAN ACROSS GLITTERY CAPTION : 'LAUGH AT A CRETIN' WE HEAR A LOUD JOLLY VOICE OVER :
VOICE OVER : Yes, it's 'Laugh at a cretin'. The show where the old, the educationally sub-normal, the poor, the disadvantaged, are laughed at by a load of awful fat woman with false teeth.
BRIEF CUT AWAY TO WEMBLEY CROWD CHEERING.'
Milligan wrote this 7 years after Russell Brand was born.
