And then when he slates plebs for wearing Primark clothes, either because he means it or because he's trying to say 'I'm just like one of you', it's coming from a rich bloke, so it's bullshit.
His charity work is to alleviate rich peoples guilt. It's also funded by a hatred of working class people who "consume" and all that bollocks. What else are you meant to do under capitalism. He blames us, not capitalism and its inbuilt exploitation and colonialism which rich cunts like him benefit from. If he was serious about alleviating poverty in Africa and other continents capitalism would be his main target. It would dominate his discourse. He'd be funding anti capitalism groups, raising their profile etc. But he's not an anti capitalist, because that would mean giving up his wealth and the privileges it brings him and his family, in order to help other families. So instead he rails against the apathy and consumerism of a poor family from Bradford who he bullies and guilts a fiver off.
He's got no class analysis, that's the problem, along with a massive dose of white savourism and bolshie gobshiteism because he thinks he's fucking important, on a mission from god.
Jaz Coleman speaks well about him. He got close to him at the time to suss his character, and he reckons he's a sociopath.
