Buffoon of the Week

Richard Dawkins in this week's New Statesman: 'I read novels for entertainment rather than for edification. I never quite understood why you would read fiction to understand the human condition.'

Noel Gallagher made a similarly idiotic though more expletive driven point about fiction last week.
Dawkins buffoonery is also evident in his theory of the 'selfish gene' which has provided yet more ballast for social Darwinists and free-market fundamentalists.
