Perhaps David Starkey is right and the Queen is a philistine. But as he churns out shows about monarchy, why trash the brand? He accuses the Queen of agreeing with Goebbels that \’every time I hear the word "culture", I reach for my revolver\’. So he will forgive me if I point out that the quotation wasn\’t Goebbels\’s. It originated with Nazi playwright Hanns Johst.
And if I may complete the corrections, it\’s is said of Goring, not Goebbels, and it is not revolver, but "Browning".
If is, you see a pune*, a play on words.
*Pterry spelling: and yes, Browning the American poet and Browning the gun. Which is what Goring is said to have carried rather than a Luger.
