Excellent use of public money

"Supported by the Scottish Arts Council" ?

I'm sure a pensioner in Glasgow waiting for a hip operation because of an underfunded hospital will see this use of his tax Pound as reasonable.


we need more than medicine

art is important too...
i'd say more public money is wasted in PFI, where public money is screwed by corporate business.


Art and my gran

anyway, my gran in glasgow would disagree with your easy stereotyping of pensioners. she might not be 100% fit anymore but she likes art and ideas...


that's right dave - no arts project should ever get funded right?!

of course all cultural funding is a waste of time. ahem.

if you really want to talk about arts funding then it's more yer high profile toff temples like the royal opera house - funded by us all, subsidising the minority toffs who like opera.

anyway that's NOT THE POINT OF THIS POST IS IT. Stop trolling and trying to turn every post on indymedia into an argument!

OPEN SOURCE - YES. gets my vote. and my cash :-)
