You would never think we are in the worst financial mess since the war.
In August the ludicrous Tot Brill managed to burn through a million quid on the Exhibition Rd Olympics fiasco(The Dame is going through the accounts on this one ready to go public shortly) and last month it was Nour Festival for Arab Gays and Lesbians (£45k of Council Tax).
Now the Rotten Borough has announced an "Arts Grants Scheme". Organizations can apply for grants of £3,000 and individuals can apply for grants of £1,000 if they can do" high quality arts that benefits the Borough".
|BURNING OUR CASH|
Who will decide how our council taxes should be spent on this frippery? Officers of course. And the arts and crafts supremo, Cllr Paget-Brown, the "Great Glory Of London" man who likes to describe Holland Park Opera as just that. But he forgets to mention that it is £1 million of council tax every year that blows away in the wind to give Pooter his Glyndebourne in the Park.(Pooter likes people to think he is an opera buff: what a pathetically puffed up and pretentious little ex ciggie salesman he is!
