    Nice Words, Nadine.. Now Act! 


    The UK Culture Secretary has a knack for sensible sound-bites, but it’s hard to put much faith in a notorious flip-flopper.…

    Another Patelian U-Turner? Don’t Trust Dorries! 

    .

    Nadine Dorries MP

    oo

    However, she has a chance to prove that she’s not ‘all mouth and trousers, ‘ a phrase Yorkshiremen used to use before that sturdy Yorks spirit…

    Cricket Whiner ‘Employers Must Deal With Any Who Dispute My Yarn!’

    ..dissolved this year in pool of spilt whine.

    Nadine has just been interviewed by UK Pravda and admirably used her time on the BBC to criticise the left censorship system known as ‘cancel culture.’

    Good!

    But in the same report, we read that she is due to splurge a ton of tax-payers’ money!

    …Dorries also announced a further £107m as part of the Culture Recovery Fund to help almost 1,000 arts and heritage organisations continue their recovery from the pandemic.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-59305080 

    Now we know that much of the most cancerous ‘cancel’ cr-p has occurred among ‘arts and heritage organisations.’

    More Woko-Waste, York Uni This Time!

    Disrupt The Racist ETO!

    Of course I don’t know if those examples are included in her list of beneficiaries.

    But she should nevertheless stipulate that any ‘arts and heritage organisations’ that have engaged in wokery of any sort will be getting not a penny of public funding henceforth.

     

    .

    The National Gallery, the British Library and, especially, the British Museum….

    https://historyreclaimed.co.uk/sir-hans-sloane-the-british-museum-and-the-woke-war-against-british-history/

    …must be issued with similar directives.

    Such institutions should glorify, not denigrate, the British heritage,

    And don’t forget the horticultural heritage!

    Will Bojo Guard Gardens Against Ex-BBC Left Hack? 

    Moreover, if Nadine is sincere, she needs also to tell the Arts Council that if they waste their tax cash…

    .

    .

    Abolish the Arts Council – spiked

    ..

    ..on any project known to have got into ‘decolonisation’ or ‘slavery’ belly-aching, they must stand down, scrap the nonsense…

    …or have their funding ‘cancelled!’

    Indefinitely.

    Bojo’s ‘Arts’ Woke-Waste Escalates! 


    I’m sure most readers, like me, won’t have heard of this arrogant woman.

    00000

    Lubaina Himid with her work Old Boat, New Weather..Lubaina Himid
    … 

    ..who says tax-payers should just hand over cash to all sorts of ‘arts’ bodies but have no say in how it’s spent!

    Lubaina Himid, has reportedly, and if I may say so, insolently…

    cautioned the government against meddling in the membership of museum and gallery boards..

    https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2021/sep/27/lubaina-himid-tories-should-not-meddle-museum-boards

    If I pay a gardener to look after my favourite plants, I don’t expect him to pull ’em up and replace them with ones he thinks nicer.

    .

    .

    If I want my kitchen painted red, I would be displeased if I find the painter’s turned it blue!

    Maybe other people have trendier tastes but it’s MY money.

    And if the government spends my taxes on something, I expect the government to make sure some know-alls don’t get to do as they damn well please..

    But reading on, Himid herself’s on the take from the public purse, legally, of course, having just been ‘commissioned by the Government Art Collection to make prints that will hang on the walls of British diplomatic buildings around the world.’

    Lucky Old Lubaina, and maybe her drawing skills are grand, though getting a Turner Prize these days is no quarantee.

    One hopes her works do represent art, rather than pathetic crap such as

    The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living – a shark in formaldehyde by Damien Hirst – and My Bed, a dishevelled bed by Tracey Emin

    But what’s she been drawing, that’s persuaded Jellyfish Johnson…

    .

    ..

    …to lash out what’s bound to be a large fortune.

    Her print, Old Boat, New Weather, is a powerful, layered work exploring  themes that include slavery, colonial history, forced migration and climate change..

    .

    For God’s Sake, what kind of a gutless government has Britain got?

    What’s required are paintings of Trafalgar, Waterloo, Rourke’s Drift, The Somme..

    ….portraits of Clive, Wolfe, powerful representations of British glory.

    The Tories have the nerve to call themselves, ‘Conservatives?’
