What do parties think we’re talking about with ‘arts & culture’?
Labour - ‘artists, freelancers’
SNP & LibDem - ‘live music, festivals’
Tories - ‘opera, railway museums & agricultural shows’ #EmpressOfBlandings
HMG say most money will go to Britain’s “crown jewels”… ‘V&A, Albert Hall’
I wonder where all these places are??
£1.59bn funding: HMG claims “to support freelancers” (like CeruleanSounds.com). But Secretary Dowden said that min. grant was £1m.
Minister Dinenage’s explanation: “big institutions will bring up ecosystem”. Might aswell have said ‘trickle down’!!
