  • What the flipperty-jib has this got to do with house prices? I like a bit of mental gymnastics but even I can’t make this one relevant other than some very tenuous council tax link. But even at that what would £3,500 add up to across the burgh in question per household as a reduction.

    Just the Wail with another pointless bee in it’s bonnet. Boom boom. Available for children’s parties.

  • If taxpayer spending on ‘art’ was reduced to zero for a few years, until the deficit was cleared and the economy was growing again, I don’t think we’d be any the poorer, and some self-styled ‘artists’ would doubtless have found a proper job..
