So all is well.
Antonia Byatt in her letter published today [yesterday] in the TIMES (Arts Council: we support poetry) says "We have also recently invested more than £1 million in poetry for the Olympics, much of it engaging young people."So it's all OK because writing a few poems about the Olympics will benefit young people so much more, according to Ms Byatt. That's what poetry is all about, £1,000,000 for that, and nothing for the PBS, NALD, Poetry Trust, Arc, Litfest etc etc. Let's hope the kids bring home a few medals for ACE to display in their trophy cabinet. What a wonderful cabinet that will be, and think of the heads along the wall!
As if even ACE believed that! Shame on them for even daring to boast with such drivel. The government glove puppet speaks unto the people.
