Eager to know how the House of Common’s Committee on Culture, Media and Sport is going? Go on, yes you are! Well, basically the Arts Council are getting a thorough going-over from the likes of Dr Tiffany Jenkins, Norman Lebrecht and David Lee (the “maverick” ex-editor of Art Review and the current editor of that well-known arts mag “The Jackdaw”). Here’s the uncorrected transcript of the latest session, and scroll down halfway to get past the boring stuff about heritage to Tom Watson’s question “What’s so bad about the Arts Council?”
(nb – just added full transcript below in comments).
Our favourite bits are David Lee offering to send ex-chicklit novelist and now surprisingly rather sharp Tory MP Louise Bagshawe the last 8 copies of The Jackdaw (she refuses).
