'What do we want? - TAX PAYERS MONEY!'
'When do we want it? - NOW!'
(Glasgow looks remarkably like Washington DC these days...)
Protesters in Glasgow have staged a candlelight protest outside a theatre which is staging a play portraying Jesus as a trannie. (Not a small portable radio, the other kind...).
Fair enough, they have the right to protest just as the theatre group have the right to stage the play. I couldn't give a toss. But...
The play is part of a festival called 'Glasgay'. Yep, you guessed it. Glasgow's very own festival of bumming, rug munching and wanting to cut your knob off. Again, fairy enough, (did you see what I did there?), who am I to criticise if that floats your boat.
The festival is being funded by Glasgow City Council, (which in turn is funded by the tax payer), and the Scottish Arts Council, (which is receiving £48,140,000 of it's £61, 060,000 budget this year from the Scottish Government, other wise known as the tax payer).
So, council tax payers of Glasgow, next time you walk past a school badly in need of repairs or a community centre ear marked for closure bear in mind come election time the priorities of your Labour led council.
Update - there is also this.
