Nice to know they also waste money in the UK

A piece from the The Times of London shows how easy it is to waste money on the arts.
A Japanese artist has been paid about $15,000 of British taxpayers' money to drink 48 bottles of lager, and then fall off a wooden beam.

The "performance," which took place at an arts centre in Cardiff, Wales, has outraged members of the municipal council and caused bafflement among the public, many of whom do exactly that without getting paid every Friday and Saturday night.

David Davies, a Conservative member of the Welsh Assembly, described the performance art show s "the biggest waste of money in the world."
Well, perhaps in the UK, but not the world. Afterall, we spent millions on sponsorship in Quebec, and opinion polls in Quebec are still where they were a decade ago.
