i should not find this funny...

... but I love the fact that the BBC headline, 'UK Film Council to be abolished' is followed almost immediately by the line, 'UK Film Council chairman Tim Bevan called it "a bad decision".'

(Incidentally, and I have said it before, in a country which has an ongoing paranoia about its manufacturing base, why does the arts not focus more heavily on the fact that it is a major manufacturing industry? It is adding value to raw materials by the use of time, skill and intellectual property, and the resulting artefacts then get sold.)
