The Government Art Collection has spent £556,911 of taxpayers money on new artworks in the past year, including £14,000 on a piece of art made from old lightbulbs for an embassy.
Made from old plastic bottles and low energy light bulbs, held together with electric flex, it resembles a tangled string of Christmas lights.
Yet this light fitting has been brought by the Government at a cost to the public purse of £14,000 so that it can be put on display at the new British High Commission in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Nice to know the criminals have art on their wall while our innocent elderly freeze and starve to death. Remember, when the next hospital or school closes, that half a million pounds of YOUR money was on art for the criminals in Wasteminster.
HOW DOES THAT FEEL?
