"Some events are beyond art" -

Good idea, but which ones, and who is to say? We probably need some sort of National Committee to issue licences to soi-disant artists.

Then we can weed out those aiming to make money from entertainments constructed of unacceptable material - child abuse and murder, warfare, rape, religion, domestic violence, unfair social relations, mining & shipping accidents and natural catastrophes and so on - backed up with lethal legal force.

Andy Hamilton informed us on Have I Got News For You last week that he was chided by clear-thinking Government minister Hazel Blears, who said that clever "wordsmiths" like him shouldn't go around offending people by deploying their fancy words.
