And when did they build that erm BBC building? Art deco = 1930 = great depression and Jarrow march and all that? That's outrageous. I bet the BBC gave easily £100 for that. And would they get that for it today? Don't make me larf.If people insist on buying beautiful things, these degenerates will go on making them. Then where will we all be? People should spend their money on newspapers, that's what. Critics. Art critics. People who do something useful. Let all the artists sign on the dole and get paid for doing nowt. Serve them right. Tell you what, BBC. I'll swop you for some real art. I've got half a cow here in formaldehyde. A real statement. Worth....ooooooooo..... I'd say about 3.9m. Look great up there for a century or so. Tell you what;I'll throw in a pile of bricks and a pair of dirty knickers. I'm being a fool but - go on then.Or - how about an ART critic in formaldehyde? ?? Yes, of course it's bloody ugly. So would you be, thinking like that all your life. That's what's so grippingly contemporary about it! The pointless bile, the half-formed thoughts. Says it all. Rant? Nope, this is a POEM. I await my cheque.

My own art which I would want to submit was inspired by his work.

And then I said those things above.So now you know. You probably do not believe it. Me neither!

Kings 7.14"and another one said;"I'm levelling with you"and another said, I think;"Glad we've got that squared up".and another said;"It can be hard finding a lawyer"and another said"I find 20-odd deaths offensive"and, so far, it appears that these things are considered "defamatory" to unknown persons. I have asked the moderators to clarify this.
