28.35 million for a painting !
ART..the goverment will waver 20.5 million pounds in tax to keep a painting in the u.k.
It has only been exhibited once, the goverment have put a export ban on the PRIVATE sale.
The museum who want to purchase the said paintng say ''It would be a great revalation to the public and manet scholars ''
WE are all supposed to be in it together, well with all the cut backs and austerity. Many people loosing their
livelyhoods, living standards possibly lost forever you would think the powers that be would welcome a sizeable windfall.
But no, we must save the art.
IT does'nt matter about all the suffering and hardship that people are going through do'es it.
It just says IT'S NOT WHAT YOU KNOW, IT'S WHO YOU KNOW !
Do these people live in the real world ? I think not. They live in their world.
