Title: Tracey Emin tries to cheer us all up
Post by: sickandtired on 22 Jan 2013 01:35PM
Here's a news item that should either infuriate you or have you rolling around on the floor, your sides aching uncontrollably:

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/art/news/tracey-emin-warns-of-rioting-in-the-streets-over-marginalisation-of-art-in-education-8460606.html

Tracey Emin, famous for making a fortune out of an unmade bed and various scribbled images of 'lady bits', and for threatening to leave the country if Labour got in again and raised the taxes on her 'hard earned' cash', is claiming there may be rioting in the streets.

NOT because the Government is more or less murdering the sick and the disabled.

NOT because hard-working people who rely on benefits to make up a living wage are set to be the next ones in the Government's sights.

No...wait for it... because they might be taking Art off the school syllabus!

Stop it, Tracey! Please! My poor stomach muscles! No!

Some people just don't know where to draw the line.

' ... she is one of the few from the artist community to admit backing the Tories in the run up to the last election.'

Say no more.

Mind you, I was hoping that Labour had got back in.  If she's an artist then Picasso was a decorator!

Isn't she professor of drawing or something like that?

It's when I read things like this that I wish we had raspberry-blowing sound FX...

A juicy one headed in Ms Emin's direction anyway!

The only thing Tracey Emin could do that would cheer me up is to disappear completely.

One of her most famous (and notorious) exhibits at the Tate Gallery was her unmade bed.  Pfft!  I create one of those every single morning!
