Nelson's right to make 'art luvvies' live in real world
It is amusing to watch the 'art luvvies' in hysteria because our esteemed Culture Minister Nelson McCausland suggested that our museums should reflect more of our local culture.
There is already a wonderful William Conor painting of The Twelfth in the Ulster Museum.
Nelson McCausland, or any minister, certainly cannot and must not dictate what should go into our museums, but he has a right to make suggestions.
Sometimes the 'art luvvies' need their cages rattled to remind them of real life.
