Half a Million Pounds for a Rock!

The idiocy of a country, borrowing 3 billion pounds a week , spending half a million pounds towing a rock around in a barge in the name of art, beggars belief. It shows the complete disconnect from reality of modern governments when spending the public's money , not just in the UK but around the world.. It is time to say enough is enough and for tax-payers to demand that the waste stops now. Events like this should be ferreted out and publicised to shame our leaders into action.

A Devon MP has said £500,000 spent on an Arctic island Olympic arts project could have been better invested in community arts projects.
Part of the island will be transported on a barge around the coast of the South West.
Geoffrey Cox, Conservative MP for Torridge and West Devon, called it an "extraordinary folly".
The Arts Council said the "remarkable visual sculpture" would open up a debate on global warming.
Artist Alex Hartley and 18 volunteers excavated about six tonnes of material from an island exposed by a retreating glacier on the Svalbard archipelago, north of Norway.
