Funding must be more evenly spread

Arts funding must be more evenly spread throughout the country:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-29897903

But this must not mean simply handing over money to local arts groups which do not have the leadership of arts organisations in London and mostly churn out bland rubbish.

For instance, building a branch of the National Theatre in Peterborough and having performances from the National Theatre in London moving on a weekly basis to Peterborough is one thing.

Simply giving more money to the Key Theatre in Peterborough so that they can produce even more bland trash is quite another.

And beware that many regional arts organisations have become infiltrated by lefties who will divert the funding into agitprop.
