Arts subsidy sucks

“Why not abolish the lot? Writers never vote Liberal anyway!”


Magazine editor on the arts


Jeff Sparrow: For many conservatives, Australia’s literary infrastructure essentially serves as a giant teat suckling all manner of whinging and carping environmentalists, lesbians and Gramscian Marxists. You can see how the argument goes: Why not abolish the lot? Writers never vote Liberal anyway!

Sinclair Davidson: Hard to go past that logic.
