I wasn't that fond of his work, but at least he had the good grace to actually know how to paint, and a tendency to put arms and legs in the right places.

One less argument against the evil conceptacons of Hirst and Emins et al.

And goodness, you changed a link because someone doesn't approve of the Daily Mail?

I find the Guardian brings me out in vomiting, but won't be bothered even though you used that link. Tch tch Guardianista's and their drawing room socialist stances.

Hirst and Emin are two of my favourite artists ;)

I personally think the Daily Mail is journalistic bullshit and it offends me deeply (I'm a trained journalist). Take away Murdoch owned newspapers and really what you have left is the Guardian ;) Nothing political about it, though if being socialist is a bad thing I'm quite content being bad. It's better than being Tory ;)

political opinions always differ :)

I am also a trained journalist, incidentally xD

I think politics should stay out of journalism myself, and consider the guardian at least as offensive as the daily mail is capable of being.

Bidisha is a shining example of that...her lord of the rings assessment alone is offensive xD

and theres Tory and Tory, same way there's Socialist and Socialist xD
