Tracey Emin And Political Allegiances

Tracey Emin, speaking at a preview of a show if her work at the Hayward Gallery yesterday said, in defence of voting Tory that:

"and remember, Tory people are massive collectors of the arts. For a lot if my friends who think I'm crazy for voting for the Tories - I want to know who buys their work? Who arethe biggest philanthropists? I promise you, it is not Labour voters."


So now I know what dictates Tracey Emin's political allegiances; It's anyone who pays the bills.

So that leaves the door wide open for the fascist party, if it took to patronising artists.

Ah too harsh - I am sure she would draw the line there. She could probably sell the line as well. To the Tories.

I am not in favour of my writing here. I am against people who constantly attack other people's behaviour. I should be saying - "Good for you Tracey Emin, getting those right-wing Tories to spend their money on something arty rather than on something repressive."

So good for you Trac…

Look At Those Shoes

She was standing on the escalator in front of us and my wife motioned to the woman's shoes.

I took a quick photo with the GF1 as the escalator went up.

At the top we looked at the shop that used to be open, and oh, oh, it had closed down.

Another victim of the times.
