Where There's Muck There's Brass

draculaLabour attack dog Michael Dugher went off on one in the Mirror this weekend, slating the “snobbery” of government arts cuts and the decision to award the British Federation of Brass Bands a grant of of just £23,000 last year. So how much did the Federation receive under the obviously less snobbish and much more generous Labour government? According to their accounts, in 2009 the Arts Council grant to the BFBB was a whopping £23,941, while in 2008 it was £23,313. Cuts? What cuts?
