Just seen Alan Yentob on the TV quizzing the various parties on there position on the arts. While the impact on the average citizen is not that great, this gets exposure on mainstream TV.
What I would like to see is the very real and draconian provision of copyright enforcement, surveillance, and patent law, is having on ordinary people. Especially as this will probably have a major effect on our culture and on the arts than any of the issues discussed in the Culture Show.
There is an opportunity here to really push these issues to the fore in the coming election frenzy.
