Knowing that Te Papa was wrong for the National Collections and never doing anything to get it right
Commissioning a review of cultural infrastructure and ignoring it.
Letting the cultural bureaucracy grow in size in direct proportion to losing any national relevance.
Pretending that the Labour led government was arts friendly.
Trying to introduce a totally ineffective resale royalty on works of art while ignoring more immediate and effective ways of rewarding artists for the public use of their work.
Trying to insert the draconian S92a of the copyright act which judged guilt and punished on complaint.
Letting the cultural spend grow out of proportion to a massive imbalance of $130 per head in Wellington to $7.50 per head for the rest of the country
Not sure I will be holding my breath.
