Never been a fan of her work but understand her stance

"It's not about a political thing, it's a moral, ethical thing," she said.
"People had to watch their loved ones be buried on their telephone, or be cremated on their telephone," she added, noting how Her Majesty, The Queen had "sat there stoically alone" during Prince Philip's funeral.


This government, they need more compassion," she continued, with reference to the work's title. "That's what they need, not more passion, they don't need more party atmospheres.
"Most of us are obeying the rules in every single way because this pandemic has affected everybody so terribly - whether it's financially, whether it's health-wise, you know, whether it's people dying, and this government doesn't seem to care about that."

Cannot argue with that really

Don't blame the weirdo. I wouldn't want my work hanging in a Turkish brothel lookalike tribute.

Lol @ Togo !

The unmade bed is where Boris keeps his hair at night TTT. :))
I admire her candour and her stance on this topic.

It's ok if I don't insult her I hope?
She's a self-publicist, which is what you need to be to make money out of stuff which is essentially worthless. I don't blame her, but I don't admire her.
I’m surprised it wasn’t in a skip 5 years ago.
When it is, it will probably be worth double.
Cant throw it in the skip, thats where Cummings gets dressed.

It would seem her art, her "weirdness"...is more important that the words she's said.
Maybe pretend those words were said by someone you admire...would you still be so critical, or making light.
No compassion seems to be the way to go...
I think we've got the wrong idea about this News thread Pasta.
Well...at least I feel like I'm in good company Mamya ;)
Number 10 has been desperately seeking a method to tactfully dispose of this junk & it's now handed to the present incumbents on a platter by none other than its creator.

Definitely another party called for - BYOB !

Perhaps she thinks people who work for the government weren't similarly affected when loved ones died. We were all separated from our families.

If they were similarly affected maybe they had 16 illegal wakes in Downing St or nearby ?

Does not sound like the folks in Downing St were too similarly affected really ?


You're probably right, stickybottle. None of the Downing Street staff have parents and siblings they couldn't see - and its guaranteed none of them had people in hospital or grannies in care homes they couldn't visit. Makes you wonder what all the hysteria is about.

Yes I probably am
If they did have relatives etc in care homes one can only imagine they would have been too dumb or hungover or organising the next one to make a trip to see the rellies through the window

You really ought to stop making excuses for them now though
You sound too much like Boris
He is very sketchy about the details too
