The War on Cheese

No, that headline is not a joke, this is serious. You’ve seen the war on drugs, the war on terror, the war on Christmas, well now we are at war with cheese!

Apparently somebody called Rob Williamson, who is attending a seminar held by Arts Council England on their doomed Catalyst Arts project, said, out loud, in a place where people could hear him, that;

“we spend more on cheese than we do on charitable giving”

Mr Williamson is the Chief Executive of the Community Foundation so let’s give him a medal because he just solved the arts funding problem. Let’s go to war on cheese, not with guns, but with taxes.

Put an arts tax on cheese and we’re golden, much like the cheese itself. We even made a poster (of course you did! Ed!) to help out with the uprising against farmers, cows and people from Wisconsin.


If this is the level of thinking in fundraising then, seriously, we are all screwed!
