And so, last October, the government met and published their thoughts on how they were going to spend the country’s money over the next three years.

And the optimists were rewarded. Surprising even the hopeful, there was an inflation level increase of 2.7% to the Arts Council.

Of course, the money that had already been taken away wasn’t coming back – but no more holes were torn into the hull of the great ship Art.

As others have so wisely remarked, times of bliss and stability can never last forever, and this period of happiness was perhaps shorter than even the miserable had feared.
