Makes a lot more sense post-Weinstein, I’ll bet.
Never let this die.
There’s your rape culture. The upper-middle screwing everyone else.
“Clinton was honored by the Children Defense Fund in September 2013 for being “a tireless voice for children.”
You couldn’t make it up.
Say… is Hollywood paying their “fair share” of taxes, like, ever?
Q. to Mr Clooney.
You shouldn’t be asking actors and actresses how much they make, but how much their productions paid to the taxpayer watching them.
“Michael Moore sued Bob and Harvey Weinstein for creative accounting to deprive him of his share of profits for the film Fahrenheit 9/11. Eventually, Moore reached a settlement with the Weinsteins and the lawsuit was dropped.”
“A WB receipt was leaked online, showing that the hugely successful movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix ended up with a $167 million loss on paper.”
Where do you think Rowling got her fortune?
They actually take taxpayer money in credits.
Why do you think actors are so wealthy?
If actors didn’t have unions, they’d be poor – but unions are nationalistic and exclusive. One rule for them….
Then again, The Royals do it. Markle will fit right in.
St. Apple is on there.
Oh, but “drama is under-funded”, the Guardian constantly cry.
Well, maybe they could fund themselves out of their profits.
Like every other company.
Over 1,700 results.
Meanwhile, on the topic of fucking up schools, Tories value French over engineering, deliberately ruining the working class by treating them like the middle-class. This way, they can hire foreigners at slave wages with no guilt because the natives “don’t want to” do those jobs they aren’t qualified for.
“The school is considering whether to lose other subjects such as engineering and construction from its options for 14- to 16-year-olds.”
Why is there a shortage? We need more actors!
“Where are these pupils going to find that freedom of expression elsewhere?”
….Literally anywhere? Going to the local theatre as a hobby? Community theatre?
I know enough people in theatre that this line was unintentionally hilarious. Shakespeare in the park? YOUTUBE? Like teenagers need an excuse to show off. Technically, live video is performance art. They now stream theatre performances live so you try to deny it, Cumbersnatch.
A teacher from Rotherham (no shit) says
““In my area, school is often the only place children have access to art. They aren’t from families who will go out to a gallery. They can’t afford to go to the theatre. The things that are being removed from them are vital – this is their only access to experiences that are going to enrich their lives.”
They could stop subsidizing theatre tickets for everyone and just make them free to children.
Why is America taking all the engineers for Silicon Valley?
Why can’t Britain compete with its own industry? Since we invented it?
It’s a mystery, folks.
The middle class mocks how classist this prole-funded hobby is.
