Boss of UK Film Council Resigns But Culture Minister and Creative Industries Minister Still Minded to Back Rapists With Tax Payer Monies over Nurses, Police and Film Makers.
Jonathan Stuart-Brown for Save The British Film Industry.
John Woodward has announced that he is to stand down as Chief Executive Officer of the UK Film Council. He is getting out just before the full betrayal of The evil UK Film Council UK film making becomes so clear even the luvvies and Screen Daily might notice, maybe even The Culture Department.
Why is The Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Creative Industries Minister Ed Vaizey determined to promote gang rape on the taxpayer ?
We will get to Woodward and The UKFC. Be patient. Suffice it to say that the above is the real tone of the hundreds of millions of taxpayers money they wasted. The regional film quangos even more so as they destroyed the chances of a multi-billion private sector film industry in the regions because it threatened their parasitic existence and truly perverted taste.
The background does matter and The Culture Secretary and Culture Minister may yet REPENT OF THE FOLLY WHICH WILL MORALLY STAIN THE GOVERNMENT FATALLY AND KILL THE BIG SOCIETY AND KILL UK FILM MAKING…BY THE CUT THEY SEEM TOO GUTLESS OR CLUELESS TO MAKE. The cut of the tax funded parasitic bodies which have driven away hundreds of millions of Hollywood monies each year from their regions. If the Culture Department civil servants have not put the document in the ministers’ red boxes, then tough. They are the boss – allegedly – and are supposed to be making cuts NOT promoting gang rape on the taxpayer. But our sources tell us that they are minded to endorse the people which made this and who are extremely proud of it and promising very much more of the same ALL paid for by taxes while vital services and real public sector jobs are cut.
Let us just say that our sources they are minded in the next few weeks to back the failed and hated and often extremely corrupt regional film quangos, describing many as ”excellent”. They thought ‘Screen East’ was excellent. then the police closed it down last week viz a viz a major embezzlement.
There should now be a full scale police investigation of all the regional film quangos and scrutiny of the books and CEO and Finance officers private businesses on the side.
We officially call for one.
The scandals are looming but hapless Department of Culture staff describe them as “excellent” just like they described “Screen East”. Maybe the Defence Barristers will mention that in mitigation at any trial. Maybe The Culture Secretary will turn up or his Permanent Secretary and be a character reference. Every Conservative MP, every Liberal Democrat MP must wonder why do they desperately want to inherit the tremendous scandals of a previous government ? Why do they want to destroy every iota of credibility that The Government Ministers have in saying any cut is necessary when they can find millions to promote gang rape and joining drug gangs ?
The regional film quangos existed to support the cabal – of which UKFC was the highest expression and most sophisticated manifestation – to stop the rest of the UK having any chance of a real film industry LEST they pull it off and move the focus away from the best elite in club in West London.
They had to stop private sector investment buying up cheap lands in the Midlands, North, Wales, South-West etc and renting them out to Hollywood to use. They had to stop sound stages being built or ‘Pirates of The Caribbean’ might be being filmed in Swindon or near Cardiff or Swansea or Wrexham or Stoke or Wolverhampton or Leicester or Peterborough or Salford or Blackburn or Newcastle or Sunderland or Sheffield. They had to stop mass job creation fuelled by the private sector including Hollywood Studios.
The UKFC needed placemen in regional film councils – imbeciles, deadbeats, venal greedy people with no passion and no experience of the film industry let alone personal contacts with Hollywood and Bollywood studio bosses and A List stars. But with packages outside London which before they fiddled expenses were well over £100 000, it helped find the sort they needed.
UKFC were utterly brilliant in who they got in these positions. They were also good at PR. So you got something for your taxpayer hundreds of millions.
Of course they screwed the regions to defend the South-East cabal but in turn got out manipulated by ‘the devil’ as John Whittaker’s staff call him. He was determined – as the country’s leading and longest asset stripper – to sell off Pinewood and Shepperton for around £2 billion and use the brandname as a giveaway to Malaysia, China, Qatar, whoever would invest in the 224 companies he has which urgently need big cash injections. So getting rid of the UK based Pinewood and Shepperton while giving the brandname and sales arm to Third World countries is a great deal for Whittaker – although it does kill Hollywood investment in The UK and lose 30 000 British based film jobs.
By 2012 it will all be clear for people to see.
What should The Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister do ?
Immediately demand that The Culture Secretary close all regional film quangos especially the one which wants to spend more taxpayer millions on promoting gang rape.
Remove the money and remove the ‘official status’ of ‘lead agency for film, tv and digital media’ from these bodies in the regions.
Give the ‘official status’ to no-one UNLESS a private sector company will do it for free for 18 months. The Cultue Department has received offers like this but brushed them aside as the private sector bodies have no interest in suppressing film making in their regions nor kow-towing to London. They have no interest in promoting gang rape, so they get no meetings.
Encourage every region to build sound stages and state of the art sets (to give The UK a new film making inward investment usp) . The Lottery Money should ONLY be used for this.
If any Lottery Money is still put into movies, it should only be first time people to make showreels. If they are any good, they should never need it again. If not, they should make way for the next person to get their chance.
Of course the defenders of UKFC and regional film quangos are the serial failures who see this money as their multi-millionaire welfare benefit cheat lifestyle. Alas The Culture Department are supremely keen to let these people gang bang the nation.
Anyway back to the nonsense which excites an increasingly hopeless Screen Daily who should be covering this BUT far too focused on getting UKFC or other quango advertising to maintain its own short term survival.
John Woodward has announced that he is to stand down as Chief Executive Officer of the UK Film Council.
So what ? The UK Film Council (after Alan Parker left) had nothing to do with UK film making. It was just there to help property developers get greenbelt land for houses and to help Malaysia, Canada, Germany, France, China over take the UK usp for Hollywood : sound stages.
The UKFC under Woodward were trying to get the UK tax credit to apply to films made in Malaysia. How much of a hint do you need ?
The UKFC existed to stop the regions developing bigger and stronger film industries than West London. The regional film quango placemen existed to ensure the colonies did not successfully revolt.
The Culture Department should be axed itself if it endorses regional film quangos, and endorses tax payers money spent promoting gang rape of frightened women dragged from their cars.
This is the perfect time for Nick Clegg to show that The Deputy Prime Minister job really means something. It is the perfect time for Danny Alexander, Chief Secretary to The Treasury to show he is an outstanding Minister.
If Jeremy Hunt and Ed Vaizey promote gang rape while nurses get axed, police get axed, disabled care workers get axed, Winter fuel allowances for the elderly get axed, firemen and fire stations get axed…..then The Government must accept that their credibility and reputation will be fatally destroyed.
There is still time to make cuts which film makers are calling for. There is time to make wise cuts and save vital jobs elsewhere.
