Very Creative.

Mr Smith feels he must ask the obvious question which is why if Creative Scotland could be established without requiring legislation the Scottish Government had to waste it's time and that of the Scottish Parliament by trying to do it using its legislative powers, rather than by ... er .. just setting it up?

"Creative Scotland, the proposed new cultural funding body, could be established without the passing of a bill through parliament, it was claimed yesterday. Plans to establish the successor to the Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen ended in disarray this week as the Culture Bill, drafted to establish the body, was surprisingly voted down in the Scottish Parliament."
