THE arts are ‘relentlessly left-wing’, former Culture Minister Ed Vaizey lamented last week.

Giving the annual chairman’s lecture at the Royal Society of Arts, the Wantage MP moaned there was ‘no pro-fox hunting play.

‘Indeed, there are no plays about over-powerful trade unions letting down their members... and no pro-Brexit play attacking unaccountable Brussels bureaucrats building a European superstate.’

The world has, after all, been crying out for an EU-themed production.

One imagines a West End hit akin to Les Misérables, with hits including ‘I Dreamed a Brexit’, ‘One Regulation More’, or ‘Empty Chairs at Empty Tables In All of Britain’s Restaurants’.
