MCB not consulted
The BBC has more quotes from both the artist and the MCB on the Tate’s decision not to display “God is Great” (see below).
Apparently, the MCB felt a little bit left out of the decision-making process. Poor darlings:
We would have preferred to have been consulted by Tate Britain before the decision was taken to remove John Latham’s piece.
Sometimes presumptions are incorrectly made about what is unacceptable to Muslims and this can be counter-productive.
Come to think of it, MWW would have preferred to have been consulted by the BBC before the decision was taken to ask the self-important clowns* of the MCB for their opinion about anything. Don’t they realise how important and representative of our community we are?
