    Subsidise, verb: to support an organisation or activity financially.
    Why are you writing in bold? Hard to see under the bed sheet?

    because you're still dodging the question
    why did you write those words in that order here in relation to this particular story
    what is your point?? don't be shy now, back up your point

    Well I thought it was clear from the context. Can you specify which part you didn't understand?

    coward, waste of time
    it's not clear
    giving you a chance to explain your post

    I wrote those words in that particular order to illustrate the points clearly made in the rest of the paragraph about how local authorities will use the control they can exert when they try to corrall a free capitalist system like entertainment to benefit themselves, their political policies or to accrue money in opposition to what most people want.

    If you don't believe me, how is it that polls record that most residents want to preserve their city's green spaces yet every year there are less and less? How come, all over the country, people in cities are having to pay to park outside their own houses. You reckon that's what they want? Town councils often work in opposition to the will of the people - I hardly thought that was contentious.

    Now this is a far longer answer than you deserve as I can only 'explain' my words to you if you specify which bit you don't understand. A generalised 'wtf' is an exclamation
    with one of the worst epithets attached.

    That's just trolling.

    as you're still dodging my question, i'll repeat it

    could you explain this part of your posted comment?

    "the next thing, they'll be subsidising bands with weird sexual preferences"

    I'd like this answered as well.

    Have you ever been to Cardiff Cacadores? And seeing as you singled the place out, can you explain what makes Cardiff so different to any other city? Why is it, in particular, "such a bore"?

    I just answered it.

    When city councils start controlling the culture, they often use their power of patronage either to accrue money, power or to further their political agenda against the wishes of the electorate. So in that sentence there's an example of the type of musician whom the council might use in that way.

    No one else is having a problem understanding it. It really is just you.

    Happy New Year

    You do not speak for anyone else, and no, you have explained nothing. In fact the last part of your third sentence in post #1362 does not even parse properly.

    Yes. And? Is there a point there?
    ''and no, you have explained nothing. In fact the last part of your third sentence in post #1362 does not even parse properly''
    '' I've explained nothing? " And you talk about being able to parse?! How about using English? And logic? Why would anyone want to describe 'nothing' outside of a thesis on Zeno?

    You do know that 'parse' means to describe syntax by breaking a sentence up into its component parts? For the purposes of grammatical erudition? So, er, if you can't parse it that would be, er, your error. Wouldn't it?

    If you mean, does it make grammatical sense (and I'm just guessing that's what you mean; it is very hard to tell), then we'll say yes it does. Here's a clue: look up the difference between an object and a subject.

    Hope this helps. Happy New Year.

    The point, you clown is that you insinuated that another poster was the only one who was having trouble understanding. I know it's an effort to attempt to goad as is usually the case with lamearse trolls such as yourself but it really is a poor effort. 0/10. Having reread your post I can see what you are attempting to say (with no supporting evidence), but it reads very poorly and yes I do know what parse means. :)

    Thanks. The relentless rain and overall greyness adds a certain filmic quality to the occasion. If I'm going to feel miserable I may as well have the full weather ensemble!
