Parliament should have more say over fun

Given my previous posting about scrapping the Ministry of Fun, I think this story is worth linking to.

I remain sceptical as to why the Government needs to be involved with culture and sport at all, and why it can’t be devolved to Parliament, especially while we have a license fee funded public service broadcasting service. As the Lords say, the relationship between the Beeb and government is just a little bit too cosy.

UPDATE: I appreciate this story is about the DTI (which itself bring the DCMS into question), but can anyone explain to me why the music industry can’t sort this out itself and needs government intervention?
