    He wasn’t being blamed for the film flop; Creative Scotland obfuscated its role in funding it. (And why should it have? If audiences don’t like a film, it’s hardly the funder’s fault.) But it’s really because CS has gone down the Arts Council route re decision-making and lack of communication; you could have linked to this article, from two months ago:

    These are interesting times in the Arts in Scotland.This link is to the original letter signed by 100 distinguished Scottish arts practitioners. Subsequently another 300 + signed up.
