In February, the crass twerps of Wandsworth Council voted to close Wandsworth Museum and two local libraries, due to a shortfall in Government handouts. (Gordon Brown, the most loathed fat-cat Tory Chancellor ever, is determined not only to make the poor poorer and the rich richer, but also to axe anything the poor might enjoy.) However, philanthropists Michael and Dorothy Hintze have written to Wandsworth Council pledging £2m to keep the museum open. The Hintze Family Charitable Foundation proposes that the museum be run by an independent trust with support from local volunteers. Will councillors accept this idea or carry on doing Gordon's dirty work?
