BP Pledges £10m

Oil giant BP has pledged £10m over the next five years for its continuing sponsorship of the British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Opera House and Tate Britain, all in London (title link). An 8,000-strong petition was handed to the Tate calling for an end to BP sponsorship; but Sir Christopher Frayling, former head of Arts Council England, has warned that arts bodies cannot be "squeamish" about where their money comes from in the current financial crisis (CLICK). I've illustrated this post with the winner of Greenpeace UK's 2010 competition to find a new logo for BP (CLICK). It says it all.
