I love the Lumiere Festival.
But the language of priorities, and all that.
Lumiere, which is put on by the County Council, is coming back to Durham in 2017.
A year that will have begun with the sacking of all 2700 of the County Council's Teaching Assistants, followed by their re-engagement on a 23 per cent pay cut.
If there is no money for them, then there is certainly none for something that, however nice it may be, is essentially a vanity project.
