The government does not want you to know this, but I think you have a right to know.

Millions and millions of pounds of your hard-earned tax money is being completely and utterly wasted on pointless diversity and inclusion rubbish that you absolutely did not consent to.

There is a group called UK Research and Innovation that receives £8bn of your money every single year

It then gives your money to so-called academics so they can do research projects into hard-left, hyper-woke progressive rubbish.

Patrick Christys has hit out at funding for woke projects


Here are some examples:

You spent £842,000 on: The Europe That Gay Porn Built 1945-2000: How did the growing transnational circulation of gay male erotica and porn magazines in postwar Europe contribute to the development of a shared identity and sense of belonging among European gay men?

You spent £759k on a study into Comics and Race in Latin America.

You spent £809,000 was given to the University of Edinburgh for a project called - Remediating Stevenson: Decolonising Robert Louis Stevenson’s Pacific Fiction through graphic adaptation, arts education and community engagement.

You gifted just under £1m to the University of Westminster so they could look into FemIdeas: Decolonising Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in Higher Education.

Just to round this off: £177,422 was spent on Queer Music, Queer Theory, Queer Music Theory at the University of Southampton which poses the pressing question: If the composer is queer is their music queer too?

The Europe that Gay Porn Built

£841,830 was spent on the research 'The Europe that Gay Porn Built'


It brings me no joy at all to reveal to you that your hard-earned money, in the middle of a cost of living crisis, is being used as the dole for people with blue hair.

You go to work every day and pay your taxes so that somebody who probably wants to live in a warehouse commune in Hackney can afford to send their kids to private school.

It gets worse:

Arts Council England receives £445m in public funds a year - that money goes towards funding things like Femmes of Colour - a show described as ‘a riot of positivity and inclusivity’ where ‘white audience members are invited to check their privilege at the door’.

The people who receive this money are the same ones who scream and cry about government cuts.

“Oh no…there’s a £170 million euro post-Brexit funding shortfall piling misery on the UK creative sector”.

Articles like this: Inside Arts Council England’s devastating cuts.

But wait…there’s more: Local authorities have spent a total of almost £52 million on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion roles in the last three financial years.

The Civil service reportedly spent at least £250,000 on a diversity employment body called Vercida - a “tech platform aimed at jobseekers looking to work for employers that place diversity, inclusion and well-being at the top of the agenda”. They claim to “work with a wide range of other Government departments and public bodies to list government vacancies that keep diversity and equality at their core.”

I would like to thank journalist Charlotte Gill for doing a load of research into this.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. How on earth has a Conservative government that keeps banging on about woke and culture wars allowed this to happen?

You have the highest tax burden since World War Two. There is a cost of living crisis. Our public services are crumbling. But you and your loved ones are funding the Europe that Gay Porn Built and nonsense about comics and race in Latin America.

They are using the line that all left-wing people do when it comes to public money - they say they’re ‘investing it’…they’re not investing it. They’re giving it to hyper-woke deadbeat academics so they can fire it out of a rainbow-coloured cannon. Just remember that the next time you see how much tax is taken our of your payslip.
