Poor Dom Joly

The Independent’s Dom Joly and I disagree over what constitutes art…

Sirs,

I have a huge amount of sympathy for Mr Joly in his irritation at his original art being plagiarized by the Belgians(Independent on Sunday this week). I am unsure, however, whether it is the fault of our beloved European neighbours, or our own government for not allowing the copyrighting of mindless stupidity. Clearly a case of one man’s art being another’s toilet paper. Perhaps there can be some sort of UN protection scheme for purveyors of parody of the bleedin’ obvious?
