Philistines at the Department of Energy & Climate Change

Or so it would seem:

"Mr. Vara: To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change which works of art from the Government Art Collection each Minister in his Department has selected for display in a private office.

Mr. Mike O'Brien: No Minister within this Department has currently selected any works of art from the Government Art Collection for any private office".

So Miliband minor, O'Brien hisself, 'Lord' Hunt and Joan Ruddock work in offices with no adornments bar, presumably, date planners festooned with pink stars, yellow circles etc and maybe a clock or two. Or maybe there is that Reagan / Thatcher 'Gone with the Wind' parody above Ruddock's desk? A sorry state of affairs, and it denies me further harmless pleasure in dissecting their tastes. Mind you, I am beginning to wonder whether inveterate quizzer Shalesh Vara is asking these questions as the various makeover TV programmes are failing to provide inspiration for his own office.
