“to intrigue visitors and put another slant on our previously beleaguered history”

There’s a report here on a short discussion in the Assembly Commission in favour of a more public display of a certain painting, detail on the left. Unfortunately someone, and we don’t seem to be told who, has requested that it go out on loan [we aren’t told where either – Ed]. Some caution may be required in any display, however, as the BBC’s Mark Devenport points out.. the painting has a history of causing some offence in certain quarters..
