Implied textThe Three Graces -
NotesNews : The government is planning a counter offensive against Tony Blairs claims that 15 years of Tory rule have ripped apart the social fabric of the country and triggered the crime wave plaguing much of Middle England. The Prime Minister intends to use his party conference speech in the autumn to give warning that Labours fixation with the power of the state would aggravate social problems. Mr Major admitted to Tory MP's last month that the blurring of the Tory message was one main reason why the government was languishing in the polls. This speech will try to remedy that deficiency by pointing out that all its policies - from keeping taxes and spending as low as possible, to cutting business red tape - have the common theme of giving people the maximum control over their lives. [Nicholas Wood and Arthur Leathley, The Times, 10th August 1994] News : There was more controversy over the proposed removal of the Three Graces to the Getty Mueseum in California, when the government delayed granting an export licence four days after the deadline had passed. A public appeal was launched by the National Gallery of Scotland and the Victoria and Albert Mueseum for 7.6 million pounds to keep the Graces in the United Kingdom.
