Taxpayer's poetry

Burning Our Money has an interesting post about a poet who has been given £7,000, by Arts Council England, so that he can fly to Australia to… watch cricket! It brought to mind my recent entry regarding legal plunder, and the abuse of tax-payers’ money to support ventures that should, by all rights, be self-supporting.

What possible justification is there for this? What possible benefit does the average tax-payer derive this Australian odyssey?
