image for Film Maker's controversy
A film director,pondering

A ground-breaking film director has once again courted controversy by asking the simple question: Would this money be better spent on a hospital, or in education, or somewhere with lasting value?

The famed director, behind such celluloid gems as 'Postman Pat and the Deathly pall of a dying career', and 'Mrs Goggin's Day off' has serious doubts about even making his next film, 'Chigley Armageddon'.

Speaking excursively to TheSpoof.com he said: "I like my job, I really do, but at the end of the day, to use a sporting metaphor, it is a game of two halves: people see our films, they are mildly amused for an hour or so, and then they go home.

"My films have never saved anyone's life, they have probably ended a few relationships and careers, but they have saved no life, and I suppose that that is what I am looking to do."
