Tapestry of Scotland

Scrap the idea of building the “home of the Tapestry of Scotland” in Galashields

saving - £6 million

- if no alternative home can be found, cut the Tapestry into single sheet sized portions and send to refugees

Tapestry weaving was cutting edge technology around 1066, not 21st century 

invest the saving in employment schemes 



Why the contribution is important

1. Saving of £6 million

2. Investing in the future not in an idealised version of Scotland’s past, we’ve multiple fine paintings and buildings that stand as fine examples of our past

    And that is before we even mention the carbuncle that is the design of the shed to house the carpet.

    The vast majority of Borderers do not support this project. It does not represent good value for money and in no way will achieve the level of tourists to make the project viable. This project will inevitably run over budget due to the ongoing delays. Servicing this debt for the next 30 years will cost c£10 million. For this money you can build a new primary school, there are plenty schools in desperate need of investment. It's not right for children and teachers to undertake their education in portacabins in 2018.
