The Tories' historic and apparent hatred of funding anything cultural
I'm sure there's a lot of deadwood to cut, BUT, flicking through the list, my eye was caught by the Railway Heritage Committee. 'What did they do?', I wondered.
Well, it seems they go about saving records, objects and sites, placing them into existing collections where possible, arranging their protection, etc.
I find such stuff interesting, so am glad that it has been getting saved, and, being descended from someone working on building them in the 1800s, am quite intrigued by the records being available via record offices, family history sites or whatever as well.
It is my opinion that the comment in the document displays a willful ignorance of the rail sectors distinctive nature and needs that betrays a sneering disdain. "No equivalent protection applies to the heritage items of any other transport sector."
WTF? Railway stations plus infrastucture > airports / boatyards, so of course there's more to require protection!
Yes, an awful lot of shite being flushed away too, but the Tories still have no souls.
