Cultural Vandalism

My three favourite museums in the world — the Science Museum in Manchester, the Railway Museum in York and the Media Museum in Bradford — all face closure.

These are ‘non-core’ museums, according to the organisation that runs them. Which means that they’re not in London. Northerners apparently don’t get to have science, art, history or culture.

I am *blood-boilingly* furious about this. This is an act of cultural vandalism that will do incalculable damage to Manchester and Bradford (less so to York, because of the nature of that city). If anyone knows if there’s a campaign to save these museums, and how I can get involved, please let me know.
