Scottish Museum suffers under Labour

The Royal Museum in Edinburgh, like many museums in Scotland AND England is having to raise its entry fee to almost $12 for a family ticket as it is receiving insufficient funding from both central and local Labour government.

It seems Labour does not value the contribution that the exhibits make to the lives of 'locals' and tourists alike who head for the museum to see much of Scotlands history and culture.

Then again, London marginalizing Scottish culture is nothing new, it has many historical precedents.
