    Cut the funding for the "Royal" family - fund the Monarch only - not the hangers on. That should leave enough for Waverley's boilers ........... Cut MP expense allowances too..... i- they are overpaid anyway.

    I can't imagine the UK government spending money on anything as sensible as a sail training ship, even if we had one, but a comparison could be HS2.

    It's really peanuts isn't it!?
    Repairs to the German navy sail training ship Gorch Fock were estimated, and contracted, at 10M Euro. Cost are now approaching 90M Euro and she's still not finished๐Ÿค”
    BTW We don't talk about Berlin's new (ha ha!) airport or the new Stuttgart railway station any more ๐Ÿ™„
    (And certainly NOT the German air force's Government Transport Squadron or A400s!๐Ÿ˜ฎ)

    Evidently, Waverley's boilers are to cost ยฃ130,000, what is that in the terms of government waste? or, possibly half a dozen MP's expenses.

    Heartedly agree ,only mentioned the Scottish government after what they said about backing the campaign,though not enough to dip into their pockets ,Edinburgh council could pay for the repair rather than the next instalment of the trams debacle (sorry for political rant)๐Ÿ˜€

    Waverley is a national treasure. She gives pleasure to many people right around our coasts. Not only the Scottish government but the Welsh and, dare I suggest it, even in their impoverished state, the UK government could find it in themselves to pay for the whole thing.

    I for one as a Scottish tax payer would be quite happy for the Scottish government to give the fund a little or a big helping financial hand .๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ
