Enroute home today I stopped off to see these giant Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow sculptures. They are 33 feet tall, made of stainless steel, created by artist John McKenna and pay tribute to the people who served in Port Glasgow and Inverclyde shipyards and made the area world famous for shipbuilding.
They’re pretty impressive, and set off a slowly regenerating area of high deprivation, and the last working shipyard. The yard is now under Scottish government bail out control and mired in an economic and political fiasco of breathtaking proportions. The arrogance, incompetence and mismanagement of public funds by all concerned is a national disgrace, and woefully demonstrates that anything dreadful Westminster can do, Holyrood can also stoop down to, as both parliaments are polarised in a way which disables true government scrutiny.
