HMS Edinburgh to be preserved?

Interesting article here: http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.co...urgh-1-3181685

Rather unusually, there appears to be quite widespread support for her preservation from the local political establishment. As an attraction in conjunction with Britannia I suppose it could just work, she'd certainly be in an excellent location.

Perhaps they could extend the tram system to her.

If Scotland does go it alone then I won't want the government splashing the cash on a Scottish tourist attraction. Would think any funding would not be forth coming until after next year's decision..

If Scotland wants her, I have no problem.
But would expect the English parliament to invest some lottery funds in HMS Plymouth.

Yes but only if a suitable operator can run the ship in a viable manner and has a guaranteed berth which is unlikely so scrap her!
