    Apologies if this appears to be political, but my reasons for posting have nothing to do with political parties, and everything to do with a belief that understanding past wars will help prevent future wars.

    The Imperial War Museum’s library is threatened with closure. I think it would be a terrible shame if this were to happen, and it’s not something that can be reversed in future. There is a petition protesting the funding cuts that have led to these plans. I have signed it. If you agree, then I would ask you to sign it too.

    Crazy. They £40 million on the refurbishment then can’t find £4 million to fund they library. Is the IWM run by utter cretins ?

    I signed this over on another web site, got a load of spam e-mail from something called the change.

    When you sign, it automatically signs you up for some other web site?

    I think you are getting emails from change.org, which is the same website the petition is on.
    You must have left ticked a subscription button somewhere.
    Which is naughty as UK law, as I understand it, is that you have to opt in for e-mails, not opt out…

    Yes Mike and it’s mega annoying to receive unsolicited e-mail junk spam.

    So the lesson for me is not to sign any more petitions.

    Totally agree, this has nothing to do with “Tory cuts” and everything to do with mismanagement of funds.
