  1. If we lose this great collection, we lose it forever. It represents the triumph of art and industry together and is tangible proof of what happens when those two spheres work positively- one of the greatest success stories of our industrial heritage. Do we want to be remembered as the generation who forfeited our cultural memory because we were not wise enough to think of a more strategic solution? Wedgwood, an eighteenth century industrialist with a vision, could teach us a thing or two about business. Let's learn from one of this country's first true entrepreneurs and not sell his soul because we lacked the imagination to keep it. Come on people! Save this great museum and be proud to have it!
