/ The V&A in Dundee
Scotland's TV today is full of the launch of the Victoria & Albert Museum at Dundee and personally I can't wait to get there.
The impact of this on the regeneration of the City figures highly in the reports but to be fair to the BBC there was a parallel report on the deeper issues affecting the city which has more than its fair share of crime & drug problems.
My question is this - can a global art installation such as the V&A really influence the future of this fine city or do the old problems need sorting out first or indeed are both aspects essential to a way forward?

I really want to see it too. I don’t know Dundee but I imagine the increased revenue to the city can only help fund solutions to any problems.
Dundee is what I like to think of as the Scottish riviera, very similar to Nice really, I think you’re in for a treat
Will be going at the earliest opportunity.
No doubt a game changer but investment (private and public) has to follow to leverage.
Nah - it's Scotland's answer to San Francisco...

Brilliant! Can’t wait - I love Nice !
I like to think of it as Lagos, but without the mosquitos.
It's Scotland's answer to South San Francisco... (FTFY).
