I think the proposals for the Leeds tram are pretty stupid. It will cost a lot of money, cause a lot of disruption, save 4 minutes of some journeys and restrict many other bus services. It’s a pointless ego project that I fear the local council can see no way out of. To add my voice to the many disagreeing with the project I hand-stitched my name for a craftivist petition being made by Fran. Combing craft and activism can give powerful results as it can strengthen the message by illustrating the care and attention given to the project. It can also help the activitists be more creative and attention grabbing in communicating their message.
