How do we get there?

Wouldn't this attitude be nice? (Emphasis mine.)
THREE Lothian MSPs have joined forces in an effort to stop Britain's national youth orchestra organisation relocating from Edinburgh to London.

The National Association of Youth Orchestras (NAYO) is one of the most important cultural bodies in Edinburgh, having a base in the city for nearly 30 years. But the body is considering moving to London, which insiders believe would attract more government funding.

Nationalist MSP Ian McKee has lodged a parliamentary motion, recognising "the association's vital contribution to the cultural life both of the capital city and all of Scotland". It has been supported by Lib Dem MSP Mike Pringle and Green MSP Robin Harper, among others.
