"Addicted to tourism."
Our media have moved on from tourism - the only industries that they
were concerned about when coming down a Level were local bars and
restaruants, and whether they would get through the lunchtime rush
without having longer to stock up - all those journalits were just
gasping for a few pints . . .

The reality is that our world has changed - some are taking longer to
realise that than others - naturally it is easier to keep getting
bailout money from the government than creating a new market or
accepting that the value of your investment has dropped markedly . . .
- and that is just those who espouse the "Free market" . . .
