Scottish tourism the poor boy of small European states
Whilst the INDEPENDENT Irish government does its best to promote Ireland
and Irish culture worldwide, spending $1 billion, the Scottish tourist
board has a scant $1million dollars to spend promoting the Highlands and
Islands of Scotland. Every bit as rich in scenery and culture, but being
promoted by a LONDON CONTROLLED Scottish Office, it is doomed to fall into
the bowels of no-go area for foreign tourists.
The Scottish Office
is like an Dr Evil, awakened after 30 years when $1million used to buy you
Thanks London, for another job well done.
