I've just viewed Simon Calder's comments on the Beeb. I have to say that they seem ill-informed, and counter-productive.
"Britain is still the world centre for airline travel." Does he have the facts to back up that incredible statement. I think not!
" From the government's point of view, it's a wonderful tax because a high proportion of foreign people have to pay it, and they don't vote." Oh yes they do Mr Calder, with their feet!
Man's a fool.
