“Having reproduced the ONS figures showing that the benefits of tourism are a myth, allow us to expand a little further.
Several Cornwall Councillors believe that tourism should be subjected to a tax. Perhaps a pound a bed a night in order to offset the effects of tourism.
We shall ignore completely the idiotic comments of one poster but ask this. Should we now campaign to have those Councillors bring this to open discussion at Cornwall Council?
Tourism is a small part of Cornwall's GDP. There are other larger and more stable industries and the promise of better work to come as those of you who have seen the news this evening will know.
Our group is small, half a dozen or so, but we do have the ears of policy makers.”
