Talking sense until...

Dear Sir,

The president of the Chamber of Commerce was talking sense on his TV appearance a number of days ago...  

until he blamed the Govt for allowing a duty free shop at the cruise liner terminal as the root of all evil to local businesses... fast forward a couple of days and we have the post office inundated with parcel deliveries and processing which an educated guess on my part would indicate web purchases.

Yesterday, Panorama's front page carried a picture of closed shops in Main street and city centre in what is supposed to be a run up to Christmas which, again, an educated guess would mean that those businesses can afford to close... but by all means let the Chamber of Commerce blame a shop at the cruise liner terminal?
