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 something.....

Thanks London, for another job well done.
