You might find it costs the tax payer a great deal more in the long run.
Ok we dont hold the TT ever again. then you will see a hell of a lot of places shut, hotels,food outlets, shops etc etc. big lose of income that then has a knock on effect to other companys that supply these ones. and u will find that the tax payer is paying more out in benfits than it cost to run the TT.
I know of at least 5 companys that the TT pays for there quiet winters. its the only thing keeping them going. I seen the books of many diffrent ones and them 2-3 weeks. profits go though the roof.
So MDO maybe you should look at the bigger picture in life sometimes. not the oooooo it costs me cash.
