Cash won't make up for tourism damage; LETTERS.
So the highly generous Gwynt y Mor Tourism Fund set up by RWE NPower Renewables, is providing pounds 690,000 to improve Llandudno pier, so that small cruise ships and coasters can dock there (Daily Post, June 27).
Aren''t they generous? It''s a pity you fail to mention that the pounds 690,000, and many millions of pounds more, will have been taken surreptitiously, in the first place, from the unsuspecting electricity consumers of the UK via green levies on their electricity bills, and through their taxes paid to the Government.
RWE NPower claim to be contributing to North Wales tourism, whilst at the same time, ruining the very scenery that tourists come to see, with monstrous wind turbines as high as Blackpool Tower all around them, both on land and sea.
Immeasurably more tourists will be lost to North Wales than will be gained from the handfuls on small ships.
If anyone wishes to disagree with that, let them provide solid tourism statistics - not more spin than the gigantic, intermittent wind turbines themselves.
