Why the British tourist industry is struggling?
I’ve been holding my tongue since I first heard the “be a Brit different” adverts promoting UK tourism. But a controversial ad for the Eurostar has me wondering if I’m missing the point of tourism altogether. The Belgian advert portrays a “tattooed skinhead urinating into a china teacup.”
Am I the only one that is utterly confused? (Even after reading the article’s `explanation.’) This, apparently, is okay since the ad is pitched towards Belgians who `get it.’ Actually, I think the ad has done more to make me second-guess any trips to Brussels rather than make me feel like visiting London.
