Interesting story in the Belfast Telegraph concerning Goverment's waste of £125m creating "Visitor Centres" that don;t actually attract any visitors. Worst of all was the Burren Centre at Warrenpoint. It cost approx £95,000 just to set it up (never mind running costs, still hidden by Government)it attracted 107 visitors in 1998. This sort of crass stupidity is symtomatic of what happens when Government gets involved in areas it has no business being in. Typically, politicians rush to half-excuse this, witness Burnsides nonsense. This was tax-payers money taken from them and used by Government to create a herd of white elephants.
