British tourists

 

Sir, – Many commentators attributed the 7 per cent reduction in UK tourists to the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, even though UK tourism to other destinations is only down by 1 per cent. I wonder what effect the constant deluge of comments from Irish politicians, civil servants and commentators to the effect that British people (aka tourists and consumers of Irish exports) are racist, isolationist, stupid, uneducated, and empire-obsessed might be having? – Yours, etc,
