    I assumed they might / would be. Until early January, when I dug through the inbox.

    It seems that Visit Scotland are promulgating a similar view to that I expressed earlier. So who is right I wonder?

    You miss my point. Government bureaucrats... the unelected who often, as the thought goes, could not make a go of it in the public sector. I'm not suggesting they can be held accountable, I'm suggesting the information they provide is not always up to snuff.

    What on earth is a "Quango" anyway? Is it another of these acronyms designed to communicate secretively between members of the cogniscati?

    a semipublic administrative body outside the civil service but receiving financial support from the government, which makes senior appointments to it.
