Tourism chiefs worry about Council driving away tourists.

Edinburgh and Lothians Tourist Board has called for the return of the Beltane Fire Festival.

Graham Birse, head of marketing at the tourist board, said: It's a great pity the festival was cancelled .
We hope the differences between those involved are temporary, and the organisers can sort out funding and sit down with the authorities to ensure the festival complies with safety procedures, so that residents and visitors can be offered a unique experience in the years to come.

Tourists planning to visit the Scottish capital should note that it has not stopped raining since the Council decided to ban the public from Calton Hill on Beltaine, that the shopping is better in Glasgow and the Highlands are much interesting in terms of scenery and historic monuments.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
