Blackwood is a village in the valleys of Wales, a place largely un-noticed by the world other than me. I know it because my great aunt Marge lived there and, for us kids, she made the best fairy cakes I can remember
I am surprised. For the second time in a year I find myself in agreement with Michael O’Leary the chief executive of Ryamair in welcoming the cut in airline passenger tax in Ireland. From St David’s Day, March 1st (why not St Patrick’s Day?) the Irish government is reducing what they call the Air Travel Tax (The British equivalent is APD, Air Passenger Duty) from €10 to €3. However there is a catch. It may be only temporary as they have announced that it is only temporary until the end of 2011. Ryanair said that tourism will continue to be strangled by the tax and called on the UK government to reduce its APD.
