The Bargain Hunter: Crack open the champers

There's nothing like oysters and champagne to make you feel like a million dollars – but thankfully you no longer need to have millions to enjoy them. London restaurant Plateau is currently offering half a dozen Colchester rock oysters with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne for just £15. Available at any time of day, they can be savoured in the romantic setting of the restaurant bar or – if the weather's nice – the Johnnie Walker terrace, overlooking Canary Wharf.

<i>IoS</i> letters, emails &amp; online postings (13 February 2011)

Joan Smith's article, "They're not called soft subjects for nothing", panders to a lame stereotype of degree courses in "Madonna studies or equine tourism" (6 February). Tourism's contribution to the UK economy, currently £115bn a year, could grow by more than 60 per cent to £188bn by 2020. It would seem intelligent to train people to deal with this. The article asserts that "students from poorer backgrounds would make do with less challenging 'soft' vocational subjects like media studies". But the UK film industry alone employed 33,500 people and supported 95,000 jobs, contributing £4.3bn to the economy, according to Oxford Economics in 2007. Again, that takes trained staff.
