However, any approach to the City or banks for investment and support of businesses based on talent is largely rejected ('Where is your security?' - like Canary Wharf?) or brushed aside ('Your debtors are foreign and difficult to collect' - like a Canadian province, a US state or the government of New South Wales?).
This country needs a massive change of attitude and a new lead from the Government if we are not to lose out to foreign investment in our greatest national asset: show business. Further, our present international lead was achieved by our investment in the Arts Council, which is now being reduced.
When will we learn how best to exploit our assets?
