Still smiling!

The lessons of the weekend are that if we want to boost the Welsh economy the best way to do so is to win the Grand Slam every year. The Western Mail reports today that 'Rugby fans keen to party spent a whopping £15m on food and booze during a weekend of celebrations. About two million pints were downed in a day as the party stretched into the early hours with 200,000 fans inundating the city centre. And over a million takeaways or sit-down meals were sold to starving supporters over the weekend.'

The feelgood factor from Wales' victory has spread far and wide. If we can spread this sort of investment in the hospitality industry in the same way then we will all be better off.
