“People are traveling to the continent to get flights… so the Exchequer is losing revenue too”
StudioCaribe’s excellent news item on the UK’s Air Passenger Duty makes an important point: the APD is bad for the UK too, and there is a growing movement within UK business to have the tax removed entirely.
As the news item points out, the budget announcement that Air Passenger Duty will not rise this year is a small but important victory for the Caribbean – but the fight is far from over.
This is the first time we’ve taken a look at StudioCaribe’s YouTube channel and we’re very impressed with the high quality production values and their ability to tell a story. By the looks of some of the other videos they have a compelling documentary in production too – The Smelter Wars – about a community’s fight against a smelting operation that threatens their very lives.
This is one of those web surfing moments when we said to ourselves “What a great little discovery!”
It’s well worth your time to check out StudioCaribe’s videos at YouTube.
