We should make our visitors welcome
DISNEY'S The Lion King is a storming success and we should all feel very proud that Bristol is hosting its first performances outside London.
People have travelled here from far and wide to witness this remarkable collaboration of imaginative puppets, music and dancers. It is a show that has put Bristol on the map.
So why on earth does the city council want to spoil it by sending out their traffic wardens to pounce coach drivers picking up people from the Hippodrome?
Here is a perfect example of a case where they should think constructively.

Ian Miller, the owner of Chaffeurhire, is right to blast the council.
He rightly says the council and its staff should be working to help people visiting Bristol not making it harder for them.
Clearly the bays it has set aside are not adequate. Nor it seems is the communication with coach firms.
We are not dealing here with a permanent problem.
The Lion King is an exceptional show that runs in total for 11 weeks.
Surely it is not beyond the wit of council employees to come up with a better solution that sending out traffic wardens waving tickets and making our city appear poorly prepared, unwelcoming and intolerant.
