It would be interesting to know what parts of Salisbury are in the ''bustling retail....sector'' as referred to in Mr Glen's letter last week since many people I know, including the passengers on the R2, are only well aware of a burgeoning retirement home sector, a boarded-up shops sector, a lurid entertainment sector, many, many expensive fast food outlets, twenty or more restaurants, not forgetting a myriad of charity shops.

All this far removed from the cultured medieval city with local, family-owned businesses many of us remember from the 60s and 70s.

Never mind, when we leave Europe, no doubt most of these foreign-owned businesses will be returning to their own countries of origin......erm.
