The major problem with London is the fact it sucks the life out of the rest of the country and is completely unapologetic about it (the city I'm talking about, not londoners) . But that's for a different thread..... Terrorism is just a lame Merlin excuse. Remember that they used that excuse for ALL their attractions nationwide and not just London midways. What happened in Paris (although I accept DLP isn't really anywhere near Paris) was even worse, yet I don't hear the Walt Disney Company grizziling about terror attacks ruining their business. Cut backs, stingy opening hours and closed attractions are what people got fed up with Merlin for. The Smiler and terrorism of course had an impact but were used as a smokescreen to hide crap running of RTP's.
