Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

I WAS NOT surprised to read Anthony Fraser's reply to your editorial on the "Motor Show 82", in fact I half expected it (CM, November 27).

Let's be honest, it is a Motor Show and not even a Commercial Vehicle Show and as for us poor body builders, we don't stand a chance.

It is too big, too long, with too much car emphasis and certainly too expensive. Our hotel bookings rates went up three times from January, even on the day of arrival.

I needed this Show to prove a point and I see no future in providing a picnic area for families whose children are on holiday from school. As for the VIP visitors to the stands, at least in 1980 Margaret Thatcher went into every hall and not the most exotic ones.

Let's face it, we know why the Show has to be at the NEC and that we subsidise the cars but now's the time to think again about whether we go in future.

It has become a chore and has lost its excitement and attractior of the Shows we all remember a Earls Court.
