Stop making a fuss about state visits

It is good of Queen Elizabeth and US President Barack Obama to visit here. But I am sure their intentions go no further than being kind to a small country with little influence.

The benefits of any tourism that might arise from these visits will be shortlived, and the country's debt will remain. I wish that people would stop making so much of a few transient visits and sporting wins.
