The figures for attendance I quoted came directly from the BBC. I did not "invent figures off the top of your head".

I did not invent my uncles situation, neither did I make up any of the arguments, they are all there in the media for you to peruse at your leisure.

Define a 'Service Industry'. Define one industry that isn't directly affected by the failure of its' workers to find good, cheap food and drink, apart from the fashion industry (models and sweatshop labour).

When you eat your breakfast today - be it cornflakes, bacon and eggs, chocolate, remember - whatever you have, it has an animal or vegetable content - hell, even Poptarts have wheat in them! Agriculture may only account for a small percentage of employment (because if they can't even pay the minimum wage, who can they get to work for them?) but it accounts for 99.999rec.% of the food you stuff in your face.
