A while back I heard of the High Street Innovation Fund, a scheme to restore the fortunes of the British high street. It was a high profile thing headed by Mary Portas, retail guru. What a great idea, I thought, but alas this seems to have gone down the tubes too.
It’s really disappointing that the whole thing seems to have been a bit of a flop. Possibly the only successful aspect has the creation of another dreary reality series. I do wish that people would just concentrate on doing a job rather than looking for opportunities to raise their personal profile.
