Why is it so fucking hard for these articles to actually link to the damn study? Checked 6 different news reports on it, not a single one had the study link.

This actually pervades through the entire article...

"a bigger share than for any of the other G20 major countries"

Except some of the G20 countries are far larger and have FAR larger economies. "percentages" means actually nothing in that regard, and makes it incomparable to other nations who have far stronger economic sectors than the UK.

Heck, 7% in Germany might be 4 times more actual income from that sector than the UK's 8%.. but we will never know reading this article.

While the world service is a fantastic, global, non-sensational news source, the massive usage of "quote headlines" on the BBC website is a source of shame.

Actually nevermind me, i misread the news blurb.. you know.. reading news topics on the BBC is overrated and all. I thought it meant something like most financial income is produced via Internet economy. Which is not what the news actually says when you read it. It was just the BBC writing the headline in a way I misread it
