  1. Illegal is normally used to define an act in contravention of criminal law, unlawful means a breach in any situation governed by a set of "laws". This could be a contravention of employment law or some other area of uk law, but could equally mean breaking the laws of rugby, for example deliberately throwing the ball into touch during a rugby match would be "unlawful", but it is not of course "illegal". As for the erosion of civil liberties then those liberties come with responsibilities as does the governance of them. In times of exceptional need it is right and proper for government to

  2. I don't think it's interpretation in many cases, but respect. There has been very little respect for the latest lock down in our area and it is no surprise we are now have the highest infection rate in the country. This is not about people not knowing, or misinterpreting the rules, we have hidden behind those excuses too long. It is about people blatantly knowing what they are doing is wrong but doing it anyway. And as for the "protesters" yesterday it is time we started treating these people in the manner which protects the populace not these morons. Water canon are very effective. Peop

  3. Seeing that daft lot on the news this morning gathering in London for their so called 'rights'. Well what about the rights of normal folk who dont want to be infected by those numbskulls. The only way to get back to normal is to be patient. These so called protesters should have a fortnights holiday in China I would suggest. They would soon be told where to shove their rights.

  4. Thank you Jean, that's the phrase needed to be learned by so many "The RIGHT AND LEGAL thing to do." Right is not necessarily legal, and legal is not necessarily right. It has to be both!

  6. Two points concern me most about this debate. Firstly - If the land was crown owned and it was sold off, should that potential sale not have been made public for any interested parties to bid on, thereby getting the best price for the tax payer? Or was the sale kept 'In House' - if so is that not wrong? Secondly - Surely the Ba should have seen this situation coming. We have had a year on on/off lockdown when the rivers have been quieter than normal, now we are potentially entering into a season that could well break all records. Hire craft fully booked, privateers - well they can

  7. Yesterday at least three people in the supermarket, had a mask on.Very good,problem is it was on the chin not there mouth of nose.Our neighbour's seem to have a constant flow of people going in the house.Thankfully most people stick to the rules,but it's the ones that don't that causes the problem.

  8. We see the same around here. And there’s definitely more traffic on the roads than you would expect in lockdown. The stay at home message seems to have got lost this time around. And more people seem to be thinking “it won’t matter if I just ...”! Like yourself, Monica, we have stuck to keeping only within our village other than getting my vaccination. We are longing to be able to get further afield even only a few miles, but won’t do it until it’s the right and legal thing to do.

  9. About time. With it still being stay at home until 29th March I struggled to see how any yard could think it was ok to let anyone out on day boats up to that point. And they didn’t need to do anything other than read the government website to know that. The time between 29th March and 12th April has been less clear. Our caravan site owners are trying to tell us we can’t go down there at all, even just for a few hours to take things back. We live less than one hour away so as long as stay at home becomes minimise travel then one trip during that time should be perfectly legal. Hiring a day

  10. At least you're working mate. Some of us have been prevented from earning anything since Christmas! I know, I do really and am trying my best not to feel guilty about others that are not so fortunate. I have to work as got no furlough or any financial help whatsoever since the first lock down, still haven't and tbh don't need any either, so when we collectively have to start paying off the national debt at least I know I didn't add to it! That first lockdown three months was tough though, slowly going bankrupt! For those forumites that couldn't work, I have your ba

  11. From the BA website:- **Repairs cannot proceed until agreement is reached between the Environment Agency and the owner of the site regarding the future responsibilities for the piling. It is also not possible to start work until the Authority’s lease of the site is renewed. The St Benet’s site is leased to the Broads Authority by the landowner and is managed by the Authority as an free 24 hour mooring location. Previous works carried out by Broadland Environment Services Limited (BESL) saw the new flood bank redeveloped behind the piled edge, meaning the piles no longer form the

  12. We purchased our boat from Paul, it was so straightforward and professional, a real gentleman. He built her for the previous owners and maintained her from thereon. Although we moor at Horning in an excellent yard with very good staff; because of Paul's knowledge and care of the boat, we always take her back to Brundall for servicing etc.

  13. I actually posted a comment to one of the vloggers and said that I thought you had to stay local , the reply I received was, I am local. Well local to me is popping down to Beccles for fuel and shopping or attending the medical centre , it is not making films walking around Suffolk and Norfolk ( however lovely that is) with the family. We have stuck to the rules the whole time. Only walk from the house and the only 'trips' if you can call them trips out have been to have our vaccinations at Southwold and to attend the Hearing Clinic at Bungay, other than that and essential things we h

  14. Was sent a picture today of our new canopy that was fitted by Jeckells. The majority of it was fitted in January, but the extra bit was finished today. I’ve been told by Paul at the yard, that it’s all good. Just looking forward to travelling up to Norfolk soon to see it for ourselves.

  15. Another weekend with time spent working on refurbishing the trailer, axle mounted, more derusting carried out. All other new and old parts collected up from storage, ready for individual zinc paint coating. The keel was moved down to the boat from outside the workshop, Easter weekend I hope to raise the boat up enough to get the keel under. Back to work again tomorrow, I had 9 weeks off last year, but have been now working as normal since June last year, I'll be happier with that when I get the second jab, I really disliked it before any jab at all. At least at work most of the time

  16. Well someone took responsibility for fencing it off, so maybe they should rectify whatever it is that they are not happy about. There are few enough free 24 hour moorings for the number of boats, as it is. We pay enough on our tolls to be able to use our boats, so it's us that should have the primary consideration, I would have thought. My toll due at the end of the month is £581.60 and the same bot, if it were a hire craft such as Swan Radiance or Romance, it would be £1,310.00, so fisherman hardly finance the facilities, my current rod license is £20 albeit those using this stretch have to p

  17. I found this Facebook site, which has lots of information/posts from the pubs and restaurants of the Broads. I learned for instance that The Bridge at Acle is having lots of enquiries to book outdoor tables, but is yet to start taking reservations. It could be a useful "noticeboard" for those of us who like to eat out on holiday. Food On The Norfolk Broads. It's a private group you have to register with. They let me in....speaks for itself https://www.facebook.com/groups/1114171121997055/

  18. I had a 1971, 351 Cu In, Ram Air, Mach1. The Middle East conflicts killed the car off for us as we were doing alot of "thro France" at the time. We went from 5300cc to 602cc but a full tank and a couple of hidden Jerry cans got us over The Pyrenees into Spain via The Col de Puymorens.

  20. Failed miserably, Completed another six day working week. It should have been just five of course. The reason for having to do six days yet again? - The client - There's a surprise then - Not Mon - Thurs was booked in for a four day kitchen wall tiling job. 9 x m2 of small 200 x 65mm ceramic tiles. The deal was the client would remove the small amount of original tiles, make good any rough areas, remove all wall paper, I arrived Monday morning to find wall adhesive left on, loose / crumbling plaster and not a jot of wall paper removed. Also to be informed that they wanted a

  24. Had the pleasure of meeting Peter Wigg at Oulton week, a real character who honed in on the fact that I and company were obviously from Hickling, (it was indeed written on co’s transom so the game was probably given away). I reflected afterwards that he may have been related to my eldest aunts first husband, also a Wigg schooled in Suffolk, hence the Hickling interest. Will never know for sure but would be a happy coincidence.
