    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    Driving a car, Being married. Both need a license, now you know why. I am a lousy passenger too, I am another one who "brakes" on behalf of the driver, though only once did it get me into trouble. In a friends 'company car' he, his wife and I were going to a pub. He was driving. As we approached a junction, I braked. Almost immediately I was asked to be the back seat passenger. He was a driving instructor, and the car had duel controls.

    Hope the train was OK, it looks like a classic.

    Hmmm, yes,,, errm… Hello thin ice, here I come! This is political, but not party political so as such I believe allowable. Government in this country (of any party) receives an absolute fortune every year. What it chooses to spend it on has always been thought a tricky subject. Defence? NHS? Social services? the list goes on.... and on. I understand that there is an argument in favour of overseas aid (though I don't remember what it is) but what I do believe s that if Brexit saved us x billions a year, and if overseas aid were to stop, and if government spent each and every penny as if it were their own, we would not be one iota better off. There would still be food banks or the need for them. Remember your parents, remember how they had to be careful to make ends meet. Nothing changes, nothing ever will... nothing ever can.

    I believe there are 'rules' that cover that evenruality

    The View From Work This Morning

    "Numbers and money" figures can (sometimes intentionally) be misleading, What is a "millionaire" someone who's total assets are worth 1,000,000 or more? Well if that's the case I'm surprised it's only 715,000. there are many houses worth that sort of money. It's disposable capital that these charities are after, which is an entirely different matter.

    Time To Comment!

    Thank you Paladin, I had got as far as typing "No SpeedTriple, I cannot agree with that. An elected BA is not the way forwards. Elected by whom? Those who live there? Those who own boats there? Those who regularly hire boats there? Twitchers? Holders of rod licenses? There is an enormous list of “stakeholders” each with their own agenda, each with their own priorities. Power would go to the likes of the RSPB who have massive membership. Boat owners would be quite a small minority, riverside residents even smaller. Disaster would be the result as far as our needs went." by the time you had replied.

    I think you might be right Vaughan, but it had me wondering. Imagine this ... We at the BA have, on the expressed instructions of our mighty leader Dr Packman, been instructed to set up and run 6 webcam sites, mainly showing navigable parts of the Norfolk Broads (National Park) to aid and assist people already there and to encourage new visitors. Further we are inviting you, the stakeholders and visitors, to select the six sites, and what the cameras should show. What would YOU suggest?

    Thank you Pally, Not what I wanted to hear but such is life. I still think there must be some solution to this problem. The waste isn't new, and the money for it's disposal hasn't (significantly) changed,

    Time To Comment!

    Peter, the problem here is only going to be debatable if we keep away from terms like "poodles". I fully understand and of course agree with your sentiments, but we need to try to keep to non inflammatory language. Sorry mate, but that's how I see it.
  12. I do not wish to dilute the threads regarding the DEFRA survey "Time to comment" or the "JP's broads briefing", but one thing I find myself confused about is the definitions of "Commercial" and "leisure" and why one set of rules apply to cruising yet the other is applied to the waste from that cruising? Can anyone help me here?

    Jp's Broads Briefing

    This subject is one I am not qualified to make further comment on Peter, as to do so, would require me to have to look into it.

    Isn't publishing photographs of JennyMorgan's backside an act of terrorism in it's own right?

    Yes definitely Halloween. That looks like a Rover 2000 and a Ford Corsair in the garden. Those people really are out to scare us.
