MM, they still have the recent insured flood risks which happened to settle up for. They will have other reasons too I’m sure, I don’t doubt premiums will not fall and could even rise along with mean sea level and taxes. I for one am looking at what I can do to keep something aside for a much needed break on the broads as I think the virtues of such a holiday are obvious, isolation opportunities in beautiful surroundings and quiet save for the wildlife.... going down to one car would have its challenges in our household but that’s what I’m planning for, bus and bike!

The full toll will be payable on any hire boat if it is used during the season

I have been saying this, over and over, on several different threads, for the last two weeks and more but no-one seems to want to believe me.

I have only been in this business for most of my blasted life, after all!!

At the risk of re-igniting this debate, I was / am fully aware of that fact and was never refuting that point.

At the moment the main priority is keeping ourselves and loved ones safe and healthy, many are going way beyond this to help others not just the professionals but the vast voluntary efforts  being made both individually with the volunteers and some businesses providing meals etc.

Because of my circumstances I am unable to do anything practical so the least I can do is make whatever financial contribution I can, once this is over many businesses will close many will be unemployed despite all the good efforts being made by the government to support us all, it is going to cost all of us financially for some considerable time years not months to get the country back on course, surely it is better to support as much as we can now rather than try and resurrect what has been lost in the future and if that includes paying tolls which most would or should have budgeted for anyway so be it.

Should they consider some form of charge for those who burden the NHS through their own recklessness as a result of drink or drugs?

I have long thought this should be the case, I feel sure that being hit where it hurts ( in the pocket) might make a lot of people see sense.
