I think "The Broads" is fine.

If you are going to introduce the word "Norfolk".....then you have to also include "Suffolk".

I think the councillor for Waveney is right to feel indignant.

At a time the BA are pleading poverty and with on the cards increases of 13% for the near future I am incredulous that they have ?20,000 to spend on a report that says having the word Norfolk will help branding and identification in Marketing the region.

Talk about stating the b***dy obvious. More value would have been to work out how to brand the area without alienating one of the counties the area encompasses by effectively forgetting its there!

It strikes me that the BA feels it has to go through these hoops to prove to government that it can handle being a fully fledged qwanqo.

Attract more people? how about keeping fees within inflation, ensuring the broads are navigable giving discounts to Junior and School Club boating to encourage the next generation etc etc.

Logic of the current strategy appears to be a viscous circle of declining numbers = higher Broads fees to make up for the shortfall. Take that to its logical conclusion and call it the Broads wilderness.

Well done Simon Anholt a true master of 'knitting fog'

Rant over!

is it just me,
or does any one else think that at the moment every thing in this country is being run by Folk who do not seem to have a clue?
As you know i defended the Toll increase,but that was before i knew that £20000 had been WASTED on stating the OBVIOUS.
If that had been spent on dredging or extra Ranger cover it might have been well spent.
SOAP BOX RANT OVER.

Hi Roy,well done mate Playful Wink  you spotted it!
as far as i can see, for a long lime now,the only qualification for a job running any vital service eg government,the nhs,law enforcement,the BA?, appears to be a total lack of either ability or common sense,and a complete lack of experience in the relevent area.
Sorry,i'm about to start foaming at the mouth and ranting about the 'state of the country today'etc,etc

Cheers!

What do we call the Broads?
If only that was all the Bill was about!

Packman must be jumping up and down with glee at the publicity that this, largely irrelevant clause is geting, whilst other, far more important issues are ignored by the media(along with many here  Mad ).

The real point is that, if passed, this piece of parliamentary mischeif can (and I have no doubt will) be used to greatly curtail OUR LEGAL RIGHT to navigate on the tidal waterways of the Broads, whatever you wish to call them!

In addition the legal right  will be conferred on Rangers to board and take charge of a vessel in certain circumstances. How many of them have the ability to handle a 30' gaff rigged yacht in a blow? I very much doubt it! And when they get it wrong, where will the liability lie?

RANT TO BE CONTINUED!!!!

Small point. When the name is changed - to whatever - how much is it going to cost for new logos, new stationery, new signboards, new job descriptions / titles, re-branding publicity campaigns etc.

There have to be better things to spend our money on.

Of course its the Norfolk Broads.  Always has been.  The BA may well be using a national government ploy(used by governments of all colours since politics began)  to distract the public from the REAL issues.
