What did I tell you, jimmy101. I make a very tongue-in-cheek remark about swimming elsewhere not attracting replies and a whole new discussion opens up  Confused

Sorry, couldn't resist the challenge.  Playful Wink

Just because The BA make a request, don't automatically assume they have the powers to make such requests!! Keeping a careful eye on an Authority which is making it's own rules.

I've scuba dived in the docks at Liverpool.

Does that class as swimming in the Mersey?

Went over the Mersey via 'The Bridge' yesterday....

...I have to say, swimming in there wouldn't be high on my list.  Playful  Smile

Mind you...the tide was out  LOL

Tri the dipping place at hickling, lots of weed on the main broad so crystal clear, pleasure island and back was the target in my youth, no holes or currents, half inch of tide, safe as hotels!

All good, sound, worthy stuff...

But eventually we won't be able to do anything without a permit....you can't let a youngster climb a tree or go for a paddle these days without someone pointing out the critical danger they're in....how did we ever survive?

Problem become that those who have now grown up surrounded by cotton wool have never developed the ability to think for themselves and make sensible judgements about anything, because as soon as someone is hurt, the cry  goes up that "they" should have foreseen it and put up a warning sign.

I liked it better when I could have some freedom.

Better drowned than duffers; if not duffers won't drown....ring a bell with anyone?

Bah!
