Paladine,

You can be be grateful for what has happened in the past and mightily peed off by those who over-react and deliberately spin any news into the worst case scenario at the same time - and troll any on-line reference to the NP.

The situation NOW is that there is no realistic possibility of the Broads becoming a full National Park. Ergo no Sanford (which always seems to me to be a sensible response to the protection of areas of Britain) and likewise no boating ban.

I think National Parks are great. I've visited the Lakes several times each year of my life and I think waterskiing is totally inappropriate on Windermere.

I’m pleased to read that ” The situation NOW is that there is no realistic possibility of the Broads becoming a full National Park.”

I thought your previous statement, ”Oh and while I'm at it, it is a bloody National Park...”, meant that you actually believed the marketing spin  tounge-in-cheek

I'm not too sure. Shall we have a debate about it? Perhaps you'd like to start a new thread.

From my "little" experience, I guess I must be so very lucky! I see that the numbers of stag/hen parties per week continue to increase with silly numbers being bandied around as to how many turn up each and every week.

Whilst I suppose it is possible that up to 100 seperate and rowdy parties are roaming the Broads on a weekly basis, I must ask where are they all? Is this just the noisy ones who stay up every night shouting and swearing until 3a.m.or do some behave perfectly normally?

Assuming that is the case and thats about 1 boat in 8, the rivers must be heaving with noisy parties and drunken louts at every turn - is it a surprise that Mr and Mrs Average are now concerned for their own and their childrens safety and are reluctant to come.

Or you could take the opposite view and that is that in reality is no worse than it has ever been and you can quite easily, go around the rivers on a weekly basis and never meet them!! Exuberant and silly behaviour occasionally but gosh I have just been so lucky to miss that what others experience at every bend!!

There is a well known Norfolk expression however that tends to describe exaggeration and similar fuss over not a lot, and that is that is is generally a lot of old squit!!

Has the broads changed ? The answer to that is undoubtedly YES. But having said that it has changed no more than anywhere else and is just symptomatic of a country in decline as all the cuts are now beginning to have big detrimental effects on society. When you start cutting down on enforcement whether that be the police or any other authorities things only go one way and certain section of society will take advantage of that and more or less do as they want. You only have to look at the driving standards on our roads as a prime example of that, the broads are no different.

Nice to see the predominantly sanguine nature of this thread it makes a welcome change.

I guess if we had forums in the 70s & 80s you would hear similar grumbles to the ones that are about today and just to add I was one of those speeding 80s city dwellers  who knew no better being told to slow down by the BA    Blush

Took my 3 & 6 year old little gulls for sail today from horsey to deep dyke for picnic and back. Took me back to sailing at a similar age at hickling, most things haven't changed, the weedcutter back n the 70s was rusted up at cat field dyke, the one that passed us today has broads national park livery where may gurney perhaps would have been. Other than that not much change.
