Sounds a good option to me John. Because with no deterrent those in attendance will happily skip off to the next one they hear about.

We can't let 700, or the bulk of them, get away with it,  because otherwise that sends out the message that the bigger the gathering the less the police will do/can do to those who attend.

Definitely and not only water cannon but a few armed troops as well.   I knew one day all this no discipline would come back to bite and this is the result.   Me me me me me attitude.     We need a police force that the public can respect and in difficult situations not to just stand there doing a 'risk assessment' but get in there and get on with it.    Criminals and ne're do wells have it all on their side at the moment.

It's the unsmacked generation.
Still prefer the rubber bullets but would settle for the dye.

I seem to remember that when Boris was Mayor of London he bought a couple of water cannon from Germany. However, he never got the necessary permission to use them, so I believe they were quietly sold and have now been melted down into something else.
Maybe we could bring back the stocks for all those who won't do as they are told. Local charities could sell the ammo so that their depleted funds can be topped up.

I am aware of one large marina which has already decided they are shut completely from Thursday and have advised their berth holders accordingly. Locked up, no access. But no refunds either! Same as the last time the same business made strict and harder rules than those imposed by government.

Let me make it clear this is not where we moor, nor am I suggesting that anyone should look for ways to circumvent or stretch the rules which we all realise are needed in these dire times, BUT , if a local wants to use their daily walk  but once a week for example in the direction of their moored boat and check it's all safe and secure , canopy intact etc, then why not? They may even be able to do the same for those not so close by, as many if not most of the private moorings are not covered by staff or visible from a manned office etc. And this is not the Spring/ Summer as before.

Frustrated, again, Karen

Yes Dzign , cheek eh? Did you notice the patronising comments too, and the weak justification , with no mention of the hire yards having had special deferred terms. I'll quote it here for those who want a swift read. The poor English is not a typo on my part . The BA state:

"Private boats that are kept or used in the Broads navigation area or adjacent waters do still need to be tolled. We fully appreciate the frustrations of private owners have in not being able to use their vessels during this time. We ask for your understanding that tolls fund essential navigation works which need to carry on even if the majority of boaters cannot currently benefit from them."

Mad
