I've been reading these threads and agree with what everyone say's, what is really sad from my point of view is that i always deemed Broadland to be safe and decent place to holiday. I believe in most respects it still is, we did have our car in the secure hangar but in the past have left cars outside with no problems, nothing will be done with these people boatowners and hirers will pay the cost indirectly so  another nail in the hire fleets. By the way Diesel is big enogh to frighten anyone but you are more likely to get licked, good deterrent, to all out there our thoughts that nothing else will happen and your boats will be safe.

The last broadland marina we had our moorings at had all sorts of pikeys & general ne'r do wells wandering about it unchallenged and as we stayed there it cost us a new outboard.

We are now in an electronically gated marina with CCTV and feel a lot happier about leaving a valuable asset alone during the hours of darkness.

It is a sad indictment that our home is also behind electronic gates, I’d rather not be, it costs us money but these pikey scumbags & Vicky Pollards give us little choice.


Cat logic: I once saw a spider go under this mat, ergo there is always a spider under it so I will sit and watch it all day every day.

Perhaps, Antares, you aren't aware that 'pikey' is a racist term, and offensive to some. However, I agree with the principle of your posting.

Jenny Morgan,
Being the name of my boat and the generic name applied to the flag atop of a Norfolk Wherry mast, unique to Broadland. Now you know!

Pikey, Diddicoy...

Yorkie (thats me BTW), Tyke...

Jock,

Paddy,

who cares?! All this PC stuff is madness!IMHO!

So many utterly ridiculous stories about this sort of thing appear in the paper every day...all about the "words" we shouldnt use! We cant even tell schoolkids that they're not doing well in a particular topic, or that they have "failed" an exam. This is exactly the sort of madness that causes a lot of the probs we have with kids behaviour and attitudes today.

If it wasn't for our Mums (who feel its a bit late in life for them to move abroad), Mike and I would leave this country ( and the Broads) I'm sorry to say.

Its gone to the dogs (oops, is that "Doggist" or something?) Gasp

As is "Water Gypsy", a point that was made to our dear friend in response to the first draft of the accursed Bill.

But yes, David, your point is well made.

(BTW, I am rather looking forward to an impending court appearance to give evidence against one of our local scumbags whom we caught in the act)

WELL SAID KAREN,I FOR ONE AM FED UP WITH LIVING IN A LILLY LIVERED LIBERAL NANNY STATE!!!!One of the only things that keeps me sane is my annual/18 monthish week away from it all on a boat on the broads and now the DEGENERATE SCUM are trying to impose themselves there!!WHERE THE HELL ARE THE PARENTS OF THESE SO CALLED HUMANS???I am only 36 years old and i can remember being scared witless because a policeman caught me riding without bikelights and the trouble i might be in....1 was 13!!!!!!!26 years ago!!!I have 2 girls aged 8 and 4 and the one thing we try to instill in them is respect and manners...so far they are doing ok!1 solution may be to bring back"NATIONAL SERVICE"in some degree?Be rest assured the scrottie little plebs would think twice about doing stunts like this if they were actually punished for it and i think a few early morning revelle's followed by a ten mile run may make them think twice??? oh no there goes the blood pressure alarm but i am fuming!!!!!

In this case, Karen, it isn't P.C., it's racist, plain and simple. And, as I have said, offensive to members of the Romany race.

I can't quite decide whether this is all heading rather OT or not so I'll make just this one comment on the subject rather than cause the thread to drift further.

Essentially though I agree completely with Karen (not for the first time) and Simon W.  My wife and I are 30 and we've so far chosen not to have children.  My wife wants them, I don't.  Not because I actually don't want to have kids but because I lived in a cr*ppy area of Dundee for 8 years and the creatures I witnessed there totally changed my perception of children.  Goodness knows, once upon a time I wanted to be a teacher.  Now my wife and I are just staggered at the what kids can get away with now.  They know they can away with more or less anything so they do.  Like Simon W my wife and I feel that even though we're still young we grew up in a different world.

A friend of mine is a teacher in Canada (her home country).  The UK, due to the shortage of teachers over here, has been doing huge recruiting compaigns for years to attract Canadian teachers but she tells me that British schools and schoolchildren have such an awful reputation that it's become something of a joke amongst her colleagues - kind of like the equivalent of German WWII soldiers being sent to the Russian front.

Well we've brought it on ourselves, completely and utterly.  And what's more, now that we can't recruit teachers or police and our yob culture has become legendary across Europe, we continue to refuse to learn from our mistakes when pretty much everyone can see what needs to be done to solve it.

Anyway, that's my bit!  Smile   Please carry on.

Simon

Peter, you are absolutely right. I think it's also fair to suggest that the chances that the perpetrators of this gross act of wanton vandalism were not Romany people. Scumbags, Toerags, call them what we like, but please lets not implicate an already much maligned and persecuted racial group.
