I must admit that I didn't read it properly so I see
what you mean. It will still be very interesting to
see what comes of it though.

Yes, indeed, BB. They must be a very wealthy couple, High Court London! If they fail and the BA costs are awarded against them you are looking at very serious money, eye watering serious money.

There again, their latest action included Sutton Fen. Sutton Fen is owned by the RSPB. Could these owners of the "Big House" be figure heads! Being bankrolled by an organisation that is so secretive with its detailed finances that people have reported the same to the Charities Commission. No doubt that well known Catfield resident will be along in a minute with the SP.

I must admit I was not aware that the Harriss's long running battle with the EA involved Sutton Fen as well. The two Fens are seperate although I suppose any abstraction affecting Catfield Fen may well impact Sutton Fen as well.

I don't think the RSPB has any need to resort to Sandford anyway - there are enough European Directives around to fit any required need.

And presumably, you will be welcomed at the Charity Commission and public accounting bodies, not to say the police, with your evidence of "corruption" in both the BA and the RSPB or is it just "corruption" only in your view????

Corruption is your word Marshman. Withholding
information with regards to financies and
governance at a charity is a serious
contravention of the commission rules it does not
necessarily imply corruption but maybe a culture
that they would prefer not to be in the public
domain.
May I suggest one book you may like to read is
"Isles of the West" by Ian Mitchell. It is a most
enlightening read by an acclaimed journalist.
Plenty of seafaring in it as well.

Mr Harris CBE is a former chairman, chief executive and assistant managing director of P&O, so I would hazard a guess that he is fairly well-heeled. He has already shown himself to be a very resourceful and determined individual. I just hope that the considerable costs that will be incurred by the Authority are levied solely against the National Park grant and not, by any sleight-of-hand and creative accounting, extracted (even partially) from the tolls account.

I don't know about Sutton Fen being involved in the previous action, but the RSPB has an interest in Catfield Fen, as they manage that part of it which is owned by Butterfly Conservation.

I do not too frequently read the topics on the NBF as I
am not a member.
I note with some interest that this forthcoming action is
also a topic there and a few predictable correspondents
are active.
That aside, the idea of the complainants being financed
by an organisation who might not wish to mount a
challenge in there own name has come up over there.
I wonder if it is plagiarism, coincidence, or knowledge.

The RSPB has been mentioned in this context. Their name was connected with the Harris' insofar as they (RSPB) manage part of Catfield Fen (on behalf of Butterfly Conservation), and the two abstraction licences that were refused were in relation to a borehole next to Catfield Fen and another near Sutton Fen (which is owned by the RSPB).

I have seen nothing to suggest that the RSPB is financially supporting Mr Harris' legal challenge and it could be that someone is adding 2 and 2 and making 5, or simply grinding an axe.

I feel that any court case would be important in determining the technical and legal aspects of what has occurred.  Important because the general public are increasingly sceptical about bodies such as the BA making decisions that are difficult to comprehend.  The arguments on this thread demonstrate both sides of this complex matter and yet the fact remains that public confidence in organisations that are supposed to be protecting the public interest are at an all time low.  For the Authority to have 'Authority' it is absolutely essential that people have trust in them.....At present they don't.
