Simply that I would have thought Paladine. Assuming embraced means held on both sides.
My guess is that they are trying to point out that the Broads are the only "Park" that you can step out of into a major city. I think that everyone understands that National Parks and cities are either end of whatever scale one would like to choose, so I do not think that they are "claiming" Norwich.

As for the bickering within the BA. pretty normal I would have thought. Often people who put themselves up for such positions are full of self importance and not keen on any of their colleagues being seen to be more important.
Whilst an elected authority seems a good idea that will open another can of worms. Who gets a vote? Certainly it cannot be people with such tenuous links as being a toll payer, angler or the like.
In Britain location is the only factor that entitles one to a vote and that would be the way this would have to go too. That gives a small local population all the say and power. Given that many of them only live there and do not use the Broads at all that narrows the power even further as they will probably not bother to vote.

As ever this will all blow over and go away again and little will change. Anyone with experience of working in or with such organisations will probably agree with that. Any change that happens will be an awful long time coming. JP will be long retired by then.

But at least it gives the heavy duty BA bashers a chance to come out of the woodwork to vent their spleen. Plus it also gives the EDP a chance to play at being a real paper with it's "two day investigation".

Finally it gives us a chance on here to get another 40 page plus thread going. Wink

If your assumption is correct Harlo, then the B.A. is wrong because Sheffield Embraces the Peak District in much the same way Norwich embraces The Broads.

As does Winchester 'embrace' the South Downs National Park.

Only my assumption TT and Paladine.
With out looking your examples up I think that Paladine might have a point. I think that there is a river that goes into Winchester that is likely in the NP (the name escapes me). It is therefore embraced on both sides by the city.
I do not know of any point that happens in Sheffield but will give way to local knowledge. I thought that Sheffield, although adjacent to the NP, did not go either side of it at any point.

I'm very impressed the the EDP for a change. A good journalist, well written, and accurate.

I wonder if the Toll issue and the HBO's voting themselves a toll reduction will come up.

Well if it doesn't, it should!  So lets hope the forum content on these matters has been read as part of the research...

TT and Paladine,

I thought you two would have known better than to bring some truth into Packman's way of thinking.

Shame on you both. Smile
