  4. In response to Nigel's mention of what has happened to my boat here is an update. My boat was sunk - I say 'was sunk' as we now know it was intended to sink my boat and 'they', the enforcement squad, were looking forward to it. I knew this and we now have evidence. It was taken unlawfully in breach of an undertaking to the court. It was taken to a place with deep water. The boat yard, who are entirely innocent in the matter, put pumps in the boat and the boat sunk when there was a power supply problem. I arranged for my possessions to be delivered to a storage

  5. My daughter tells me LOL means “laugh out loud”? I don’t know, it seems to be used that way. Supposing that was referring to Geoff’s case, which lost him his home and nearly everything he had – why is that something to laugh about? As one of those Nigel refers to as believing it better to fight and lose rather than roll over and lose, it seems Geoff would do it all over again, although I would hope that he did so better armed with knowledge of protocols and procedures, less reliant on jobsworth legal-aid lawyers, and more canny as to handling things generally. It's that knowledge t

  12. Alan I have given this a lot of thought as I have been driving and I guess as you might expect I am struggling for an answer at present as I am rather angry about the way I and others have been ignored over WM, so maybe just as well I am struggling.I know you and many others have tried to engage with CRT and seen no results, now that might be because we have high expectations compared to CRT's rather low expectations, maybe we think that boaters are more important than CRT do, but then they seem to do a lot of things that effect boaters and make no sense to most. I guess you and others have t

  15. I didn't think there were any farms at all in South London, but a little surfing has revealed this: http://www.londontown.com/LondonInformation/Sights_and_Attractions/Deen_City_Farm/39b1/ Their map even shows that they appear to be alongside the mighty River Wandle. Who's laughing at your farmer's mooring dream in London now?

  16. Interesting. For three hundred years common sense and personal responsibility have sufficed regarding how we use canals, now we have a society that believes it's always somebody else's responsibility to keep us safe. I know I'm a grumpy old man, but I say remove all the safety signs and let natural selection moderate the planet's over population. No he wasn't, not if he was going down at Hillmorton.

  18. Oh dear, another dreams who ha plunged in without any thought to the practicalities of making their dream a reality, not even close. All I can see in the near future is grief. Did you not do any research at all? have you considered the practicalities such as you will need to go and fill your water tank maybe every 10 days, your toilet cassette will need emptying VERY often, you will need to haul everything from coal to groceries down a towpath and occasionally heavy awkward gas bottles. Living on a boat is not all beer and skittles, I speak from living aboard for 15 years, don't get me wron

  19. It may not be fair, and it can seem impenetrable, and yes, the layman is at a considerable disadvantage – but: the biggest mistakes corporations like BW/CaRT make is when they go after people with nothing to lose, and nowhere to go. Then the boot is on the other foot, and you will find the big corporations bemoaning the unfairness of being sued by the indigent. Of course, such people cannot pay legal professionals and so have to be capable of learning how to DIY, and yes, that still puts them at a disadvantage – but it is an overcomable obstacle as I have illustrated, even if not for every

  20. I have no quarrel with the cynicism of that post, but I do decry the defeatism of it. If we were all to despair of justice by reason of manifold injustices, the judiciary would never change for the better – and for all the current failures, the present day system is so far improved upon the situation even of a century ago that it is all but unrecognisable. In great part, that is down to those who have entered the arena and played by the rules in defiant challenge to then current injustices and [largely by reason of publicity] have succeeded in gradually forcing greater public accountab

  21. I did not ask for the fire service here in Bedfordshire to take a couple of days at our marina, i'm sure that the crews liked the change away from there station. they asked if they could inspect my boat, I did not ask them. I did not ask for replacement smoke detectors or monoxide detector replacement. I would have paid them for replacements, there were just given and fitted. after all I had already bought and fitted what I needed. they also asked about exit from my boat in the event of a fire while on board and were happy that I could exit either at the front or back. I think it is excelle
