Sorry guys, I know you have a long history of speed week, but I don't think this is good news at all.
One of the over-riding things that comes from this piece is that business is suffering since the 10mph limit and this would create a 'late season boom'
So the LDNPA don't want fast boats when it suits them, but then invites them back when it does. Where I come from thats called 'having your cake and eating it.'
The article says of the LDNPA
"After that we would want to sit down with the event organisers to discuss what they would like to do for future years and see how we could help them,"
"It could be that the organisers want to try to return to Windermere in future years, or they might appreciate holding Records Week on Coniston. We would want to discuss all options."
What shite.....they didn't sit down with the Windermere protesters to try and agree an action plan when that was proposed 2 years ago.
The article also says (event organizer) "Mr Brown said he wanted to distance the event from anti-10mph protesters who had broken the law to make their point."
I can understand not wanting to break the law but this guy should be backing the campaign to reverse the limit. The attitude of pressing ahead regardless seems like "feck you jack, I'm alright"
Towards the end of the article it says that "Cumbria Tourist Board announced plans for an emergency £60,000 media campaign following news that the county's businesses were suffering in the wake of the 10mph limit".
Save your feckin money......reverse the ban. It ain't feckin Rocket Science.
I know that this post will not be popular with a lot of people on here but I hope understand my point.
I ain't banned am I JF.
