British Waterways press release for the Lee boat clearance

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

Yes, mention of Sally Ash and the 1995 Act on the same piece of paper. We hear Ms Eichmann is currently undergoing flailing to ensure her place in the bunker after all the lies she has told.

Lee Consultation – breaking news

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

The consultation is published here;

British Waterways Consultations

With a closing date 7 weeks away from the date of publishing, yet another illegal act by BW.

WIth this choice gem of disinformation;

To qualify for a boat licence (as laid out in the 1995 British Waterways Act) a boat must have a ‘home mooring’ – somewhere where it may lawfully be kept when not being used for cruising. An exception is made for boats which hold a ‘continuous cruiser’ licence, which requires them to genuinely move around the waterway network without mooring in any one place for more than 14 days. Some boats on our canals and rivers, and in this particular area, hold a continuous cruiser licence but are moving only limited distances, if at all, and mooring in just a few locations.

Prizes are available for the person who finds the most lies in the above paragraph.

And who has made the FOI request for the evidence for this statement?

The plan has been drafted in response to… …the concern raised by other waterway users
