I've posted a question for the panel. It was around the possible consequences of no progress on the access situation.

I've also voted. As a 10.15 it was 56 votes cast, all in favour of greater access.

Unfortunately, stuck at home writing my thesis, but have just emailed our uni club list, so hopefully there should be a number of people get it with access to lots of IP addresses!

You can multiple vote from the same PC if you disable cookies. This is not really 'playing the game' though (more interesting is a true reflection of what the general public thinks!), although I confess to adding more than one vote myself.

Yep, I was not meaning doing a mass spam. Moreover the funny site of Uni club members rushing to vote from pc's they can do so from.

Don't forget to post a question to them as well if you feel brave enough

Good good good.


Martin Salter's ideas have proved pretty badly informed/ argued so far, so it'll be interesting to see how he does. However, it is such a shame that they can't dig up Llyn Hughes again for this debate, he's brilliant entertainment.

I guess this means the discussion is happening - stuck at work means I can't listen in, so will have to wait til tonight.

Unless, someone wants to post more snippets??

Ashley and Martin have just finished discussing the topic fairly heatidly. Martin came up with the usual arguments and a great deal of rubbish like his quote in my previous post.

Is anyone aware of anyone ever going to court for paddling a river?

I actually thought Martin Salter was winning the argument to the uninformed ear, until Ashley broadsided him with the Tryweryn as an example of a shared resource where both parties were happy. Salter spluttered a bit and had no come back - excellant!

Well, I think we lost that one badly, Salter came across as very reasonable,
Ashley was pretty poor.

Just come back in from sitting in the car park at work. Salter seemed to get the last word and probably came across with more of an argument than Ashley. I think salter sumed the anglers problem with us when he said they pay for access and we would get it for free!

First caller spouting off about how much anglers pay and we should be licenced. Why do other countries promote free access to rivers?
Keep pushing for fair access to all rivers (or better still, just go and paddle them!).

Not a good showing... never mind, you can't win them all.

lets take the wind out of that sail and campaign for free access by anglers too, on the grounds that they accept free access by us - just an idea??

hmm, anyone else notice how he described rivers used by paddlers as un-navigable? nevermind, he is very old, and is likely confused at being out of the home...
