Great - but why did they want to tamper in the first place and how much did all the consultants fees cost the tax payer???

It's good news but I think it's a sop to win votes and we'll get shafted after an election if they get back in. Too little too late.

We the british ask for everything we get , from the polltax to this . If every one just put 2 fingers up they could never inforce it .
the only answer we have at present is to go live abroad .

I bought a sea angling magazine last week , to try and get some some more info on why I can't catch anything , and all the anglers seem to to say take only what you can eat and put fish back if they are small or heven't spawned etc .

As a business owner, its people like me.. in the main.. and I'll argue the point if anyone wants !! who fund GB Plc on top of the tax payer.. but I get no surprise at how many people I constantly hear of, who want to leave. This counrty is placing ever higher demands of the contributors to the treasury.. the bubble is about to burst IMO.

I think we need to be careful or the thread will get too political.

Aint that the problem everywhere Mat . as soon as someone says anthing its too Political , racist , sexist etc etc .

If it were about a government tax on boats could we discuss that , or would it become to political , so we have to be quiet and get shit on again .

This is about yet another tax , leisure fishing tax to be exact , it has nothing to do with conserving fish .
same as gas guzzler tax has nothing to do with green issues , or speed cameras to do with safety or speed .etc etc . But as long as they can keep small groups running about like headless chickens discussing the rights and wrongs of the particular peice of legislation (tax) that effects them , the nation as a whole loses sight of whats really going on .

I expect that might be tolerated a bit longer - if you search red diesel you will find more than one thread...

That would be a sad day because I and Ian are not 'ranters' just expressing an opinion.. which I'm sure is echoed by many
