Here we go:

"Second, the current system of marine licensing is outdated, opaque and overly complex. We will establish a system that is more efficient and transparent"

Hmm, worst senario could be compulsary licences, or how about a conjestion charge for the Solent

Tax, tax,tax,tax,tax,tax.

We all know there's only one real motive behind it with this bunch of clowns. How to part everyone with as much cash as possible in as short a space of time.

Sorry, mustn't forget-let's drag everyone down to the same common denominator too.

Yes, no doubt based upon the size of your outboard

This is just more eco BS. If the govenment really want to preserve the fish stocks, as suggested in the white paper (monitoring recreational fishing etc), they should just tell the foreign trawlers to Foxtrot Oscar
