Bound to cause controversy but here goes....
Most people on Ribnet commented on the tragic accident in Barmouth harbour where 2 men died laying moorings.
The inquest seemed pretty fair
"The court was told the two experienced lifeboatmen, from Barmouth, were out in a vessel unsuitable for the weather.
The coroner recorded a verdict of misadventure on both men"
Now it seems the family are to start civil proceedings against the harbour authority.
Basically they are claiming they were expected to lay moorings when they shouldn't have so they are now suing their employers.
Why can't they see this was an accident? The 2 poor men were "experienced lifeboatmen" - surely they wouldn't have done anything they thought was too risky?
Suing people will NOT bring these men back.
Modern society needs to stop finding fault all the time - accidents can and will happen.
