What a farce, just remember not to vote them back in when we finally get the chance to have OUR say on the matter.

I wonder if we could arrange for him to be on a leaky boat while the networks are down...

Back on topic,
Ofcom need tellling quite severely how out of order this idea is. Lets get emailing-and spread it around too. Even the general public will be appalled by this.

There hasn't been a mention on this thread yet that it isn't just charges for radio spectrum - the proposal is that radar will also be charged (and some aeronautical navaids), although EPIRBS would be exempt

The consultation asks: "We are inviting views on whether charities whose objective is the safety of human life in an emergency should receive a discount". If you feel strongly, respond to that invitation

.... The most galling part of it is, the councils rely on these charities to provide a safety service which they (under current legislation) must have in place.

If the units ceased to be, it would cost the government tenfold.

Have gone on and voiced my concerns.

GITS.

Is it the miserable old fart who complained we should be annoyed about or the people who actually listened and carried out the ban???
