It's all on another thread guys

BBC Radio 2 - Powerboat bashing

Anyone hear BBC Radio 2 this afternoon? They had a phone in about 'speed boats' in relation to the sad incident this weekend in Dumfries.





Highly disappointing that they seemed to concentrate on the negatives of the sport, and then got onto the kill cord incident with Rib Millie - and a lot of generalisation and speculation.

Do puppy smugglers really get "time" in the UK or are you just trolling?

I only ask as I can do that run in 40 minutes and I have a lot of cargo space...

Whilst it will be a bit sad for their relatives, the BBC report on them makes me think there won't be too many tears shed over their demise.
