Last night, Professor Burgess appeared briefly on ITV’s About Anglia, to talk about the Halvergate ‘Water, mills and marshes’ project. Professor Burgess was introduced as ‘the chair of the Broads Authority’.

How did she choose to represent herself? As a national parks minion. She wore a fleece displaying the words ‘National Parks’ and even used the BNP expression. Why didn’t she wear a fleece proudly displaying the words ‘Broads Authority ‘? Is she ashamed of her association with the BA?

I think you know the answer to that question yourself Pally. It's all part of the drip,drip,drip process of establishing the Broads as an actual National Park in the publics eye.
I mean that was obviously not a marketing opportunity was it?

if it is to be it is up to me.

TT, she is the current chair of National Parks UK, but she was being interviewed on a subject that was absolutely nothing to do with national parks. The Halvergate project has a number of partners involved, but National Parks UK isn’t one of them, afaik.

She said it was an opportunity to promote BNP, so why not wear something related to the Broads Authority. It was clearly a conscious decision, and most reprehensible.

Still, we’re coming to expect such behaviour.

The new staff clothing from their special deal with Colombia was supposed to have arrived & would have been an ideal time to show it off. A picture of the Southern Broads would have been good as well as the discussion was mainly centred there
