Nope, your wrong Karen, it is a Narional Park, ans how do I know that? Because John Packman keeps telling us so, Ive seen him , he wears a big hat, he must be right.
Yup even though he is a d*** h*** he must be right.

We may as well just give up on the NP name thing. No point peeing into the wind and getting stressed.
I now take the view that they can call it what they like. As long as Sandford is absolutely kept out of the equation, it makes jot all difference to me.

I think Exile has the right idea, we just need to keep aware of what’s going on and make sure Sandford isn’t smuggled in via the back door.

I have noticed that the BA removes information from its web site quite quickly, which makes keeping track of their activities a little difficult. Recording matters of interest or concern on platforms such as this is beneficial to those not quite as unconcerned as others about the Machiavellian machinations of certain parties.

John Packman was interviewed about the competition, on Radio Norfolk this afternoon. The interview can be heard here. It starts about 40 minutes in.

If it’s publicity the broads is after then I’d say the chances are theres a fair but not middling chance of the BNPF coming first second or last. In any of those positions a big marketing spin off could ensue, winning, just missing out.... or the reason it came last with stats about it and turkeys from Norfolk voting for Christmas etc. And before anyone says it I’m Norfolk and good, but I do celebrate Christmas! Whatever the result all publicity is Norfolk and...

A planning application for development at the Study Centre on Carlton Colville marshes has been submitted. One of the consultees, Natural England, has submitted a report which included the following comments:

"the development “would...have a significant impact on the purposes of the designation of The Broads National Park”

and

“The proposed development is for a site within The Broads National Park.”

There are two points here. Firstly, we have an organisation, sponsored by Defra, who is going against the government's (Defra's) policy of NOT regarding the Broads as a national park. Secondly, if they regard the Broads as a national park, then they must also think that Sandford applies and they could well give advice on that basis, which could well be inaccurate and and embroil the BA in legal challenges.

I don't think it's time to throw in the towel just yet.
