Do National Parks agree?

It seems so.

The Broads have been listed on the National Parks site as one of the National Parks - i.e. in the main menu, for several yonks. Long before this kerfuffle. About 3 years ago I remember there was a note on the Broads page which had the “family” explanation and the extra boating bit. But they stopped. Either because there is a Deep State conspiracy, or because they judged that most people didn’t give a flying fig.

BELLA, all the examples you quote fall under the heading of 'Marketing', which is what John Packman said was all the BNP name would be used for. The examples I have quoted all come under the heading of 'legal process', for which the BNP name should NOT be used for - according to John Packman.

batrabill, if you read the transcript of the failed bid by the Harris' to obtain permission for a judicial review, you will find that the entry on the National Parks UK web site was commented on by Mr Justice Holgate, who said (emphasis added):

"The Claimants also rely upon extracts from the National Parks UK site as showing that the Broads has wrongly been presented as a statutory National Park and subject to the Sandford Principle. To some extent this has happened because of the way in which links have been created within the website. But the website has been produced by a separate organisation and they have been requested by the Authority to make changes. There should be no difficulty in these changes being made. In any event whether or not the Authority has power to use the Broads National Park as a marketing brand cannot depend upon errors of this kind on the website of a third party.

Two points here - the Court acknowledged that the reference on the web site to the Broads as a national park was an error, and the Court believed that the BA had requested changes to be made to that reference. As no changes have been made it appears that the Court was mislead. Not the only ones to be mislead, were they? The BA seem to make a habit of it.

The public comments under that article aren’t exactly complimentary. And I suspect John Packman regrets ever having that embarrassing photo taken. It does rather suggest he thinks of himself as the Messiah of the Broads.

Paladine - the commenters are the usual well-known people. I expect JM will add his 2 pennyworth soon.

And... the EDP took that picture, but you blame John Packman for it?
Is there any evil he is not responsible for?

JP is posing in front of a BA poster. Based on my 60+ years experience of photography, I would say the chances of that being a serendipitous shot are very slim.
