    I agree this is madness, But comes from a well informed source (I think [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img])We will have to wait & see, But when did any government make sense of such things.
    Take the adoption row at the moment, if my kids ended up with no guardians, don't think I would like the possible outcome under the new laws.

    Hi if red is banned how will all the existing users remove the residual dye from their fuel systems?
    This is nearly impossible and will make enforcement near impossible.
    customs at all marinas and slip ways, random inspections, it is going to cost more to inforce than the revenue raised.
    Is diesel for boats cheaper in france?
    perhaps a booze cruise is required?

    Not enough boaters around, &amp; not enough of them interested!
    If anything will work,it needs to catch the attention of the general public as part of a wider issue!

    I received this email from "10 Downing Street" today.

    You recently signed a petition asking the Prime Minister to
    "Keep trying to renew/retain derogation on pleasure craft
    diesel or mitigate the effects of its loss."

    The Prime Minister's Office has responded to that petition and
    you can view it here:

    Of course, he could have used the veto, ignored it or done anything else the rest of the EU does when a national interest comes second, but Tony isn't like that.
    Two beers please, my friend is paying.
