Stop pontificating!
It`s too easy to post here! Get some letters written?
Ask yourself, how you vote and why.
Do any of you realy support Greenpeace.
How do you fancy 4 per litre for petrol?
A few words are fine on a website. The reality is something else.
We all want a better, cleaner, more eco-friendly world. But how many of you are willing to pay for it?
Judging by the gripes concerning taxes, the cost of tackle and bait. Not many of you!
So. What price a cleaner world? demon
We don`t use J`s anymore!!

A cod in the Thames Estuary now becomes a cod at 3.5lb, when I was a lad a cod wasnt a cod until it was 6lb. Im NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS YEARS CODING.


It's that generation/memory thing again!

When I was a lad a 6lb fish was definitely a codling.

(codling only become 'cod' when they are big enough to spawn - 6lb is still an immature codling)

There used to be plentiful cod of spawning size from the South Coast beaches before you were a lad Sam.

What price a dirtier world?? Will your children or grandchildren be able to survive on this planet? The ice is melting faster than ever, they say there will be no ice at all at the poles by 2080. Extreme weather is becoming more extreme and more frequent.
