ok then Nick, I already receive their news letter by email.
I thought TAT was going to open the door for proper communication with the rsa, not a sanitised version of what they want the rsa to hear from them. Are they also going to head this up with their existing team of 3 because none of them are rsa reps, nor do they have the wit or knowledge to actually work with the real rsa.
So has TAT spoken with bullshine where the ceo claims on one hand communication is a huge problem for them, but offer nothing or no dedicated rsa reps in reply, something don't ring true to me. 2 million plus turnover with no rsa representation is not what I would class as a benefit for rsa. More of the same then.
Barry, I spoke to Mark Lloyd a week ago, since then he has sent me a number of e-mails, I've just been too busy to keep on top of everything to keep the whole planet up to date with everything. I understand your reticence and, as you and everybody else that knows me are aware, I am definitely not the AT's number one fan.
However, I am going to give him (personally) the benefit of the doubt, until such time as he gives me good reason not to and, I am going to do everything possible to communicate with Mark Lloyd and act as a "conduit" for that communication to the wider angling world.
IF it has any positive effect on comms between the AT and anglers then I will be satisfied. He has agreed in principal to a simple polling function for those subscribing to the newsletters and, is in discussion regarding more. I also have acknowledgements from Mike Thrussell Jr. and Dave Barham to publicise the AT's "willingness" to communicate and, both are prepared to give them space in their respective media outlets.....if the AT fail to come up with some reasonable two way commnication then, I'm sure both Mike and Dave will be more than happy to say that RSA gave them the chance by making the effort!
