Seek professional advice/confirmation before acting on such at all times.
Users who are found to promulgate FAKE NEWS on the forum in regard to this issue, intentional or otherwise, may find their access terminated. It is your responsibility to provide references to bona fide sources.
FAKE NEWS, in this regard, is that which is posited by organisations, media, etc., that is repeated on the forum, or used to support personal opinion/hypothesis posted by users - FAKE NEWS is not necessarily the personal opinion/hypothesis being posted in itself, any issues with such should be challenged respectfully.
IN ADDITION it seems that conspiracy theories are finding their way onto the forum. This is not the place for such content. Users who post it may find their access limited or permanently suspended. Please leave it where you find it.
I thought it was a good idea.Many/most/all / a vocal few** Thames users were not in favour of being taken over by CaRT, simply due to the certainty that CaRT would take all the money "belonging" to the Thames and squander it on the undeserving poor in the canal system ?
The fact that the bribe offered to CaRT was nowhere near enough for them to take on that particular "chalice" is neither here nor there. !
