There's nothing to mediate as there's no disagreement. Cumbria has done nothing to facilitate the proving trial even though they've had the same ten years that we've spent building a boat, and show no sign of changing their attitude now. But that's OK with us just so long as they don't attempt to shift any blame when people ask the obvious questions. Our Malcolm Op's is as neutral as can be and has been attempting to work with them on this since 2008 but without the effort from Cumbria it's just impossible.Would it be worth getting someone "neutral" involved in a sort of mediation or would that make things worse ???? Just a thought
Scotland, on the other hand - what a cracking bunch. Can't wait to get up there amongst all that positivity.
