"It's about time that [Ices] started working with the real scientists, the fishermen, to see what the stocks are like. If there were no stocks in the sea, they wouldn't have cod tied up in their catch."

And Lorcan O'Cinneide, of the Irish Fish Producers' Organisation, told Reuters news agency: "The [Ices] advice is as useful as an ashtray on a Harley Davidson." He added: "It is simply not do-able."


Only very special people could make statements like these! Bless their pointy little ignorant heads; they ridicule science every time they speak, driving yet more nails into their own coffins.

The funny thing is that you don't hear from the fishermen often; you hear from the supposed collective voice of them, fat-cat management, most of whom wouldn't know the pointy from the blunt end of a dinghy. Speak to the fishermen and you'll hear another story.

.... and I'm sure we could get the Monster Garage folk to build an ashtray on a Harley. I'm sure they could convert the entire bike into an ashtray on wheels.

That's your second post in over a year main_board. What has happened, and when, w.r.t. Discovery Channel? I could read between the lines (based on my personal opinions, but these are ubiquitous programming standards driven by target demographic); perhaps pm me as I am sincereley interested (and it is a bit of a digression from this thread).
