JOHN Price needs a medal; he’s doing what the people in charge should be doing, dredging the river like they did for years.

I live by the Dovey river, and there is so much shale you can nearly walk across it. The farmers here are losing land by the acre. This is why people are being flooded out all around the country – all in the name of saving the fish. 

There were always fish and vertebrates in the rivers when I was a kid. Don’t blame global warming, blame the people who are in charge with all the certificates and no common sense, and the do-gooders.


We don’t seem to have a voice.

People should get together and sue as they are not maintaining the rivers.

I am afraid this country is being destroyed by well-educated people who don’t understand how things work and refuse to listen to people who have done things properly in the past.
