The recent debacle at the Ben Harp Narrowboats company beggars belief. That this company can do this to anyone is an indication that they are only fit to clean toilets for the rest of their lives. It doesn’t matter how many nice boats he has built nb Waiouru is the current boat and their treatment is criminal.
The waterways have been plagued with this type of rogue for many years and it is about time that the government stepped in to regulate the people in the business.
That such people are not pursued and gaoled is an indication that not enough members of the government own narrowboats, because you can bet your sweet ass if this had happened to a couple of MPs or senior civil servants there would have been questions asked in the house.
The Harps should be answering questions in a police station for having the audacity to defy four high court orders. Who the hell do they think they are?
From the Ben Harp web site :- Our Boats Speak for themselves,
I don't know about you but I would call this screaming at the top of its voice!
I had an idea 5 years ago …
… to try and prevent builders from screwing people over after several builders went bust owing people lots of money. It could still work
The idea being that people who had trouble with their builder would send the story to the site the builders in question would be given an opportunity to answer the allegations so both sides of the problem could be seen together. Then the site would be advertised on all the blogs and hopefully people searching for information could make a better informed choice. Anyone still up for this?
EDIT: Seems Trudy Ann had the same sort of problem
