British Waterways transitional team

I see that The British Waterways transitional team to charity status has managed to get itself included in the latest edition of Private Eye once again. I have read Private Eye for many years and the reputation of the Eye for shining a light into dark corners and exposing the truth is legendary.

The whistle-blowers are obviously letting more secrets out of the bag. It does not bode well for the future. The finances don't stack up and if the Rochdale canal is typical of the rest of the system, the doo-doo is very deep and must stink to high heaven.

So I presume the transitional team meetings will be having brain storming sessions about the shape and size of the volunteer collectors charity boxes. I wonder if there will be a standing charge for each lock gate, levied by a toll collector volunteer.
