…demanded by grieving relatives:
The Browns want to see restrictions for private vessels covering speeding and alcohol drink-drive limits, as well as a legal requirement for those on board to wear life jackets and undergo safety training.
Their petition has so far attracted more than 2,500 signatures.
The trial was told that Shepherd, of Paddington, had entertained up to 10 women on the Eighties-built Fletcher Arrowflyte GTO.
He had been caught speeding before and was warned about the importance of life jackets.
And he’d ignored this. Why do they think he wouldn’t ignore these laws too?
The Browns say that Shepherd was not properly deterred from speeding because only bylaws had been violated.
Which might have a fraction of a glimmer of sense if he hadn’t gone on the run after being found guilty!
Which I think you’ll find is more than a byelaw.
