MumsNet still not talking about nets

Despite decades of discussions, MumsNet refuses to tackle the thorny issue of fishing quotas. Said one trawler captain and mother of five: 'I'm not interested in catchment areas, unless they are talking about cod in the North Sea.'

By ignoring mothers involved in commercial fishing, the site has marginalized the 0.0000000001% of their users who own a shrimp boat. Said one captain: 'There are beam trawls, midwater trawls and large bottom trawls. None of which have anything to do with Trans issues.

MumsNet said it will not engage with people trawling for conflict and fake user accounts that smell fishy. One mother struggled to put into words how upset she was: 'I'm gutted...and filleted.'
