OK, yes, the Coastguard does excellent work.
But Dear Lord in Heaven, how can you write an entire editorial about the rescue of mariners at sea without mentioning the RNLI?
I mean seriously?
The Coastguard answers the telephones, it\’s the RNLI that puts out the vast majority of the boats.
Yes, of course, I\’m seeing conspiracies where none exist but the Coastguard is tax financed, the RNLI is not only entirely charitably financed, showing that this Big Society of voluntary cooperation is entirely possible, it adamantly refuses to ever take the Government shilling.
And in GuardianWorld that just isn\’t allowed, is it?
Cocks they are.
