Totally off topic but don’t care

Radio charges may force lifeboat stations to close

"Lifeboat crews who save hundreds of lives off Britain's coast each year could disband following a Government move to charge them for radio licences. " - That's it, give New Years Honours to sports star 'heroes' and tax the real heroes out of existence.

  • Whatever happened to joined-up government?

    Lifeboats should be funded by the users of the service, whether they are poor fishermen or rich yacht-owners. The easiest way would be a port (or marina) charge. The lifeguards who work on beaches should be funded by the local council (indirectly through tourism revenues).
