What on earth are we doing funding free parking for the wealthy RNLI.

By all means allocate them parking spaces close to their boat but, with £140 million being donated to their cause each year they are not short of a bob or two.

If they are strapped for cash perhaps a small levy on local boat owners or, perish the thought, charge the ‘fools, first trippers and firemen’ they aid each year who take to the water ill-equipped and with little understanding of the dangers they face.
