"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    The RNLI is entirely supported by charity , it takes NO government money. it is not a 'fake charity'

    In fact it has been vociferous when the govt has tried to subsume it into the Coast Guard , or emergency services.

    It is one of the only charities that I give to readily.

    1. Thanks for making it clear, which I didn't, that the RNLI is a genuine charity and one worth supporting. Sometimes I'm too keen to shoot the government.

    2. Spot on PC. Once the thieves in adminstration get back in 2015 all RNLI south west properties will get sold off.

      Just watch.
