Kerching! Another Life Saved…

Air ambulances, Lifeboats, Mountain Rescue (and cave rescue and others probably) and damned little public money to help (except perhaps the Scottish Air Ambulance).

We all wish the Hamster well (despite the dumb stunt laddie) – hopefully it shoots the dependence of these services on charitable donations and fundraising near to the top of public attention.

Here’s an idea – put one less (Trident replacement) missile into each submarine and spread the largesse around the life-saving communities. That’s got to be a win-win – keep our WMD and save lives – woohoo.
