RNLI to the Fore!

After writing my little blog yesterday it got me thinking about what we owe these people.

Cutting down small Coastguard Stations has been going on for years. The part timers, one man and his landrover, no one noticed, on one cared, move it all to a bigger office somewhere. But now that “bigger office somewhere” is about to be closed, the Naval and RAF helicopters about to be privatised so someone can make a profit out of others misery. Sir Fred Goodwins pension would keep them operative, but this  Government does not care.

There is however an organisation that does. The RNLI. They have been saving peoples lives for one hundred and eighty seven years, so they know a thing or two about it.  I don’t know if the government gives any sort of donation to them but they should. They are the cutting edge, doing all the work, if you are looking for experties in lifesaving these are the people to turn too. Why can’t they take over  control of the Coast Guard and helicopters? making a profit would not be their priority, but saving lives and providing community support is their priority. With a mixture of full time staff and volunteers operating to the best of their ability and training, surely these are the people who know what is best and also how to get the correct amount of value. Saving life should not be about profit and loss, you cannot put a price on each human life you save, so let the experts take over.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
