    Sacking was too much of a punishment.

    But how about Veteran coastguards sacked for rescuing car from cliff edge after bosses told them to stand down . Really?

    The article has backfired and led to an increase in donations or the RNLI
    RNLI sees 'sharp increase' in donations following report criticising its overseas work
    Isn't inews part of the Independent?
    Will keep a watch on their end of year accounts to see which statement turns out to be more valid
    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

    It’s covered in their annual reports. Presumably simply saying “we spend 2% of our annual expenditure overseas in prevention work and we source major donations specifically for this purpose” sounds too reasonable and doesn’t have the same Daily Mail ring though.

    It’s a shame that certain papers in the U.K. have put British lives at risk by winding up the gammons so much that long term donations may drop.
