    Yeah just noticed that at the bottom, rushed back to edit but you were a bit quick:hehe:

    Still should be properly invoiced, named and shamed and then prosecuted for not taking proper care of a child

    How have we let it get to this, where society is full of selfish, me, me, me cunts. In the end they'll get the world that they deserve, where nobody will bother to save their stupid lives because of all the shit that comes with it.

    That's the case in China where people are afraid to help in case they're collared for all the bills that might come from an act of mercy.

    I floated out to see on a blow up chair when I was a kid, my Dad was busy getting told off by the police for having a fire on the beach and nobody noticed for a while, my Dad had to swim out and get me :swim::hehe:

    In case anyone reads this thread before reading the article and is as confused as I was, this is a snippet from the article:

    "Two weeks later (after the rescue) the commanding officer of 771 received a request to pay an invoice for £7 the cost of the lilo.

    "The CO wrote replying: 'I will be happy to pay your invoice on receipt of payment for the helicopter rescue £7,000.' No response was received."

    I can't remember tbh, it was a pebbly beach so it could have been Ladram bay, we used to go there a lot.
