I’ve dug around and found the newspaper article I referred to in a comment which has disappeared from this topic. I don’t know why it went. I thought it was on topic and apposite with congratulations for the RNLI for their resuscitation protocol. I said I’d choose them to rescue me any day.
Anyway this article is the best example I’ve ever seen of bureaucracy gone made when a life was at stake. I deplore the current day safety culture with its asphyxiating dogma of myriad rules, red tape, timidity bordering on cowardice, and the effect of lawyers getting their sticky fingers into professional judgement.
Anyway, read it and weep. Let me know what you think.
