Sometimes I lose my faith in human nature.

Fort instance, see this article on the BBC News website. Vandals on the Isle of Wight have punctured an inflatable RIB lifeboat seventeen times.

Why? What sort of mindless idiots vandalise a lifeboat, for Christ's sake?

I hope that the miscreant(s) get a suitable punishment, ideally something with a heavy social aspect.

I agree. Sometimes I wish we had a ability to somewhat thin out the genepool when I read storys like this.

Putting them out to sea in a slowly sinking inflatable would be my ideal.

ps. Happy New Year David to you and yours.
