Isn't Drowning A Disadvantage ?

Proof positive that the world has gone mad:

The country's only independent lifeboat station has been told it cannot have National Lottery funds because it does not serve "disadvantaged" people in the community.

The 2,000-plus souls plucked from the sea in the 158-year history of the Caister lifeboat do not, apparently, qualify as disadvantaged under the criteria governing disbursement of lottery grants by the Community Fund.

No doubt they would've got funding if they'd claimed only to rescue blind, lesbian asylum seekers.
