Unremarkable

On a serious note...think I mentioned this on the shite charities thread...years ago a gf got talking to an old dear on a train..she turned out to be the wife of one of the directors of RNIB and she said Don't give them any money...they have so much they don't know how to get rid of it. Probably couldn't find the chequebook ;)
A friend who had been a translator for the RNIB hated Guide Dogs for the Blind with a passion. She was of the opinion that, while the RNIB financed all sorts of research and other good things, the Guide Dog lot only trained and provided dogs, hoarding up the surplus. And fund raising! Take out a friendly, warm puppy and pounds flowed into the tins...
I was quite sympathetic until allegations of RNIB staff getting cheap mortgages came to light; I must add that I don't know what came of that.

Another bloody snowflake who will be claiming PSTD next
the article in the Times quoted her recent degree from Uni
who cares about it
University 'degree' today translates as Bare pass at 11 plus 30 years ago.
