Idiots Had to be Rescued.
« on: Feb 11, 2020, 11:52:32 AM »

This makes me so bloody angry, Our men have to put their own lives at risk to save these fools. >:( We all knew the storm was coming and was to be a bad one, so why did they head for the highest mountain in Scotland? Not even properly equipped and some in TRAINERS. :o

They're the same breed of dullards that decide that a storm is a great time to go surfing...https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/storm-ciara-hastings-surfer-missing-rescue-lifeboat-rnli-video-a9325986.html

Perhaps if they had to pay for rescue, they might think twice.

Stupid, they are. Left them, I would have.

A couple of lads went climbing last week in Hackney. They climbed up the side of a train. Terrible way to go.

I was brought up to accept responsibility for all the daft things I did,
and that's how I brought up my two boys. They have told me that they get
heartily sick to death of the global blaming culture.

If you go poncing up Ben Nevis in your plimsolls and have to be rescued, you should
pay for being rescued subsequently: not with tax payers money; especially when
most tax payers are not so gyte to ponce up hills in their baffies, or if they do want to
climb hills do it in douce weather with proper hill walking equipment.

Exactly Richmond, my parents were munro baggers though I never got the bug, my daughter and her man have it though and they're off most weekends in the summer. They take a lot of equipment with them and always call in to let the centre know what routes they will be on and when they intend to be back, they also leave their mobile phone numbers too.

They were all students so why on earth would you expect them to show any intelligence.

If the university had provided them with a minimum of a 100 hours in a lecture hall, complete with an end of course exam, teaching them not to climb a mountain in winter in storm conditions, while wearing trainers & not carrying any maps or equipment, this incident would never have happened.
Make every day count, each day is precious.

I feel this way about anyone who participates in extreme sports such as potholing, climbing, skiing, etc. They are free to do as they wish but should not be bailed out free by the taxpayer. If these folks do not take out adequate insurance to fund their rescue/treatment they should be made to pay for any accidents/rescue themselves. If necessary by mortgaging their homes or borrowing.
