    I dont know the finer detail but Is it game over for common sense in the UK or am I a right winger?

      A bit silly on both sides, I think the trust is being oversensitive in asking them not to fund raise in this way, and the fundraisers should expect the donation to be refused if they then fund raise in this way. (after having been asked not to)

      I would say fook you and give to another cause in the locality that wasn't so prissy.
      My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.

      My definition of a sad git is any Palarse fan who has posted more than 100 times on NSC.

      Jesus wept.
      Those who got insulted and refused the money really need to lighten up.

      People these days take things and themselves way too seriously.

      The guys should be applauded for raising a good amount of money in their own time, for a good cause.

      Thanks for pointing out they had been asked not to do it. I hadn't noticed that part. Think I started skim reading towards the end as I was getting annoyed. I must calm down and improve my attention span.
      I think I side with the women who refused the money now

      The hospital should take the money and then tell them men dressing up as women was funny in 1970 (unless you're David walliams then you can make a career out of it).

      Take the cash and ask that they don't do it next year - refusing it is ridiculous. There are reasons for justifiably refusing, don't waste the effort on this sort of stuff.
