WWF UKs total income rose seven per cent in 2014 financial year

WWF UK's total income for the year ending June 2014 rose to 62.2m, an increase of 3.8m, or 7 per cent, from the previous year.

A total of 19 people earned between 60,000 and 150,000, two more than 2013.

The highest earner, believed to be chief executive David Nussbaum, received 140,000 and 150,000, the same figure as he earned in 2013.

I am registered but if you have replied to a survey or sign up to a website with your telephone number and opt to receive info from associated companies then it appears that you are back in play. I don't think it stops the Indians from calling.

...looking after a neighbours 3 year old for 5 hours, because they're out of options and desperate... Only to find that the child's father was in alone.

Football clubs (I'm looking at you, Arsenal and Chelsea) that hire flag wavers. What is the point? Just let fans bring their own for God's sake.

Some kind of manufactured attempt by plastic clubs to jump on the ultras bandwagon after the likes of Dortmund have shown them up in the Champions League

Everyone on buses. ***** the lot of them.

School kids that get on with their shit smelly fast food and leave it lying all over the place... the ones that get on one ******* stop because they're lazy and fat as **** to waddle 100 yards. How they also have no spacial awareness unless there is two seats free and cram the front of the bus so despite there bring room for a good couple of dozen people mean people can't get on.

Evertone seems to think buses are a free for all when they turn up and that it doesn't matter you have been waiting 20 minutes longer than them but push on anyway, usually stealing any remaining seats and making you stand up in the process.

Loud as **** tossers (usually school kids again) but also usually women, people on phones and groups of blokes of an age they should know so much better shouting loud enough to be heard at a heavy metal gig on a quiet bus.

Oh and those playing music loud off their phones and just as bad those who have headphones but have it so loud they might as well not have bothered! Probably the same people that need to shout at 100 decibels to each other as above.

:veryangry

End of rant.

If the Arsenal fans don't see the flags waving - how will they know when to celebrate a goal?

Teenagers.

The cringeworthy Irn Bru ads.

Are they meant to be funny? Or are they cleverly self-deprecating in a way that goes way over my head?

I've now changed my mind. Come the revolution, it won't be Health & Safety first up against the wall - it will Advertising Agencies.

People who listen to Radio 1, who don't like Radio 1
