Postbox Fairy

Not very charitable?

I dropped some money today into the tin of someone collecting for a kidney charity, which led to a conversation in which she informed me of her opinions that she wouldn't need to do this if it wasn't for:

- asylum seekers, who were a severe drain on the NHS and were freeloading on taxpayers money
- as were the severely disabled, who should have been aborted
- as were most people who claimed to be depressed, and who should just pull themselves together

(I'm not exaggerating - she literally came out and said all of the above)

Being British, I simply expressed my polite doubts on these subjects.

What would you have done?
