"Unless changes are made, people aren't going to donate their treasure finds to the nation" said the ungrateful, annoying little scrote to the press.

A lot did when I were a lad mate, and for free, and many do now. As do all amateur archaeos who find stuff during fieldwalking exercises and digs.
You shouldn't assume everyone has your stinky morals.

Oh, and they aren't YOUR finds, they're ours. So you don't "donate" them, you're obliged to hand them over. The money is ex gratia not an entitlement.

And please call a spade a spade. "People aren't going to donate" actually means "steal". Tosser.

Good morning everyone, lovely sunny day!
