Environment Secretary George Eustice said a new legal duty would be imposed on water companies to “progressively reduce” the amount of sewage pumped into waterways – as Tories sought to avoid a Lords defeat
In a, so called, developed country how is it that any raw sewage is deliberately pumped into any waterways, let alone impose a duty to progressively reduce such.
This should no longer be ‘Victorian’ Britain for we should have progressed after so many years much further. I think much of this is down to the fact that much of the UK sewage system is still Victorian and this is down to the total lack of investment over the years, which in the UK is not unknown, a case of out of sight, out of mind.
In the UK this is done all the time, railways, jet propulsion, in fact most thing which the UK was the inventor of, but investment is always way short.
You can’t count on the Government for they are only bothered with political motives, mainly to score points off each other, rather than the parties working for the common good of all in the UK.
If labour are for it then the Conservatives will not be and then if the Conservatives are for then labour is against. then there is the Liberal Democrats, or is there, for who knows what they stand for. The SNP are only there for Scotland or again are they, for are they only there for the SNP.
But this is not helping the sewage situation, but investment there is in a long queue, a very long queue.
