Sure, just dump raw sewage into the Thames

It's not like a ship will go down where the out put is and the passengers will drown in agony in a literal river of shiat

Keep electing conservatives, it seems to be working out great for you.

The moneyed folks that own/control large portions of salmon rivers will raise a stink.

I watch a YT channel that is focused on the shores of the Thames and to see the variety of wildlife that has returned to that river should please everyone except the ogres.  F*ck the ogres sideways.

The similarities between Sri Lanka and Great Britain seem to be disturbingly similar for two countries whose histories converging to this moment have been extremely different. Separate and conquer economically is a great means of destroying an island nation.

"This is a scandal. Children are getting ill swimming in their local rivers..."

Well thank goodness they stopped sending £200M to the EU every week and can properly fund the NHS.

Maybe the UK is on to something. The country is going into the winter facing an imminent heating fuel shortage and by allowing more pollutants and toxic chemicals in their rivers, they'll inevitably catch fire and provide everyone with a cheap source of heat. Problem solved.

You'd think the Thames literally not moving at times due to the refuse would be a lesson that only needed teaching once as well.  Oh well, enjoy the stink.

Yes, but I prefer to work with nuance and subtlety.  Too many from the colonies start leaving messages and Ms. White (a TOTAL babe) might have to restrict commenting.

Yeah, I was just about to ask baka if he was specifically referring to the Princess Alice.

It's not like this is new for the Tories. Didn't Margaret Thatcher claim that all that sand between the land and the sea wasn't actually a "beach" so pollute it all you want?

They had clean rivers in the UK? Can we get snopes on that? I think most of them can give the Cuyahoga a run for it's money.

Between this and the bank deregulations it looks like the Tories want to speed run to Doomsday.  Although somehow I doubt Rhona Mitra will want to save their asses.

Yeah, but there's no way to spin this in such a way that it could be made to make Labour look bad, so there's no way that Lois's dad will touch this thread.

Can't wait to hear what Tony Benn thought about issues like this about 50 years ago in the next thread in which that guy chooses to participate, though.
