Trade with EU nations is picking up! The Netherlands is sending us SEWAGE, including human waste

It seems this is all the UK is good for, now.

After the revelation that failed Australian politician Tony Abbott has been appointed to an advisory position on the Board of Trade, it turns out that the Netherlands is also sending us human waste:

Sewage sludge containing human waste from the Netherlands has been passed for import to the UK, to be used on farmland as fertiliser, despite concerns over the safety of its use.

Spreading the sludge on farmland is banned in the Netherlands, where incineration is preferred, but allowed in the UK. Dutch water authorities are eyeing the UK as a possible destination for their sewage, after problems at an Amsterdam incineration company left them lacking disposal options.

A permit for the shipment of 27,500 tonnes of municipal sewage sludge was issued in February by the UK’s Environment Agency, according to a document obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Greenpeace’s Unearthed investigative unit and seen by the Guardian.

Well, you can’t say you weren’t warned.

Some of us have spent years warning that the only future for the UK under a Conservative government is down the toilet.

  1. Growing Flame

    Seriously, though, this is all about “cutting red tape and regulations” that are “stifling British initiative”.
    So we import sewage that the Netherlands dare not use for fear of contamination.
    Actually, we DO use British human waste on British farmland but it probably wouldn’t meet EU regulations so it would not be used by more hygienic countries.

    For that matter, British straw is exported to the Low Countries to use for horses or to cover bulbs over the winter. Other European farmers just could not see any point in selling such cheap material. But British farmers are now so cash-strapped they will sell anything.

    Low incomes , low standards, low expectations. These are the stimuli for our “world-beating enterprise”!
