Therese Coffey tries to blame LABOUR for the Tory sewage scandal

Last Updated: February 24, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Rivers of Sh*t: Boris Johnson couldn’t be bothered to think about the details of his Brexit, and now the UK is suffering shortages of materials including those used to clean sewage. So partially-cleaned and harmful crap is going directly into our rivers.

Thursday, February 23 was a bad day for Environment Secretary Therese Coffey.

Not only did she suggest that we all eat turnips as a replacement for vegetables (and tomatoes) that are currently running short in supermarkets – causing a shortage of turnips as well, but she tried to pass the stink over the pumping of sewage into the UK’s waterways off as Labour’s fault:


It’s possible that everything Coffey said about Labour was true – that party, in office, should have re-nationalised the water companies when it had the chance – but didn’t.

But the current issue, of raw sewage being pumped into rivers and the sea, is entirely of the current Tory government’s creation.

Coffey knows that – or should. It is pathetic that she should try to pull the wool over our eyes in such a blatant manner.

On a related matter:

PFAS stands for perfluorinated and polyfluorinated alkyl substances, a family of thousands of human-made substances known as “forever chemicals” because they are extremely persistent and will not break down in the environment for thousands of years.

I suppose Coffey would blame this spread of toxic chemicals into a protected river, in 2023, on the Labour government of 1997-2010 as well?
