Is Labour showing a shadow of intelligence over sewage?

This is happening more than 800 times a day: the routine dumping of raw sewage into rivers and the sea cannot be allowed to continue – but will the Tories be sunk, whether they support the Labour plan to stop it or not?

Take a look at this, courtesy of Feargal Sharkey:

It seems Labour wants to introduce a Parliamentary Bill to implement legally-binding targets to reduce sewage dumping on Tuesday (April 25). But that’s not the clever bit!

If the Tories block this Bill, it seems Labour will then launch a series of attack adverts – in advance of the local elections – asserting that the Tories think “it’s right” to allow raw sewage to be pumped into our rivers and beaches more than 800 times a day.

This is quite shrewd from the Labour Party.

If the Tories don’t support the Bill, they sabotage their own local election chances.

If they do support it, they impose strictures on private business, which is against their neoliberal ideology.

Not only that, but the new rules would probably be ignored and go unregulated, making the Tories look weak. And this could sabotage their chances at a general election.

It really is rather clever.

So clever that I doubt Keir Starmer or any of his minister dreamed it up. I wonder who did?

    Fascist tory puppet Starmer and his fellow fascist puppets must have been asleep when the person created this excellent piece of legislation!

    Starmer will have to act swiftly to ensure the proposed sewage bill is struck out before it is even presented to the fascist tory dictatorship – aka their fake government!

    Fascist tories don’t want their private corporate water company bros being forced to clean up our rivers!! All those private water company profits cannot be allocated to cleaning up our dirty rivers – no no – that money is for the personal use of shareholders and greedy private water company CEOS!
