Did Therese Coffey single-handedly lose the local elections for the Tories?

Raving it up: Therese Coffey likes to have a good time, and it isn’t hard to picture her dancing while the rivers overflow with condoms and tampons – or even while her government falls.

We all knew the wholesale pollution of our rivers and waterways with raw sewage, by privatised water companies, was one of the big issues of the local elections.

That’s why some of us see Feargal Sharkey as a hero of the anti-Tory effort:

But of course, he would not have had to lift a finger if the privatised water firms weren’t pumping sewage into our beloved, once-beautiful eco-system.

And who’s letting them do that? Therese Coffey, the Environment Secretary.


Perhaps it’s too early for the Tories to have got to grips with the reasons they lost 1,058 seats on local councils, because of the Coronation weekend.

But that doesn’t mean we should let Coffey off the hook. The damage being done every day is appalling.

For example:

“Onward to the general election,” says Mr Sharkey.

Yes. And the Tories probably won’t even have got the message by then!
