UK water problem down to EU planning?
Richard North seems to have unearthed why, despite the recent downpours, hosepipe bans will remain in place. Also that Prof. Adrian MacDonald, an expert used by both the BBC and the Independent, is funded in his work, partially, by the EU.
There is little doubt that the government does hide the fact, whenever possible, that frequently unpopular or disastrous legislation emanating from the EU is disguised as UK legislation. Clearly, if it is generally known the extent to which our lives are adversely by EU laws, the already large majority wanting a referendum on our membership and the majority who want out would steadily increase until even the most devious government could not deny the people’s legitimate demands.
As the scandals and sleaze related to government gradually becomes uncovered by Leveson and other sources – surely it is time that newspapers and broadcasters declared the financial interest of their experts and commentators, if there is any, at the very start of each item. We do, as a nation, seem to be sinking in a sea of corruption.
