Water Shortage?

We live in one of the wettest parts of Europe. Every year, for a lengthy period, we wonder if the rain will ever stop. The water companies lose a third of the supply in leaks – and make a profit. Every three years the government happily brings in an extra million people from overseas. They all drink H2O and flush the toilet – I presume. Now the powers that be are telling long time residents that they use too much of the stuff and will have to be sorted out. Pull the other one.

Letter From a Reader

They’re still banging on about smoking ruining your health. Some people want to ban it. “Load of rubbish,” I say. My uncle Fred smoked 60 a day for more than thirty years and it never did him any harm. He was killed by a bus while have a coughing fit in the middle of High Street. No one has said we should ban buses.

Yours etc
