This was one of the very first arguments to stay in the EU.
I used to tell people would happen if the UK would leave the EU. The water would get a hit because the UK wouldn’t be able to get what is needed to clean water and the gov.uk would go stuff it to any clean air/water idea. Because of lack of staff, paperwork, delay at borders, cost etc etc.
But would the loons listen to what I say, fingers, ears, lalala was all I got.
“Government says polluters can dump risky sewage into rivers as Brexit disrupts water treatment. Supply chain disruption leading to fears of water treatment chemical shortage.”
As wonderful Jane Godley says I’m RAGING !!!
