Black Death Back In Britain?
Read this tale of terror from today's Daily Mail. Read it and wretch. It's beyond belief.
Black Death bacteria found in bins left uncollected for fortnightHow's that for a headline from hell?
Now see some more snipped from the same shocking story.
Dustbins which are only emptied once a fortnight have been found to harbour bugs from the same family of bacteria that ravaged Europe during the Black Death.Aught not alarm bells already be ringing and sirens screeching, right across the realm?
Samples taken during a study of the health hazards associated with fortnightly collections tested positive for a string of potentially deadly bacteria, including bugs from the yersinia family.
In the Middle Ages one particular strain - yersinia pestis - caused the devastating plague which is estimated to have killed 75 million people in the space of just three years.
... only last week the issue became a high profile issue at local elections when voters registered their opposition to the scrapping of weekly rubbish collections by toppling councils of all parties.Can you comprehend that?
Officials at the Environment Department know about the study, but still insist there is no risk to public health in fortnightly collections.
Last month scientists warned that rubbish left out for a fortnight before collection could trigger a string of serious health problems including asthma.
Levels of bacteria and fungal spores produced by decaying waste were ten times higher in streets where the bins are collected fortnightly instead of every week.
And here we all were thinking Britain was about to be cured of the plague of Blair.
Here's the whole of this scandalous story.
Surely, in the name of sanity, someone somewhere in authority has got to get to grips with this shameful shambles.
Since spine chilling shit such as this, simply must be sorted.
And, sorted sometime seriously sodding soon.
If not even effing faster.
Contact you local council/councillor via this link.
And keep on kicking the living crap out of them till they see some sense.
This is THAT serious.
