How are we to be polluted next?

Not quite Dimbleby, but MP Jeremy Wright chairs, and the infamous Mrs P. tries to get the truth out of Cemex; the Agency; and RBC. You must not miss it!

APPLY NOW for ring side seats at last legal blood sport.

We attended several meetings during the previous consultation into tyre burning, but we do not intend to go again as it is all a FIX. There is no realistic meaningful dialogue and they hold all the Aces - and all up their sleeves at that!

Why do you bother to talk to these people? They are dishonest and just a waste of space, a waste of Public time and money. It would be better if no-one at all turned up to such a travesty of a consultation. They would make appropriate fodder for the kiln - any old garbage will do!

Ex-consultee!

I did turn up - but walked out when I heard Friends of the Earth support the use of refuse-derived fuel, which I had not previously believed to be their national policy
