Shifting rubbish to China a waste
THE media has told us that millions of tons of British plastic etc, intended for recycling, has been transported to China, at huge expense, but without much information.
So I believe that British public money has been wasted, paying irresponsible contractors to get rid of an obligation to the planet we live on, which our Government scorns.
I see this as a typical feature of Conservative economics, of no ethical principle, either for the environment or public taxes, shabbily concealed. But I do not really know the facts, since they are hidden from me, so I have to guess.
It strikes me that some Conservative voters might guess in the opposite direction, that there are some Chinese and Indonesian businessmen who are so monumentally stupid that they would pay vast sums of money for material of no value to be transported across the world, as if they did not have enough of their own, and then they would dump some of it in landfill.
Surely they could take rubbish from somewhere closer, like India?
But I think it unlikely any businessmen on earth would act like that.
My complaint is against my Government and the Media, that we should be told clear facts which were concealed. Neville Westerman Meadow Rise, Brynna
