Water Troubles

30 Apr

I took this from the bus on my way home thinking to post about the evils of fluoridation and Hull City Council’s wish to override the wishes of the surrounding villages and pollute the water with toxic chemicals so that the ignorant, sugar loving children of the city of culture would have fewer dental fillings and extractions. I was going to mention how a certain councillor who has no qualifications in dental matters has popped up from under his slime covered stone to pontificate grandly on the ‘benefits’ of compulsory medication. I was going to drag in an allusion to ancient troubles going back to the late 14th century between Cottingham and Hull regarding the water supply and how the gentlemen of Cottingham would put carrion in the dyke that carried water funnily enough along this very street, Spring Bank, and how they could only be calmed by an edict from Pope John XXI … I was going to do all this then I saw that the Council had put the plans on hold because they don’t have the Do Re Mi as Woody Guthrie used to sing. So you see years of austerity have saved me the bother of writing all that and you the trouble of reading it.

I note that this nursery on Spring Bank is taking in babies aged six weeks! I mean six weeks old, at that age you could put them in your handbag (with handles or not) and go to work …

    You know how at one time celebs used to carry tiny doggies in their designer handbags & now they don't? Too many thousand quid bags ruined. That's probably why women don't carry babies in their bags.

    That's a bit early to have them in daycare, though they probably don't know the difference at that point!
