This is quite shocking. The current government is pushing through the flouridation of our water by putting the control with the health authorities rather than the water companies, who, thus far, have not agreed to do it. This is happening despite the legions of people who don’t want compulsory drugging of their daily fluid consumption and experts claiming it will lead to all manner of health problems.
In amendments to the water regulations, the power will shift and Health Minister Hazel Blears, when asked, said that:
anyone with concerns can drink bottled water or filter their tap water.
Charming. In other words, we have to pay twice for our water, the second time to filter out this unwanted addition.
So much for the people’s choice and being listened to. I would better you hundreds of pounds that the water in the House of Commons is filtered or bottled, and that Hazel Blears herself will have a filter ‘just in case’. Beggars belief.
