‘A clear and present danger’ said President Biden recently with regards to the Climate Emergency,.
A clear and present danger says the various Brent Council documents and press releases with regards to the Climate Emergency.
So why is the presence of untreated human sewage in the Wealdstone Brook as it runs through Brent on its way to the River Brent and then onto the River Thames not declared Code Red for the local residents? Why was a ‘Major Incident’ not declared by Brent Council using its Formal Executive Powers?
The presence of untreated human sewage along with unknown toxic gases vaporising at low temperatures from the water surface would surely be regarded as a ‘clear and present danger’ to all but the ignorant.
As a retired Brent Secondary School teacher I will have a worksheet available for every Brent Councillor at the next full Brent Council meeting (absentees will be set it as homework).
Write out 100 times;
‘The pollution of the Wealdstone Brook with untreated human sewage is a clear and present danger.’
