No, it’s too good to be true


David Davis

The “authorities” have decided that there are too many wheelie bins. What a surprise.

But the strategic problem lies in the mindset that says there ought to be any in the first place. The notion that the State ought to be responsible for rubbish-collection, and (worse!) for its ultimate disposal (how do we know they-Gestapobuggers (who brown-nose Labour people, which is to say – socialists)) is not just going to tip it into the sea….or the WATER SUPPLY…?)

Here is what I said to the Daily Mail, which actually published it within five minutes which is a record:-

The entire contents of your dustbin (remember those?) can be burnt. This is what fire is for.

You just burn it. In your yard. This returns immensely-valuable carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, where it has belonged for the past 4 billion years, rightly, and is used by plants right away, for photosynthesis. The more photosynthesis, the more food for the world, and the more animals and the more life, and the more coal in 300 million years’ time. The place for a gas is in among other gases. Global warming is good. Geddit now?

The rest of it, what we call “ASH”, goes on the garden. It promotes plant growth. That’s what it’s for. You just spread it about and dig it in.

The scary-metal-bits, and molten glass, you give to “The Dustmen”. They take it away. They can recycle it if the GreenGestapo say so, but it’s better to send it to Nigeria. Which is the same destiny anyway.

  1. My dear dad was distinctly un-green because it had not been invented, as a political concept.
    But he was a scientist who loved messing around with his immediate environment. (He made a pipe line out of used pilchard cans to carry waste water to the fruit trees. Dear mother said he would have done well in a prisoner-of-war camp.)
    He used to bung all household waste (except the glass and plastic) into a huge compost heap wherein it all disappeared. Even (surplus) tin cans – good for the soil, he maintained.
    He was right, too. Even if somewhat impractical from time to time. (And it really is not fair to expect your family to be part of a big experiment.)
    But he wouldn’t have approved the burning, I fear. Wasteful, he would have said.
