I get it. MPs were faced with a choice of sewage backing up in homes or into the Sea... but to enshrine pollution in Law instead of forcing us to face the fact we need to fix the problem is how we got here in the first place... kicking the can down the road.

Actually, no, Con MPs weren't made to opt between sewage in the sea or your home. That's the narrative Tories WANT you to believe. They were faced with a choice of requiring water co.s to improve over time to reduce the harm from sewage spills, or letting them continue as today.

Disagree the latest mass releases of sewage is caused by the water industries failure to secure adequate supplies of chemicals from EU because of the perennial elephant in the room Brexit that word banned in the countries news outlets.

Agree it's a factorβ€”perfect storm of 30yrs of water co.s' underinvesting in infrastructure while paying big dividends; weak regulator (OFWAT=joke); trade barriers/HGV driver shortage making water treatment chemicals hard to procure; Govt not taking #ClimateChange seriously enough
