Oh well, that’s excellent then

The Foreign Office said this weekend that it had arranged military-assisted departures for eligible persons from the BVI and was putting similar arrangements in place for other affected overseas territories. In addition to Royal Marines who are on the ground providing security, Public Health England is sending three specialists to work with the chief medical officers of the territory.

That’ll get the sugar out of their diets then.

  1. I think it was you who said “the greatest contribution to public health a government can make is to keep the shit out of the drinking water”

  2. If you can’t keep the shit out of the drinking water (and mostly, thanks to Greenies, you can’t*) you dose it with chlorine to kill the e coli. If it tastes and smells of chlorine, it may be unpleasant, but it’s safe.

    *e.g. Thirlmere, once devoid of e coli, so needing no treatment. Once public access was allowed, contaminated. SO it’s not just bears that shit in the woords, it’s bare arses!

    No chance of that here, hills that fill reservoirs are inhabitated by deer, sheep, rabbits, foxes, badgers, mice, birds… and Army training plus dog walking. Local farmer I know often asked to collect a drowned sheep.

    Having said that, I’ve often drunk river water when dog walking there with no ill effects.
