CHERYL GIBBS: Not a great film, but I still balled my eyes out

Have your say

Sleep peacefully Mother Earth, the Daily Mail is campaigning to ensure your survival with innocuous headlines like ‘Would you drink sewage?’

The story behind the headline? Thames Water’s attempts to tackle our over-use of water through recycling.

Meanwhile Nigel Farage declares he wants to clear our ‘green and pleasant land’ of windfarms and climate change slips down the agenda in the Queen’s Speech.

What baffles me is that Farage and his gang are driven by an Arcadian ideal of an England where skylarks swoop over meadows and butterflies alight on milk maidens.

Can’t they see that without strategies to cut consumption, there won’t be any skylarks or butterflies left?
