Incinerating incontinence

“The cabinet secretary for external affairs revealed that despite reports that the UK government may move [President Trump’s] visit to Scotland, no discussions have taken place between the two governments on the expected visit.” https://www.greens.scot/news/trump-visit-details-sought-by-greens-at-holyrood

There’s that partnership of equals again. Dump Trump on Scotland like so many tons of toxic waste…

“Huge volumes of what are known in the trade as ‘absorbent hygiene products’ are produced in the UK. But it is difficult to deal with as its dampness makes incineration expensive. Dumping the waste in landfill is the other current option, but the material takes decades to degrade and heavy and rising landfill taxes are aiming to end the practice. …
‘The great thing about life today is people are living longer, but what comes with that is often incontinence issues. We want this to be a growing issue, because we want people to live longer.'” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/mar/20/british-tampons-and-nappies-set-to-fuel-power-stations

Look forward to a long old age, fuelling power stations.
