    Yes, we are OK as we are on mains supply for water but a little further out they are on tank water which they have to collect from the roof so you don't really want supper phosphate and such like in your drinking water, the other thing that amuses me is all the farm run off that goes into our river such as from top dressing right down to cattle pee and poo this happens for well over 180k to the next city where it goes into their water reservoir He He.

    We have had problems with nitrates and phosphates running into the rivers and killing the wildlife. Go organic I say and get rid of the chemicals.

    Super phosphate is organic but you don't want it in large amounts. It is remarkable how the Thames recovered just goes to show nature wins in the end. I hope Julia wins and gets rid of that freak Rudd oh oh just had a pop up Kev the Nev won! oh bugger.............

    It has been announced that in two years time there will be electricity rationing, including industry. Just what we need when we are trying to get the country back on its feet. The answer? Move to Chine where there are plenty of coal fired power stations being built.

    Why are we giving foreign aid to so many countries that are better off than we are. Countries like India which have their own space program, which we can only dream about. Answers on a stamp please.

    Scores of twitchers flocked to the Outer Hebrides to see a bird that has been recorded just eight times previously in the UK in nearly 170 years - only to see it slain by a wind turbine. The White-throated Needletail - the world's fastest flying bird - was thousands of miles off course after turning up at Tarbert on the Isle of Harris.

    It was first seen by two bird spotters from Northumberland on Monday.

    There has not been a sighting of the species in Britain since 1991 when a single bird was seen four times - in Kent, Staffordshire, Derbyshire and finally Shetland.

    Now 22 years later another White-throated Needletail turned up in the UK, but after more than 80 twitchers flocked to Harris - with scores more on their way - the bird flew into a wind turbine at Tarbert, witnessed by around 40 people.

    Josh Jones of Bird Guides said: "It was seen by birders fly straight into the turbine. It is ironic that after waiting so long for this bird to turn up in the UK, it was killed by a wind turbine and not a natural predator.
