Martin Marprelate- A Man in the Street!

It is ironic that a few days ago I made a donation to a project to provide clean safe drinking water and toilets which flush into a proper sewerage treatment system in a Third World Country and thought as I did so how we in Britain take such matters as a given. Little did I know that as I did so that my fellow countrymen in part of the UK were in a similar situation, albeit temporarily, of having a shortage of water and thus being unable to flush toilets or wash, vectors of enteric ilnesses. We can only thank providence that this has occured during a very cold winter and not in the heat of summer when large numbers of flies would spread such diseases with the possibility of an epidemic.

At this time my sympathies go out to the good people of Ulster, having as I do friends and relatives in that province. A thought however does occur. In the centre of Ulster there is a very large body of fresh water, Lough Neagh, the largest lake in the British Isles. Surely water could be pumped from it, fit to flush toilets and wash, or if treated for drinking until the current water supply crisis is over.

Global warming and population explosion are just 2 factors in the global water problems. Nearly 800 million individuals worldwide do not have access to clean water and another 2.5 billion are without cleanliness.
