Pumping patriotism

British government ministers are taking environmental advice from a business leader whose company was fined millions for pumping sewage into British waters.

These scoundrels exist in all countries.

Invariably, these are the type of people who wave national flags in a performative manner, and accuse their political opponents of “lacking patriotism”.

I merely offer a modest observation – if you devote your life to pumping shit into your country’s waterways, you’ll forgive me if I am just a little sceptical about your claims to “love” your country.

There’s more to “loving your country” than hating foreigners.

Anyone who truly “loves their country” doesn’t wave flags, and doesn’t talk about it – they pick up litter.
