Just watching my favouritest politician Sadiq Khan bigging up the impending firework display in London.
He has spent most of 2017 crying about air quality in London (and even suggested the rest of the UK ban log fires) . I find it a bit rich he’s now
promoting a display of 10,000 + fireworks that release all sorts of toxic metal particulates and carcinogens into the atmosphere. Couple of links
It’s a lot of pollution in a short space of time and no real studies on the toxic effect.
Obviously the Houses of Parliament are synonymous with fireworks - but should they be reserved for just that occasion. They’re used for everything
these days - is it time to curtail there use? Go for a more environmentally friendly approach?
