Paraphrased, of course:
“To pollute one river may be regarded as a misfortune; to pollute two looks like carelessness”
News this afternoon is that Grupo Mexico has alerted authorities (at least this time they didn’t try a cover-up) that another batch of toxic waste has escaped from its Buenavista copper mine in Sonora State and into water supplies. Yes indeed, this is the very same mine that messed up the local water just a few weeks ago and got the country’s politicos baying for its licence to be revoked, well remembered ma’am/sir. This time they’re blaming the tail end of the hurricane that came in over the West coast of Mexico last week. Good to have a reason, isn’t it?
Thank you, Lady Bracknell. Handbags at dawn.
