Rat infestation threatens UK
Britain now has more rats than people, with the trend set to continue unless households cut down on food waste, it has been claimed.
Experts claim councils which have stopped weekly bin collections are to blame, along with mild winters and last year's floods.
Rentokil estimates there are 65 to 80 million rats in Britain compared to around 60m humans.
National Pest Technicians Association director Peter Crowden told The Daily Mirror: "In 30 years I've never known such a big rat population – and there will be an epidemic if people don't reduce food waste.
"Fortnightly bin collections now mean it's vital we recycle. Just putting extra food scraps on compost heaps means fantastic breeding grounds for rats to spread disease."
Will those Limeys never learn? Infrequent and inefficient clean-up of waste combined with increasing rat populations......didn't that allow the Black Plague to kill 30-50% of England's population in the 14th Century? Why, yes it did.
Perhaps if the UK would pick up garbage more often than every two weeks and develop an edible national diet, there would be less scraps for the rats. Here's a sampling of the typical English diet...
-rhubarb crumble, trifle and spotted dick(I don't even want to know what this is)
-The advent of take-away foods during the industrial revolution, led to foods such as fish and chips, mushy peas, and steak and kidney pie with mashed potato (pie and mash)
-A unique sandwich filling is Marmite, a dark brown savoury spread made from yeast extract, with a tar-like texture and a strong, salty taste.
Seriously, if this is what you were expected to eat, wouldn't you throw most of it away?
This is just one more example to a long list of ways, that the once great UK is collapsing under the weight of political correctness, dhimmitude, and enviro-nuttery.
