I can but hope Spiders!

This news absolutely sickens me, I've been delighted at the gradual improvement of the Trent over the last few years and the clarity has been unbelievable this season - much to the dismay of some anglers but to my great pleasure . However there is still much to be done and many pollutants and fertilisers still plague the river. An incident like this is just wrong on so many levels, and doesn't so much reverse many years work by many people as s**t all over it. The company responsible make a lot of fuss about being good to the environment on their website and their mission statement makes the claim that:

'We will become the UK's most valued company to customers, colleagues, investors, business partners, environment and the communities where we work and live.'

So what value do they have? maybe their buildings will make good firewood, perhaps the people responsible will make excellent rubby dubby and barbel baits if appropriately slaughtered and ground down, maybe it would give me and thousands of other anglers great enjoyment to see them hung drawn and quartered. Perhaps these are harsh words, but then perhaps ruining an entire ecological system is a little harsh too.

If anyone would like to give these people a few encouraging words on how to run their business in future their website is: http://www.redindustries.co.uk/index.html

Under the contact section of their website, I have sent a message to their CEO.

Briefly it tells of my own disgust at their actions and hope that the CEO and board is prosecuted and sentenced to long terms of imprisonment and that the name of their company will in future be regarded as a pariah amongst British Industry!

This incident must lead to massive legal action against the company concerned and custodial sentancing MUST take place else the company will liquidate,no fine will be paid and no punishment taken,anything less would be a total travesty.

Some of these haz. waste disposal companies are a menace. A great many are basically scrap merchants who've seen £ signs in their eyes. I'm not making any allegation about Red Industries, but I've read about these people containerising their waste and sending it abroad, putting it on ships which they then scuttle, and finding any means of not actually dealing with the waste legally.
Let's see who goes to jail for this.

I have just e-mailed the B******S to say what i think of their company and its inadequate contamination controls but we should all get ourselves up there and show them we mean business cos If you mess with our fish then your messing with us fishermen!

Dumping a ton of dead poisoned fish on their own door step would be good for starters!

YOU SHALL RESPECT OUR RIVER!!!!!!

Funny you should say that CAT, I was chatting with a friend about posting them some frozen deadbaits (with the packaging removed of course so they look like wild fish). Tomorrow when my local tackle shop opens I will be buying not pike bait but ammunition from their freezer. I would use fish from the Trent itself but I am too far downstream of the pollution for it to have reached me and killed anything (thank God!). However I feel extremely strongly about this, how its made the staffordshire lot feel I can only imagine!

Is there anything we can all do together (legally of course) to really bring these ***** to their knees? suggestions anyone?

Fin as i posted earlier in this thread,unless those responsable are imprisoned the company will go to the wall(under the weight of the fine)and not a sole will be punished,lets be honest i havnt heard a lot from the houses of parliement either.One thing i must say is that if i went out and poured cyanide over a dog in the street i would be arrested and locked up(and rightly so),but when a shower of s**t kill many thousands(millions probably)of fish and i take it mammals,birds and millions of insects and invertabrates people are still walking,this country is bloody disgusting and perhaps it would be better left to the eastern europeans to finish it off.:mad:

I spoke to my post lady yesterday.
Guess what?


The talk among her fellow workers was," if only I had voted in the ballot, we may have a job in the future"!

Mark Lloyd and Anglers Trust get's a quote though.
