Also in the UK, it seems that a row has broken out within the government over the proposed sell-off of British Waterways, with Environment ministers claiming they will be unable to do their job properly in affected areas if the sale goes ahead. No doubt there will be comment in due course from the general public and from affected groups such as conservationists - especially those connected with canal preservation groups - and the relevant trade unions.
Speaking personally, I never feel entirely happy with this selling-off of the country`s assetts to the highest bidder, I don`t like to resort to smear tactics but I have to say I always feel there`s something unpatriotic about it. Anyway, check out the links below and form your own opinions.
