The second postcard...

... was from WaterSense, which is
a partnership of WWF Scotland (funded by HSBC), the Scottish Executive, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and Scottish Water
The postcard informs me that:
Most homes contain a range of toxic chemicals, in products such as toiletries, household cleaners and pesticides. Many of these end up going down the drain and entering the water system
You know, I've just had my morning shower, and yes, the gunk did go down the drain. Who'd have thunk it?

Does anyone in these organisations not realise how patronising these messages are, at least to those of us who don't need the help offered by the first postcard? It's no wonder that there is an almost universal contempt for the state, its employees, and above all, for politicians.

Don't they have anything better to do?
