EU recycling sham letter to Daily Express (part published)

I sent the following letter to the Daily Express in response to the EU threat to increase re-cycling demand quota.
I have no cause to admire the EU.
from the destruction of our fishing grounds to the funding of wine lakes and refrigerated butter mountains.
From the alienation of our Commonwealth to the introduction of VAT.
From the introduction of the enabling of judges on the farthest side of Europe to arrest British Nationals from their homes and drag them off to an alien version of Justice, to their insistence that we maintain and support foreign criminals.
From the supplying of Exocet missiles to sink our ships, to the placing of our Supercarriers (still being built) under control of their Admirals.
From their buying of our State funded Utilities to the flouting of their EU rules against State subsidies for their own Utilities.
From the myriad of petty restrictions to the imposition of faux environmental campaigns.
The latest demand for greater rates of re-cycling is unrealistic and is simply a cynical, political sop to the Green Parties, which have a significant polling inside Europe.
And they don’t love us, as witness this throwaway comment in France 24 (ref World Cup)
“l’équipe de France retrouve son meilleur ennemi (après l’Angleterre, of course) : l’Allemagne.”
 
The re-cycling of plastics is the biggest fail in this political sham.
Plastic isn’t one material.
We have low and high density polythene’s, various polystyrenes, polyurethane, rigid PVC, rubberised PVC, natural versus synthetic rubber, vulcanised rubber (tyres), multiple thermo-setting plastics, polycarbonates etc. and that’s before we get onto those intimately bonded to other materials.
As a simple example consider the high density polythene used for washing-up liquid bottles (without their low denity caps), these can be ground up and returned to the extruder, which produced them.
Put print on them and this is no longer true.
Consider supermarket meat with polystyrene trays, cellophane seals, gummed paper labels and polythene meat nappies soaked in blood.
Are these re-cyclable, except as filler materials, debasing the integrity of the final product?
You can’t even burn mixed plastics.
Polystyrenes give off Cyanide gas (The Woolworth’s deaths), whilst PVC produces Hydrochloric acid, which attacks the furnace walls.
 
Before we start attacking the consumer’s, let’s see some action against the Eurocrats paymaster’s.
(witness ED Miliband’s latest overtures to Business leaders)
Instead of re-cyclable let’s have more re-usable.
Milk and pop used to come in glass bottles, which were returnable.
Better, yet, minimise packaging and design it for re-use, or re-cycling.
Ban presentation packs for posh meat cuts and use basic vacuum seal packing, with a simple card insert, bearing the required product details.
Introduce waste disposal units into British homes, as standard, so food waste is dealt with as part of sewage re-cycling.
whatever is done, take away the right of Eurocrats to simply kick those who can’t kick back.
They printed this:
Europe is playing politics with its re-cycling diktat
