Mr. Benyon gets slapped again
Richard Benyon MP, the Minister responsible for the Environment Agency gets a pasting from George Monbiot in The Guardian today. On the face of it - one interpretation of Mr. Benyon's activities is that he's contriving to break the law in his own interest and using his position as a Minister to further his personal interest. Now then... where have we seen something like this before? - couldn't be in The Environment Agency could it?
This isn't an unalloyed endorsement of Geeorge Monbiot's position - but we can certainly see what's got him agitated. Mr. Benyon's lacklustre performance in support of The Environment Agency's toxic doings at Westminster Hall a few weeks back left us distinctly unimpressed
