It has long been my conviction that the scarcity of fresh or drinking water is going to lead to wars being fought over water – perhaps even more than over oil, or religion. (I’m starting to doubt that, given the unfathomable depths of stupidity of religion. But I digress.)
So when a little article in the local newspaper caught my eye I decided to chip in for my little bit. A pub in Brighton – the Prince Albert in Trafalger Street – instead of charging customers for tap water or tea, asks them for a voluntary donation to Water Aid. A great idea, but since I don’t drink any of these – well not when I’m in a pub – I think it’s a nice idea to simply donate a small amount directly.
Everybody in this world should have access to clean, safe, drinking water, so every organisation that aim to achieve that deserves support, I think.
