The South East has a water shortage; it is particularly bad in Kent. This happens to be the very part of the country that John Prescott wants to build over.
The environmental impact of millions of new water consumers in the north west of Kent would be massive both in Kent and in London. This will add to the increased levels of transport into London, where the jobs are and the huge increase in levels of waste that will need management.
Please Mr Prescott stop and think for a minute.
