Why a hosepipe ban?

EDITOR – If the likes of Billy Connolly were to stand up on stage and proceed to tell the whole audience that ‘Drought means West First Hosepipe Ban for more than 20 years’, you would have people crying out with tears of laughter.

But as we read, Market Rasen Mail, March 14, this is no joke and many tears will be shed, but not in laughter, because here we have in our dear old England, Scotland and Wales a total surround of the wet stuff.

And if we can travel half way round the world to build desalination plants in Kuwait, then why on earth can’t we build them here?
