Vox Political: Is Cameron Hiding Information on the Poisoning of 7 Year Old Boy by Landfill Site

This should be a national scandal. Mike over at Vox Political, has reblogged this story from The Ecologist. Last Zane Gbangbola died in his bed from cyanide gas released from the landfill site on which his house was built on. He was seven years old. David Cameron was head of the COBRA emergency committee meeting, which may have ordered the cover up of information on the lad’s death.

See Mike’s Did Cameron order cover-up on landfill cyanide death of 7-year old? at http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2015/12/17/did-cameron-order-cover-up-on-landfill-cyanide-death-of-7-year-old/.

The article suggests that Cameron may have done so to protect John Major, who refused to enact legislation requiring that toxic substances be effectively cleaned up before contaminated sites could be developed. If that’s true, it wouldn’t be the first or the only time a British Tory government has put economic benefits before human lives.

Channel 4 a few years ago broadcast a documentary about how MacMillan’s cabinet in the 1950s refused to clean up the London smog. This was literally killing thousands every winter from asthma and other respiratory complaints. The smog was partly caused by the poor quality coal used by the vast majority of the British public. The good quality coal was being sold to America as a way of paying Britain’s war debt. MacMillan was faced with a choice – either improve the quality of coal, or try to deceive the British public. He chose the latter. The British public was then told to wear a particular type of face mask that would supposedly protect them from the smog. It didn’t, and the government knew perfectly well it didn’t. They even recorded it in the cabinet notes. But they carried on, and people died.

Now it looks like Major’s done something similar, and Cameron’s done the age-old parliamentary duty of saving his predecessor’s reputation by withholding information.
