    An Environmental Justice Bill

    According to this article in today's Independent, Blair & Co are planning to introduce "tougher penalties" to punish those responsible for polluting the environment: Corporate polluters will have to pay for their damage

    Harriet Harman, the Solicitor General, who is backing the policy, also wants new powers for the Environment Agency to demand court orders to force polluters to clean up the rivers or land they have spoiled. The proposals could upset the business community, but Ms Harman has privately told colleagues that they will be a vote-winner with many Labour supporters who believe tougher action is needed to tackle the problems of polluted Britain.
    Of course, the Greens, and Lib Dems have been pushing these sorts of intiatives for some time now. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
