We've been betrayed
I READ L Hayden's letter (September 6) and agreed with every word of it.
Thanks to the appalling behaviour of local councillors who were voted into office by the apathy and disinterest of the general public, most of whom can never be bothered to turn out to vote in local elections, the city of Plymouth has now been right royally betrayed. A very few people are going to make a very great deal of money out of siting a huge incinerator, not only amidst 27,000 vulnerable human beings, but alongside a nuclear installation.
If you read about this in a novel you would think it too far-fetched, even for fiction "Oh that could never happen, it would not be allowed".
And there I think is the answer.

Of course the city cannot now afford to break the incinerator contract, but an illegal contract can never be enforced, and imposing toxicity and serious nuclear risk on a city which claims to exist within a democracy cannot be legal.
The people of Plymouth who are being endangered by this incinerator were never allowed any part of the decision to put it in the dockyard.
As we are not only citizens of Britain, but also of Europe, surely we can start appealing to various courts and forms of justice?
If nothing else it would delay this terrible blight on our city whilst appeals were being heard.
Is there really no-one in this city, with legal training, to spearhead a campaign to attack the legality of this monstrous imposition?
