Anderson's Farm Fined 7.5K Over Slurry Spill


Recommended Posts

Come on Boris, we dont know what you are talking about, nothing new there then.....................

 

What price can you put on a fish? Taken from the below link on IOM News:-

 

"He said: ‘It was an accident by an employee. We have held our hands up. It was a costly mistake. We are putting things in place so this does not happen again. That will be very expensive and comes on top of this excessively high fine. The fine is disproportionate given the number of fish killed."

 

It has also happened before,

 

"Mr Anderson said the employee concerned no longer worked for the company but this had nothing to do with the river pollution incident.

He confirmed a similar accident happened some years ago involving a different employee who again was no longer working for the company."

Quite shocked by his statements to be honest.

It is a pity he was not so upfront and honest about the scandalous way Nobles Hospital is being run instead of trying for a cheap cover up this man is a liar.

 

Too true. Maybe if someone from Nobles had poo'ed into a stream and killed a few fish then some government agency somewhere would have gripped the issues and issued some fines and rolled a few heads. As it stands Mr Andersons private fish killing activities seem to be more deserving of intervention than the prospect of real people dying at the hospital.

Why doesn't he just come out and say 'Fair cop guv' take his punishment instead of bullshitting, again. Some people think the island is their own private dumping ground.

It's about £8m per year. And that's before they produce any meat or milk. If they can be bothered.

Don't think we can grow enough here to feed every head on the Island, so that idea's out the window.
