It’s World Toilet Day - #Wecantwait – I am so excited I am pissing myself!

It is another UN sponsored “world day”.  And today’s spurious bag of nonsense is “World Toilet day.”  No shit. I am serious.

I was alerted to this by a woman from the charity Water Aid which has bullied the UN into making November 19th “World Toilet day” and has published a report titled “we can’t wait.”  The woman was a guest on Radio 4’s Today programme which my Mrs insists that we listen to in the morning.

It did not take this woman long to start to explain that lack of toilets is an issue that affects women far more than men. The failure of the world to build more toilets is therefore a reflection of the patriarchal nature of society. Even my Mrs, who is a deluded lefty of the highest order, was struggling to keep a straight face at this point.

But there was no stopping the woman from Water Aid. She really could not wait…to spout even more cobblers. Apparently the economic returns from building more loos would be “exponential”. Hmmm. Perhaps she might care to supply some hard evidence to justify that claim?

Needless to say that request is mine. The BBC was so enthralled with the idea of combatting patriarchy that the loon from Water Aid was not asked to justify a single one of her preposterous claims.

Anyhow, now you know. I hope that you celebrate International Toilet day in an appropriate manner.
