Westminster may have just ceded Shrewsbury, Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester to Wales.

A petition to Parliament on pollution in the catchments of the rivers Severn and Wye has been rejected on the grounds that they are ‘Wales’ responsibility’.

Both rivers rise in Wales, but Severn runs through Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, while Wye forms part of the border between the two countries.

The now reopened petition by Mark Cheetham called on the British Government to control pollution from agriculture in Wye and Severn River Catchments.

Environmental activist and author George Monbiot accepted the rejection, calling it “amazing”.

“A petition for pollution of the Wye and Severn catchments has been rejected by Westminster on the grounds that they are the sole responsibility of the Welsh Government,” he said.

“Can anyone lend a card to British Parliament officials?

“Although I fully support the territorial claims of Greater Wales, unlike our parliamentary officials, I cannot deny the current location of the border.”

‘Session’

The River Severn catchment runs as far as Coventry and Rugby, extending the Welsh border to the east by up to 75 miles.

The Westminster petition committee’s error caused much rejoicing on social media, with one user declaring “Congratulations to those living in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire who are now under the jurisdiction of the Welsh Government.”

“This is an opportunity. It is obvious that they have relinquished all control of land, water and resources, and Senedd must act immediately to ensure their exclusive sovereignty, ”said Paul Egell-Johnson.

“Westminster is admitting much of England to Wales and increasing the Welsh taxpayer population by 69%,” said Rory Bhandari.

“With the impending secession of Scotland, it seems that the Normans and Anglo-Saxons are retreating to Roman lines.”
