Bhopal: still suffering after a quarter century

Thursday was the 25th anniversary of the worst industrial accident the world has ever seen. And the best article I have ever read about it is here. It makes grim reading, especially when you realise that the Dow Corporation still refuses to clean up the site which continues to leach lethal chemicals into the groundwater. If you would like to help, go here. (Some of the photographs make pretty grim viewing - you have been warned.)

Meanwhile David Cameron peddles old myths about health & safety, calculated to please the tabloids. Here is Zoe Williams' succinct response. And here is Brendan Barber's. The final comment on that one is my own, and brings us neatly full circle to Bhopal.
