Another hysteria opportunity. Aren't we the lucky country.
It 'COULD' affect circulation. Er..... Maybe improve it? Move it a hundred miles (remember miles?) to the left or right or north or west? Provide a new niche for new forms of life to occupy?
But what's the betting that a 'group' will form demanding taxpayers undewrite some 'intervention' or 'education''process'. Will Chairman Maosey Kev call it the most Urgent Moral challenge imaginable and call for a 'National Effort'(with a new, previously unthought of Tax) to glue it back again?(Natural glue of course. No Chemicals)
