Boris Johnson, upon considering the comments of ecologists about the dangers to habitats of mixing natural water from different parts of the country, writes that it sounds "pretty much like tripe"
Excerpt:
They warn that it would be a mistake to mix up water from Wales with water from the Thames, since "the chemical composition of water varies in different parts of the country, and the potential effect on habitat and species would be significant". This sounds pretty much like tripe to me, and I am glad to say that Prof Falconer agrees. The chemical composition of water is H2O, and that is true across Britain.
