Downing Streets leaks

Downing Street is leaking four times the amount of water than it's own imposed targets say it should be. At a time when Londoners are subject to a hose-pipe ban and drought orders, Downing Street is using 30.07 cubic metres of water per person every year, the official target is 7.7 cubic meters per person. The cause of the leakages is a failure by Downing Street to fix its pipes.

In the past few weeks we've had Downing Street circumventing the hosepipe ban to water its gardens, Geoffrey Robinson getting his own private borehole to keep his estate green and now we find out this.

What's more annoying is that if I use my hosepipe I can get a fine, yet Downing Street can do this and it just passes quietly by.
