Where better?

United Irelander is flushed with excitement at the news, but not only is Belfast the venue for the first ever World Toilet Summit.. they’ll be back next year too..[doesn’t anywhere else want this ‘Summit’? – Ed] And they’re going to discuss a proposal called – “The Belfast Protocol”.. *shakes head* the jokes just write themselves.

  1. “Apart from revealing the worst and best public toilets in the Republic of Ireland and the UK…”

    Wow I can hardly wait, my underwear is moist in anticipation.

  2. Have read the programme, and think session 2 would be highly recommendable for anyone invovled in the Northern Bank aftermath,

  3. We need a potty training seminar and perhaps some nappy-changing initiatives for politicians to complement this exciting and unmissable event.

  4. It never ceases to astound me that BCC have spent the last fifteen years systematically removing all but, what, two of the city’s public toilets, and now they’re hosting Toilet Summits and installing expensive new pop-up pissers?

    Is endemic shortsightedness something in the water supply at City Hall?

  5. This one came as a huge surprise!!! The World Toilet Summit in Belfast.
    OK so its worth a titter and a tee-hee maybe, and a re-working of all the old carry-on meets finbar saunders jokes but at the end of the day:

    Whilst 1.1 billion people do not have access to fresh water, 2.6 billion people around the world have NO ACCESS to toilets or any kind of sanitary infrastructure

    6 000 people will die today as a direct of faecal contamination of their environment (the majority of these people will be under 5)

    The centralised sewers that are in use around the world lead to a contaminiation of our water bodies and have killed thousands of square kilometres of ocean floor. At the same time, they discharge nutrients with a market value of around 15 billion USD directly into our the water where we don’t need, helping to impoverish the soil, where we actually do need it. One if these plant nutrients is phosphorous – the reserves for which are due to run out in the next 60 to 100 years, and then we have none left!!.

    Now while I like a good bog joke as much as the next person – this conference actually does have a very serious side to it.

  6. Fair enough CL.
    Its not the best title – but it is a huge issue. I mean all gotta go at some stage, and where do you go when you’ve nowhere to go?
