Look out, its behind you….

Does the Environment Agency and the Housing minister understand where flooding comes from?

This statement today from Housing Minister Yvette Cooper sums it up:

“What we are not saying is that there should be no house building
anywhere in the city of York, which is on a flood plain – the Romans
built it on a flood plain – or around 10 Downing Street; that's also on
a flood plain. The thing about 10 Downing Street is that it's
protected by the Thames barrier. There are very good flood defences in
place. That's what you've got to take account of.”

Has anyone told her that the flooding is coming down the Thames, not up it……

NuLab policies were scripted in front of a live audience for a parliamentary pantomime, but no politicians were harmed in the making of this farce.

YES – we are all laughing at you…….

NuLab – Destroying Britain from the inside out.

And Gordon Brown today promised that the government's ambitious house
building plans would be subject to stringent new guidelines to avoid
the risk of flooding. Does he mean this document originally published in September 2005, re-published June 2007 and released again today…but never implemented…..
