Floods: Not one party has been this honest, not even UKIP

It’s heartening to see that even though the politicians and the media are tip-toeing around this issue and dodging mention of the EU as if their lives depended on it, the reality is being shared around outside the establishment.  This below sent in by a valued reader from today’s East Anglian Daily Times.

There’s no need for public inquiries which can be corrupted at inception, we just honesty and recognition of the facts.  Until the media comes clean with the facts that are circulating all around them and the politicians recognise and acknowledge the issue at hand, we are condemned to see repeats of flooding on this scale as the EU laws we are bound by continue to obstruct the work required to manage our land and waterways in a way that preserves life and property in many communities around this country.

    Yes a superb article .We now know this EU policy for wetlands was championed by Baroness Young of Old Scone put in as CEO at the EA by Blair and Brown to endorse the policy . Young of course was perfect for the role as she always preferred wildlife to people .I understand that due to the push for wetlands the EA stopped dredging the canals and drainage channels in Somerset of course they never informed the people who live there or the electorate ,but this was typical of the stewardship of Blair and Brown under the Labour years .Lets hope one day that all these people are held accountable for their actions .I doubt it as the gravy train rolls on .

    Eloquently and concisely put.

    It covers everything; crazy policies, departmental incompetence, the uselessness of Westminster, our lack of independence, and it ties it to EU directives and the dead hand of the EU without ‘banging on about Europe’.

    How long would it take to say?

    Presumably it is far too detailed for mere voters, and therefore it’s far better not to discuss it and instead call for inquiries etc.

    Rising to David Brown’s challenge, how about “Department for the Encouragement of Flooding Rural Areas”?
