Flood problems


           I travelled around the main flood spots yesterday to check the position. I have also stayed in touch with the Environment Agency. They have told me no homes are currently flooded in the constituency. I do hope despite the rain the flood defences and water management systems work this time.

    It’s a pity that the past minister’s of the Environment did not start the reservoir to the west of London it would be ready for the next drought,don’t say I never told you so!!!

    Yes, i can confirm its still raining here in your constituency.

    Looking on the bright side, there should be no hose pipe ban next year.

    When are we going to see regulary cleaning of drains? Seems to be an out-dated policy of our local authorities. Perhaps there would be a lot less flooding if the cleaning was re-introduced.
