On Channel Four news discussing with locals and their Tory MP from Looe.

Even more important that Plymouth has an Airport now...with the state of the rail links to the area being rubbished by the weather and sea.

Little Newquay has one......how small minded to let the Plymouth Airport close.....James Brent there's a project for you to take up....it will help to sell bedroom space in your new hotels.....get on the case please.

Zyphers, I had exactly, exactly the same train of thought when watching the 'immediate' response by the Army, Navy EA, etc as soon as there was even a whiff of a potential flooding along the corporate corridor of the Thames. Makes me feckin spit horse shit it does. Evil or Very Mad 

What about those poor sods on the Somerset levels who have been under water for 6 weeks FFS? Oh, I know, throw them a couple of visits from some two-bit politician on a pathetic charm offensive and a dozen sandbags. Them pitch-fork bearing, straw chewing locals will be happy then!

Does feck-all outside of Londinium matter any more?

How will they get round the laws to smoke in a cafe. In the 'Dam you aren't allowed to smoke tobacco in the cafes but you can smoke some neaters! Cracks me oop it does. We will get a similar system to America over here soon only they have the drop on producing medical cannabis in many forms, I can see us having to buy licences from the yanks if we wanted to get into the business, personally I think the suits should all fook off, we are the ones that have developed the strains, the culture and market. The only argument I can see for legalisation or decriminalisation is to take it out of the hands of criminals yet if the tory suits take over its just as bad. Who would want to light up a fat one thinking that their smoke might be paying for double tap drone strikes in the oil rich lands?

true. get the polytunnel kitted out.

ive not had a spliff since i gave up the baccy last year, although i have invested in a lovely irish vapouriser. which in its own way has reduced my green consumption. i had got to the point of not caring or being paranoid about smoking the stuff in public. how rebellious. even moreso now.

in summary : grow yer own

Headlines in Daily Telegraph....

'Money no object'....to end flood misery....says David Cameron.

Okay lets wait and see.....will all flooded areas be treated equally...that is the question.

Remember....2015 is an election year....so who do you think will be more equal than others when the day of reckoning comes around.....answers on the back of a postage stamp please...and no bad language please....they don't like it in the home counties.

And That story shows why we have such bad travel disruption in this country. We have the M2 with four lanes and a hard shoulder, we have a pot hole in the central reservation why don't we shut the fast lane in both directions and put a speed limit of thirty or forty on it? We could have somebody monitoring the hole then stop everybody with traffic lights if something else happens.
The same has happened on the Gunnislake bridge after that van went through the parapet into the river. That road could at least be opened with a one way convoy system operating or even better a team of decent builders could in one week or less repair the wall on the upstream side of the bridge then fill the hole on the other with breeze blocks and get the road open. Meanwhile they are "waiting" for engineers to assess it, then we have to wait for divers to recover the listed stones that are now at the bottom of the river! Six FOOKIN months of detouring through country lanes via another bridge that floods so badly it shouldn't really be an option even.

So it's still shut! Sod it! We were told that it would take a week or two to repair. It's now about 10 days and counting. I want to go to Tavi & the thought of going the long route is a pain in the ass. I was interested to discover that Devon CC is dealing with it. Bloody useless English.

Both Somerset and Surrey/Berkshire are solid Tory heartland. Cameron would have confidently expected to win every seat in both. I wonder if that is now the case given his "money no object" comments? Nigel Farage must be rubbing his hands with glee.

The difference between Somerset and Surrey/Berkshire is population density. The Somerset levels are largely empty (in terms of human population) whereas the lower Thames region is heavily populated. In Somerset only a few thousand, at most, people have been directly affected whereas tens of thousands, at least, are affected along the Thames.

420,000 people without power now in South Wales. That's the equivalent of the whole population of Cardiff! Mental.
