“Fragmented, inefficient and ineffective “

Rawreth Lane gutter not coping , Sunday 28th

From the BBC website yesterday:

Simple actions to help protect homes in England from flooding are still being ignored by government, MPs say.

The Commons environment committee said ministers were not addressing what it called the fragmented, inefficient and ineffective flood management.

Areas of concern include flood impact home insurance, building rules and local authority planning decisions.

The government rejected the criticism, saying it had accepted many previous suggestions on flooding from the MPs.

The committee’s comments are the latest in a running tussle between MPs and the environment department Defra.

The MPs admit that flooding has risen up the government’s priority list, and say “considerable work” on flooding is being done across Whitehall. But they complain that ministers are still ignoring reasonable demands…..

  • The BBC has become nothing more than a leftie organisation run by communists. You only have to watch any news coverage, particularly of President Trump, to realise this.

  • Well perhaps not communists but certainly by people called Tristan and Rupert who, of course, cycle to work ( from their home in trendy places like Shoreditch etc ) wearing brown cords, sandels and mauve socks.
