What threat? Where is this so called "threat"!!
We are living in the 21st century where nearly all nations are under the control of the elite few. No one is going to be attacking the UK any time
soon, maybe besides Russia, and even then, two new boats won't make a shred of difference.
Really saddens me that people think we still need to protect ourselves from other human beings, that people think war is inherrent in human nature,
when it is not. It's an illusion.
How many people are currently living on flood plains and complaing that the governement didnt protect them? More fool you is what I say. If you
are going to live near a river then expect to get flooded especially as the planet is warming up.
Try telling that to the people who live in those areas.. like the whole of London for example!
Its not like everyone has the option of choosing somewhere completely out of harms way.. the public, the average house buyer, is not in control of
where he/she would like to live. They have to fit around various things, the main one being PRICE.
You can't blaim this on the people who live in those areas. Everyone needs somewhere to live. You can't blaim the weather, because thats out of our
control. The only person/s you can blaim are those in government, who are supposed to protect us from ALL threats, and clearly they have failed to do
"The Times has learnt that the Ministry of Defence was unwilling to supply lorries and drivers without being guaranteed payment for their services.
As a result there appear to have been delays in securing the use of high-sided vehicles that could deliver sleeping bags and flood parcels to the
"The Times has also learnt that, despite the promise of an extra £200 million to the Environment Agency to update defences over the next three
years, the Government is stalling over payment of the cash."
Im sick and tired of people saying we need more war machines to protect us from a threat that DOESNT EVEN EXIST, when there is a very real threat
coming in the form of climate change.. stop praising the government for spending money no things we don't even need, and start questioning WHY they
are so pathetically inept at getting money out in the time of crisis AT HOME.
This scenario is no different to that of the Hurricane Katrina response by the US government. Absolutely no different.
