Of course half a billion is not enough. We are surrounded by the stuff.
When this government plc came into power the first thing they should have done is a risk assessment. Oh noo, there was a scramble to make cuts and they did!!
Where are all these experts that told them not to worry about it? There should be another public enquiry.
As for comparing us with other countries, it is just luck more than judgement!!
We are sitting on a bed of chalk, mud, clay and limestone. The sink holes are more frequent and landslides. We have no where to run or swim for that matter.
The government should get their thinking caps on, because if we do have a summer and a hot one at that, there are going to be a lot of sick people in this country.
Locally where I live the government spending cuts stopped the spraying of the mosquito/gnat infested area's in my area.
Just a matter of time before some weird virus does the rounds.
Nope, I am sorry Stumason, Cameron is an economist, not a Prime minister and not a very good one at that!

Yeah...but we know that ain't gonna happen in a month of Sundays Stu.
We'll have to get past all the disease and stuff first, and land, even when drained, might not be fit to grow anything on. The miles and miles of roads that will need repairing just to get deliveries through, all the small private garages in small rural areas who don't have the finance to get their tanks cleaned out
....the list goes on.....and we're not out of the woods yet, there's more wet weather to come....and us Jo Bloggs public will be footing the bill.....that's the bottom line, and we're not a bottomless pit.
I dont see what everyone moaning about?
According to certain Americans on here everything fine and the weathers perfect for this time of year and there no problem with extreme weather in the world.
