Well you know it is all down to the Sell off/Privatisation (into Tory Bank Account's) of the old water board, back then we had regulations for
drainage ditches which were made more lax to accommodate bigger farm fields reducing the efficiency of water drainage in time's of heavy
precipitation, more pumping stations including for removing excess ground water from these drainage ditches and today only a handful of these
facility's remain, the new ones are not built to handle the volume the old one's were AND the private water company's have sold off areas for
Also the Tory's if I cast your mind back to Cameron argued for reduced human interference and letting nature take back much of the low lying land, oh
and add to that plans for thousands of new home's on flood plain's.
It's one part bad government (the biggest part) and one part malfeasance (a very sizable part - vested interests and all that you know old chap, clap
on the back and a funny handshake to boot as in the old school tie fraternity getting there rock's off making there hedge fund managers very
Tory's need I say any more (oh! and that New Labour lot did not help one iota either since they were just Tory's - sorry Wolves in sheep's clothing
pretending to be Labour but having nothing in common with the traditions of the party they had hijacked).
Don't you remember the warning's that the Labour - OLD Labour - Party gave when the Tory's were selling off the water, something about people being
charged for what was already there's and since the private enterprise were being given an industry where there is no competition they would literally
strip mine it for profit and charge as much as they could, remove unprofitable assets - I mean a government has to plan ahead but a company is only
concerned about there quarterly profit margin so running unprofitable pumping stations was never going to be in the interests of there share holders
now was it.
They have a whole generation whom are too thick and simple minded to remember, they are banging on about future water shortages - well there are
going to be water shortages because they have closed off those unprofitable water facility's and sold off the water SERVICE to private contractors
whom know they need a DEMAND to make a PROFIT so obviously private enterprise running our national assets was paramount to TREASON but the since it
was the Tory's that did it they get away with it like always.
And as for the flooding, Tory's (helped by New Labour whom were NEVER really Labour at all and betrayed pretty much everything the party stood for),
well that is going to happen when you have heavy rain, no drainage ditches were there used to be many and private company's managing your water
infrastructure its not only predictable it's as sure as egg's.
Also the biggest threat to our National Security is not Labour or even the Green's it's the Bloody Tory's (but if you know how a magician work's then
imagine him playing trick's to five year old's well that's about how clued up the British public really are to there politician's, they are the five
year old's and the likes of the Tory's are the magician bamboozling and lying to them - fool me once shame on me, fool me twice - well how many time's
have the Tory's fooled the British public, I have bloody well lost count.
Never mind the water look at all the pot holes on our road's, our road's used to be fit for purpose but as soon as someone started putting the idea
of PRIVATISING our road system up on the Tory Benches and the government found excuses begin the privatization of those assets, firstly by making
councils responsible for roads that had formerly been maintained by the department for transport, oh I could go on and on and on.
Hey one of the woman hit by those flood's in Yorkshire that Boris Johnson at first said were NOT a National Emergency before having to back track
(Because you know you have to throw a few Denarius to the Poor before an election and then you can take them back off them) after speaking to him for
about ten minutes walked off angry and called him something rather appropriate but not very pleasant.
They need help not some two faced heartless Tory Public SchoolBoy Eton educated Bullingdon Club (the Bullingdon club grew out of the old Hellfire
Club that was rumoured to have held satanic ceremony's and of course orgies in the 17 and 18 hundreds and the Bullingdon club members have a terrible
reputation for the way they treat other people and trash places they decide to go out for a drink at - but since they are rich and powerful and from
rich and powerful family's it then get's swept under the rug) member (burn £50 notes under tramps noses as part of there initiation same as Cameron
his fellow member) crying crocodile tears for them when in fact he does not give two hoot's for there well being and is only concerned about getting
back into power so is just doing the round's to make out he is a caring Leader, when in fact he is NOT.
And a Tory perspective, rose tinted glasses, well he is from the part of those making money out of the rest of us after all.
Don't laugh he is serious, claiming the privatization of the water board as a success, which planet is he on anyway, oh that's right Planet Tory
Elite Rich Bag's.
