The recent freak weather and floods caused by heavy rains have provoked a storm of criticism about the environment agency's inept response to the problems. More public spending called the left, but the proplem is too much public spending, science and too many experts.

The power that be talk about spending $1 Trillion to save the planet from an imaginary threat (the climate has not warned significantly once the statistical frauds are eliminated) but will not spend £000s to strengthen the river banks.
