So the guy who said there wasn't that much money yesterday is now going to change his mind because Charles has tottered along. He should have just sent the cheque and let them get on with the important stuff and not let the arselickers with chains around their neck get to enjoy tea and cake while there is serious work to be done. Innit

Apparently, 'kayak' means 'man's boat' innit. Make of that what you will.


Really Peter. Bit old for teens speak aren't we?

What's wrong with the way I speak, blood? I meant Inuit, of course.

Only decent question to ask other than why build there is why hasn't the environment agency cleaned the river's in 20 years? Would have still flooded but would have cost the tax payer a lot less.


I would have thought the question to ask was why have all these whinning farmers ripped out all their hedgerows over the last 50 years, allowing excess sediment to flow into their ditches (which they never clear) and allow the sediment to flow into, and then block, the river system. Or is that too obvious ...... easier to blame someone else??!!?

As you were

Wearing my king of Wessex hat (or crown), please leave the area flooded, I may need a stronghold if the Danes invade again.

I would love to see you stand face to face with a Somerset farmer and offer him these words of wisdom.

I'm sure prince charles is paying for his visit out of his own vast wealth as well as giving a generous donation to the locals.......

He'll pay for the visit.  We'll pay for the security detail, policing, council arse kissers, BBC reporting crews who tell us how very very nice a chap he is to be visiting all these poor soggy bog dwellers, etc.

I would, but it'll be difficult given that I'm 5ft tall.  They may have to club together to buy a step ladder that can reach beyond a sheep's nipple.
