Seems I got the wrong idea. I thought that the Somerset levels were having big problems but even though it is pissing down there today, instead of sorting the problem everyone is having tea with Prince Charles. The guy on the news yesterday was saying that the funds for flood victims was limited but there seems to be lots of money for a Royal visit.

£50 in diesel for the trip down from Highgrove won't break the bank or do an awful lot to shift a load of dirty water. Not building on a flood plain in the first place would have been a better start.

On a side note, on Saturday the Daily Express said the storms will last until spring. Winter weather to last until spring? Wow.

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.......

but on the other hand.it is called the somerset levels.there has always been flooding there ever since they drained the land........if you buy a house there its something you have to live with

Somerset is recovered marsh land, always been a problem with flooding Alfred the great hid there dueing the viking wars as the floods gave him protection so it's nothing new.

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.

Maybe the cost of the flooding is on another departments budget ? All they'll care about is their KPIs.

That's probably the answer still a bit of a farse through. Given that's a highly Conservative area wondering whats going to happen when the floods stop this year. If Ukip or the lib dem's make it a issue might be quite entertaining to watch them panic from the side lines.

Actually kayak sounds a bit foreign. Maybe they'll give out punts.

Oooh bitch

Fact is.. any focus lost on relief efforts, caused by dealing with Charlie boy's visit, will be repaid a hundred times because of all the positive attention he brings.

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

Speaking of which, I found this quite amusing:
