The right wing media were quick enough to apportion blame during previous floods. Chris Smith, anyone?

And by the way, as someone who lived in Gloucester through the 2007 flood, fuck off Pierce, and keep fucking off.

“Unpredictable” floods that have seemed quite common for the last 10-15, you’d think a government in charge over that time may have taken some action?

“Oh and don’t suggest climate change, that’s all made up.....”
My local paper shows a report that would make Peterborough effectively a coastal town by 2100 if no action is taken, according to Climate Central.

Five comments: two from climate change deniers.

On a day in which he steered a dredger in the Royal Portbury Docks, avoided a small group of protesters in Avonmouth and appeared live on the Points West sofa, Boris Johnson failed to meet any members of the public during his visit to Bristol.

His brief appearance came on the same day as he had to cancel a visit to a bakery in Glastonbury due to a number of vocal Extinction Rebellion protesters.

Johnson was at the docks – whose owners donated £25,000 during his Conservative leadership campaign – to lend his support to Mark Weston, the Conservative candidate for Bristol North West.

I'm looking forward to Gove launching the new revolutionary "Free" railways:
* Unqualified Drivers (It's a "Faith" Railway, who needs qualifications).
* Frequently running parallel to existing lines.
* Lax oversight of spending.
* Toby Young as the Twat Controller.

Boris Johnson’s disastrous performance in Yorkshire proves it – his calculated ‘average Joe’ act is dead

Everything about the prime minister is as confected and invented as any teenage pop group star. Finally, after years of pulling the wool over our eyes, the public can see it for themselves

Today’s fantasy economics: Bristol wants Brexit because there will be more cars made in the UK for their port to export

Neither does a middle aged man stuffing a pasty down followed by fish and chips make you big and clever but a fat greedy prick. Or someone who’s been snorting appetite suppressing toot for a few days.

Not to mention that most of the Beeching cuts made absolute sense and would add almost no value were they to be reversed.

It's one of those great soundbites which are utterly meaningless when you analyse them for even a moment but sound great, especially to boomers
