    He is Farage's deputy isn't he.... hence unlikely to be in parliament

    You go on to slate rA. That is classic deflection. Another ploy regularly used by politicians. If you aren't one already then I think you should seriously think of a career change as you obviously have all the character traits necessary.
    Cheers MA...your objectivity and common sense is appreciated.

    Suspect he didn’t like being ‘called out’ for more repetitive ‘sh*t stirring’ about Keogh - in this instance - or the valuation of PP in another, hence the ‘deflection rant’. Ce la vie.

    Moving on...don’t know how aware you are of the fact that many of the low lying areas of Derbyshire are currently under water or at least unprecedentedly flood prone. As a resident of the Low Lands and a country that seemed to effectively address such problems centuries ago...do you know if the Dutch have any observations or solutions to offer?

    GP,
    Although Farage is unlikely to be in Parliament he has been very unselfish in giving Conservatives a massive boost to open up a 14 point lead in new poll after deal to pull out of 317 seats

    I'm guessing putting your finger in it is not going to get the job done. Swimming lessons maybe? It seems to me like a once in a 100 year scenario and so cannot be contingency planned: the "blame the government card" has naturally been brought to the table of course, in my view unfairly.

    I'm not sure there is a solution, since I don't think there is a recurring issue to solve. It's not like it's a global warming sea level rising problem. Whenever councils etc try to put flood defences in, the local nimbies seem to try to prevent it anyway.

    The excessive rain is maybe a function of global warming, but who knows and the naysayers will stop any action being taken anyway. If this is so, then it needs concerted global action (and I mean action, not gluing yourself to cars!) not anything localised.

    Indeed MOP, a noble act from an ignoble source. If it keeps Corbyn out of power then that alone will be worth knighting him for.

    Most of the Dutch waterways are man made. They are all linked via locks and pumping stations etc. There is also a pathway to the sea. In times of heavy rainfall the sluices are opened and water gets diverted and if the whole sytem looks like overflowing, it gets pumped out into the North Sea or into the Markermeer and the Ijsselmeer, 2 lakes that used to be the Zuiderzee until the Dutch built the Afsluitdijk to turn that part of the sea into 2 lakes. If the lakes get full they can pump water back into the Waddenzee which "borders" on the North Sea as well. Even the Rhine is now part of the water control system. It doesn't always work. 20 odd years ago the A2 motorway that runs from Amsterdam to Maastricht was flooded at den Bosch. There is a photo of a rower and a windsurfer on it. There are some areas around Doncaster where floods used to be once every 100 years or so. The same places are now suffering their 3rd flooding in 12 years or so with each one being higher than its predecessor. After the 2nd flood in a short timeframe, something should have been done. Many homeowners are now in danger of having their insurance company not paying out...... Time for government to take positive action to both the flood defences and the insurance get out clauses. The simple answer is Dutch style water management. Moving to a proper water management system isn't simple though. Nor is it cheap. The Dutch systems were built over a couple of centuries. Doncaster and the surrounding areas don't have that much time.

    Why knight him when he has already been offered a peerage? He has also told the candidates he has withdrawn that they wont be refunded any expenditure made so far.

    Looks like Farridge has managed what most men have failed to do........ master the withdrawal method

    Still quite possible that he becomes our new Ambassador to the US..........

    I’d put money on it if Johnson gets elected. Almost as much as I’d have put on GP making a ‘finger in the dyke’ joke as regards the floods.

    Been to den Bosch...nice place.

    Not like Tricky to be interested in central defenders usually right wingers are his obsession
