Wrong Type of Power Comes To Kent

The ministerial Land Rover was splattered with mud for some good telly pictures of the PM working hard for the flood victims of Kent this afternoon. It seems the ghost of the 2007, when Dave went to Rwanda instead of his own waterlogged constituency, still haunts the Cameroons.

The people of Yalding were not exactly enamoured to see him. Just what you would want after losing power on Christmas Eve and having your home destroyed. No wonder he got heckled.

          • To correct the arsehole sockpuppet at 11:54 pm above, yesterday was a beautiful cloudless and sunny day and I had selected it over a week ago to make my journey over the Alps.

            It is possible to go in almost any weather but it is much more enjoyable to chose the better circumstances and, outside of Salzburg, there was little traffic on the road, which made for a pleasant and efficient journey lasting some six hours on the road but extending into some shopping time in Italy.

            My intention had been to leave an hour or so earlier so I arrived in the daylight as I had switched off the water before I left in case of a freeze which can happen occasionally here. To switch it on, I have to climb down into an underground chamber and that is easier to do in the daylight. But he I can take a torch. I would have liked to see the sea too but that will be possible in under two hours.

            Unpacking took a while and, still being tired after my exertions in Cannes last week, I decided not to switch on my computer but go to bed instead. The result is that I have awoken slightly early after a wonderful night’s sleep. It occurs to me how different my life is to my sockpuppet because I have a large amount of work to do here and have decided to get into it asap, rather than waiting for January. My shadow probably does not understand what a day’s work is…

      I’m a loser, I’m a loser
      and I’m not what I appear to be

      the last GE was won but with a cost
      the next election is one that I’ve already lost
      and although I’m worth forty million my friend
      the people hate me and so I’ll lose in the end

      I’m a loser, and employ my friends too frequently
      I’m a loser and I’m not what I appear to be

      Although I laugh and act like an average joe
      Behind my mask I believe you are all just my hoes
      And when your tears fall like rain from the sky
      It makes me laugh as I get really high

      I’m a loser, bound to lose in the end
      I’m a loser who gives jobs to my friends

      What have I done to deserve such a fate
      I realise I have left it too late
      and so it’s true pride comers before a fall
      the next election will not be a close call

      I’m a loser etc

      Stop encouraging development above flood plain, Prime Minister says:

      Cameron’s allowing his developer chums to have a profits feeding frenzy and they’re concreting over our crucial rainwater soakaways.

      Consequently too much rainwater runoff drains into rivers like the Medway, raising the level of the water table and rivers – up stream of too many places like Yalding.

      That’s the cause of far too much of our flooding: political ineptness and greed.

      • 137
        FFS says:

        What bollox. Floodplains exist precisely because rivers sometimes flood in heavy rain.

        Many towns are built near rivers because they have always provided water, sewage disposal, transport and indeed in the old days places like Guildford gave money making opportunities as there were tolls for crossing the rivers.

        Flood plains also gave flat productive land so there were many farms and naturally market towns have grew up to service the needs of those farmers on those floodplains.

        Due to the vast expanses of flat land and the excellent transport connections these traditional floodplain towns have grown steadily over the centuries. Cambridge, Oxford, Gloucester, Tewkesbury are all good examples of traditional towns that lie on floodplains and are subject to flooding in heavy rains. Modern housing tends not to suffer so badly because the new housing estates are pushed out further from the rivers.

        Even in my time there has actually been less flooding because many of the rivers have been straightened out to encourage faster flow to the sea.

        Only a Labour activist retard could try and claim that floodplains are the result of Tory policy.

          FFS: You are in never never land. Rivers were never for sewage disposal. Rivers were for water. Sewage never existed. The privy was a dry structure and dug out for the land. No one would ever put sewage in a river. Urine yes. Ever wondered why humans get urges when they hear running water? Why cattle make cow pats yet walk into a river to drink and urinate at the same time. Our modern ways are abhorrent to those that understand nature.

          We have a free country. The issue is how much freedom. When land owners and developers decide to build houses the “system” should make sure it is done properly. Yet for 50 years it has not achieved this, in the race to fill this country with houses and roads.

          The country is just not looking at its infrastructure and is becoming a sprawling “shanty town”. Having a government, we assume they will allow freedom without others suffering. Sadly they only are interested in their own pockets.

          As each housing estate is built and the roads become congested so new bridges are built. Each bridge is built to ensure only a small alteration to the flow of the river. But over 100 years each small change is cumulative. No one adds up all the small increments and stops further building. That would not be freedom. Why should the final developer have to pay for something everyone else got for free.

          Also days gone by the local builders and road construction would use the river silt and stones. In fact it is still in our laws that even private road owners can dig from river beds. The recent (50 years) stopping of this local extraction has left the rivers clogged. Why would we stop sustainable local extraction from rivers?

          As for flood planes they are distinct levels in the river banks caused by the frequency and severity of the historic river flow rates. However they had no walls. They were an area that water flows through and not an area to fill. A flood plain is not horizontal, but slopes down with the direction of the river. Imagine a breach at the top of a section of walled flood plain. What the authorities call flood plains today are not what rivers need.

          Also look at your example towns. A river crossing is not made where the river is crossable, but instead where the river is constrained horizontally. The town is built on the hill/rock that is constraining it. The bridge is then built between the higher ground either side. Look at the old bridges, they used to have arches either side that were well above river levels. These were not built for dog walkers. These were put there by real engineers that knew how rivers worked. Now in the towns you mention these features have been removed and in some cases the stepped river banks have been replaced by roads built high enough not to flood.

          For every record flood event in the recent years I can show you the bridges, roads and walls that have caused it. Do not play with nature, she will always win.

          • FFS says:

            Floodplains tend not to slope significantly. Take the river Thames. It is 346,000m long but its highest point is only 110m high. Most of its length has hardly any height on it at all. That is fundamentally what causes a floodplain – low elevations across the length of the river. The river tends to meander across the flat land making the flow of water even slower. Thousands of years of flooding deposits river silt across the plain creating the characteristic flat landscape.

            Cambridge is built on land no more than 10m above sea level, the Severn also has a suprisingly low drop.

            These rivers have always flooded and always will.

            You only need to look at aerial photographs to see what has actually happened. The floodplain has itself become saturated with water and this water cannot quickly make its way to the sea across the flat land. So it simply forms a huge puddle. Bridges and driveways make precious little difference – they are all inundated by the huge puddle that simply cannot make its way quickly to the sea even after it has burst its banks and poured around the bridges and other obstacles.

            There is nothing that can be done about this. Much of Southern England is only a few tens of meters above sea level. A plumber would insist on a fall of 1 in 50 for good drainage. Our rivers only manage 1 in 3000!

            Maud Heath’s Causeway is a wonderful pragmatic solution to regular flooding in Wiltshire going back 500 years. Maud obviously got very fed up of traipsing through the wet mud on her way to market, and made sure her fellow citizens wouldn’t have to suffer the same fate.

          doing stuff upstream, like straightening watercourses and concreting over vast bits of land, makes flooding worse lower down.

          we need to make developers build ponds to hold their runoff for release into the rivers in small amounts later. And make it so all new drives are built with porous material to reduce runoff.

        Just sayin' says:

        On a serious point, I moved to a small Oxfordshire village six years ago. In the first winter some houses were flooded, not badly but the water got past front doors, although not mine. There was an outcry, but rather than blame everyone else, on examination it was found that the principal reason was that in previous years lack of maintenance of drains and ditches had created blockages. Obviously when it rained there was overflow. The village is low-lying and parts are subject to risk. Many centuries ago ditches were dug to provide drainage. All concerned and responsible got together and acted; these blockages have since been cleared by frontagers, farmers and the Councils. We’ve had no more floods even though we’ve had just as much heavy rain. Many could learn from this as politics and special interests were put aside. It is an object lesson in recognising reality and the acceptance of responsibility.

      Historical note. The triangle bounded by Sheppey, Ashford and Tonbridge was the heart of the Kent fruit and Hop area. The mainstay of the migrant pickers were the people that Charles Dickens referred to as “Pikey-Men”. In the 1960s these people were “settled” in the area and large clumps of their children and grandchildren live in certain, otherwise desirable areas. Apart from that awful accent and unfamiliarity with the English Language, they can be identified by other key characteristics.

      Um, I think it might be more likely that the rain water and fallen trees has caused dead shorts in a lot of the cabling.

        Feck all. Something to do with the fact that improving the flood defences of this Georgian village would cost £20,000 per house or some such excuse.

        Now Yalding has an average house price of £440,000 according to RightMove and it seems to me that improving flood defences would be of great benefit to said (already rather high) house prices.

        So why the hell are the rest of us expected to pay for their flood defences?

        What they need is a mechanism for improving the flood defences but where the cost is born locally over a long period of time. In other words the council should have done it as a PFI project and put the cost onto local council tax. The people would have got dry houses and lower house insurance in return.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
