    Mr Happy says:

    If I employ someone in this country who has a foreign passport I expect the Government to have regulated their status before they get into the country: that is one of the things I pay a Government to do on my behalf.

  7. 7
    Robust Community Stakeholder Champion says:

    More and more regulation. If this minister can’t even keep up with the law, how can everyone else?

    Much better to allow migrant workers in to do the jobs lazy Britons reject in favour of a life on benefits.

    I think you will find you pay the government and the EU lots of cash to do things. Problem is they are too busy in committees and fact-finding to get round to doing it.

    Go along to the lowest level of government – your local council – and see what they actually produce.

    At least this one though has been honorable enough to resign.

    I hope he is further honorable in not accepting any ministerial pension for the period of his holding the office.

    Amateur. I raised taxes on the poor, cut them for the rich, raided private pensions, introduced tuition fees after promising not to, rigged LIBOR rates, said I was perfectly relaxed about people becoming filthy rich, and started an illegal war based on lies which killed a million and has made me very rich.

    Oh, go and do one you idiot. The British are not lazy and the adjective is not migrant, it is immigrant.

    Why should British people have to live 12 to a house on piss soaked mattresses just so some corporate business can increase their profits and offshore their head office and pay no tax.

    Pay a decent wage for a decent day’s work and you’ll find most people actually want to work.

    A long line of Labour Environment Secretaries- from Margaret Beckett and Nick
    Brown to Hilary Benn and David Miliband- all failed to dredge our rivers properly
    or manage our coasts throughout the Blair/Brown years.
    They were more concerned about wasting valuable resources on climate change.
    Something Ed Miliband was familiar with as Sec of State for Energy and Climate Change from 2008-2010.

    Professor Green says:

    We’d do rather better, I suspect, by spending money on long-term prevention rather than flood protection measures. More trees and more attention to soil quality to reduce runoff. Most important, allow floodplains to be floodplains rather than housing estates, and begin a strategic withdrawal from areas (like the Somerset levels) that will prove too expensive to protect as extreme weather events become more frequent

    John Bellingham says:

    No wonder people get pissed off with the Environment Agency.
    1/. Mr Notaro, the Brigwater builder now famed for protecting his home from floodwaters by himself was both refused original planning permission for building the house on a 1M high platform after an objection from the Agency and, last week, when he ordered truckloads of sand and soil to build his defences he checked with the Agency informing them of his intentions and was told that he had to apply for a permit that would take six to eight weeks to process and failure to do so would incur a £35,000 fine!
    He went higher up and after some delay was given permission.

    2/. The latest delay in river dredging emerged today. There has been a call for an “impact study” on the effects of dredging on the local population of Toads. February is their breeding season and “toad patrols” report that they are already on the move!

    Don’t worry girls, Fawkes & Co guarantee that global warming will not happen you have their cast iron guarantee, there that makes you all feel much better, doesn’t it? How long will it take to reach Kingston on Thames, and then Londonistan. Instead of getting on with the job then counting the cost a learn by their mistakes, they are pointing fingers at each other with Smith and fatty Pickles blaming each other. All this seems to smack of the old English disease of too many senior managers shoving paper around and the blokes who actually do the job on the ground being reduced along with funding. The Cons have been in power for over 31/2 years, they have been directing traffic so to speak and so the blame on Liebore gets less as time goes on. It always seems strange to me that government and local authorities continue to allow building on known flood plains (using maps dating back to the first series OS maps (1855)), in my area they are building houses on land where once was a processor of crude benzines and tars, true they have removed thousands of tonnes of highly contaminated soil but they could have gone even further down, the smell of creosote hung in the air for over two years, they have put an impermeable membrane to prevent the poisons rising and covered it with soil. Any takers from £99K?

    It was Deng Xiaoping who said that it was OK for socialists to get filthy rich. Mind you, he also bumped off a million or so Tibetans, helped eliminate the “oldthinkers” and was Mao’s appointee to manage the Great leap Forward that destroyed China’s Agriculture for a generation. So maybe he was Blair’s real mentor.

    You have a point there Will, can they actually read though. The last mob went legislation crazy, how much of it was actually debated, I bet a lot went through on the nod, no one, unless they were an ultra fast speed reader could read and take in all the information.

    You guys are always on about converting lezzas by giving them a real good screwing — I’m willing to give it a go with Lord Smith to see if it works the other way.

    Labour and the Unions already tried that idea. It is part of the mess we are currently trying to clear up. There is no money left, we just have to keep borrowing for the time being.

    Hilary Benn was able to secure sea defences to protect his ancestral home, although along the coast they were told to go without.

    … plus you are not allowed to get your boots wet unless you have completed in triplicate the relevant risk assessment forms.

    Do you recall that case a while back of a toddler drowning in 2 feet of water while you all stood by and watched petrified of getting your boots wet in case you got a bollocking from some bureaucrat?

    You should all be ashamed of yourselves as you are mostly a complete waste of time and money. We would be better off paying protection money to the local gangs to keep our houses safe.

    Did anyone mention how ‘honourable’ his being resigned was.

    BBC are interviewing every lefty activist they can find. Today’s excuse is the EA were only following the law when not dredging. Asking who passed those laws and when is studiously avoided.
    (Only following orders doesn’t usually work lol)

    Now Smith is on live for the second time complaining he is being picked on. Spending more time dredging his own moat on TV than doing his job lol.

    The answer to all this is to disband these useless government agencies ,they were only set up in the first place as a buffer zone to protect the Government from public scrutiny having sprung up in their hundreds since EU membership.
    Things like dredging of rivers etc were once the province of the likes of the Ministry of Public Building and Works or similar ,they were far from perfect but at least it cut out the layers of buck passing and obfuscation such as we are seeing with the ongoing flooding saga .

    Fabian alert – more global warming / climate change bullshit. Who says ‘extreme weather’ is becoming more frequent? The Somerset levels are a man made environment that has been a great success until the EA decided to stop maintaining the drainage. Unless the drainage is maintained the levels will revert to swamp. The EA is costing us 1.8 billion pa. it is wasting money hand over fist on leftish right on bollocks instead of doing the job of protecting our environment. Sack the wankers.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
