The MP Who “Tried it on” with Myleene Klass

20140210-092009.jpg Readers will remember single Myleene Klass causing hearts to flutter when she tweeted a picture of an MP’s business card with her finger covering the name, claiming she’d been chatted up on a plane. In yesterday’s Sun Guido named the gent in question – Tory backbencher Mark Pritchard. Mark met Myleene at customs after they had both been to Sierra Leone, where Pritchard’s The Music Charity distributes second-hand instruments to orphanages and schools. “I think she was chatting ME up,” chimed Pritchard when Guido asked. “I think we could make great music together.”

      There’s a delicious irony that the eco-loonies in the Environment Agency decided not to dredge “because dredging harms all the little fluffy animals on the river banks”, and the little fluffy animals on the river banks have now drowned in a sea of toxic floodwater.

      Just exactly how did these flat areas become flat farming areas?

      Because historically they flooded.

      Why are all the old villages built on the slightly raised land?

      Because the fields flooded.

      What is wrong is that the environment agency assumed they have “corrected” nature and provided flood defences. Yet the defences were only designed for a certain maximum level of rain.

      Without the flood defences it would flood more often, but would be a smaller area. It would also clear quicker. The animals would be taken to the land around the villages.

      Yet now all that raised land is developed and the new houses are obviously being built in the flood planes.

      The fault is the advice of the environment agency that thinks they can control flooding with a few dams and a small canal.

      It is nothing to do with weather. It is purely arrogance and those that believe they can predict limits to weather. This country has run out of sustainable development land. Any new development requires unrealistic costs to avoid the stupidity that we are seeing today. In some areas we are putting in housing estates on drain systems built in Victorian times. Does anyone really think the Victorian engineers built the channels and culverts massively oversized?

        In the case of the Sommerset levels it’s just a simple case of the drainage system being allowed to silt up over the last 15 years. This is because of complicated politics involving the EU, Environmentalists and a Quango out of control.
