Chris Smith Threatened With Bog-Washing

Bridgewater MP Ian Liddell Grainger is doing his best to organise of lynching of Environment Agency boss Chris Smith during his visit to flood hit areas today. Liddell Grainger has got a load of farmers with pitchforks and two by fours together:

“I’ve got all my farmers, we’re waiting for him. I want to get this ruddy man. If I just have to stick his head down the loo and flush, I will.”

11 jobs Smith rakes in a six figure sum to run an agency for which there is nothing in his past to suggest he has any knowledge or competence in. Before parliament he worked for a housing charity. His only government job was at DCMS. No wonder things are going so swimmingly…
