Not For Looking After Infrastructure, Obviously.
Floods and storms have been with us forever. So what makes things worse now than before? People, too many people. As money flows down the drain faster than flood waters, I ask, where is the ten year plan Prezza Slob talked about? Where is the infrastructure to support juggernaut traffic on a massive scale? Or the huge increase in cars? These bridges were never designed to carry the traffic and the weight of today's vehicles. Yet for years successive governments have ignored the urgency to "mend the roof" whilst they could. The worst culprits of all have to be the present lot. 12 years of bubble blowing crap to buy votes at the expense of zero proper governance. Give me the money squandered on Iraq and Afghanistan and the dead soldiers they have cost and I would replace ageing bridges and poor roads in five years. Eight years less than since we went into Iraq.
As for The EU, where are they? Rushing to our aid with gigantic projects? Nope, they are busy elsewhere. Stupidly sickening. I'm going back to my sick bed.
I'm not sure if I have swine or man flu!
