It's flooding, storming and hailing and so the government thought, let's cut the Environment Agency.
This piece of news from Unison suggests the beginning of a comedy sketch:
Council officer: "Flooding?
You might need the, oh no sorry, it's gone."
Member of the public: "What's gone?"
Council officer: "It's part of the Environment Agency, can't remember what it was called now, it would have been handy, probably..."
Member of the public: "Th-an-ks..."
Sorry, comedy is not my strong point, but this news is somewhat bordering on the absurd, don't you think?
I am watching the shores of this isle be buffeted beyond belief and they're cutting the agency whose job it is to handle this kind of emergency...
Words fail me.
