So, as you may, or May not know, I come from the UK. It's OK here asides the BS people but I guess that's natural...
Now we don't have any natural Disasters, No earthquakes, no Hurricanes or typhoons, maybe the odd tornado but no where near as powerful as the states have them!
BUT the main disaster we have here is Flooding, Now last night we had what is called a Tidal Surge. Where, for reasons of science, High tide was massively bigger than it normally is! Aaand as usual flood warnings are all over the place... Well Were, I think the blokes who work at all these weather stations have lifted them.
As such I think I should explain the basics of flooding in the UK and their are 2 main reasons why:
Reason 1: Poor management of sewers and flood defenses. OK to cut a long story short: Local politics on the UK are a joke! Higher levels always take power for... reasons... I guess... and they aren't always maintained, HELL even basic drains for sewers around my town are clogged with rotten Leaves and shit... All because no one knows who's responsibility it is to clean them! Local Council, District Council Or County No one knows what they are doing! So If we get a Constitution THAT had better be listed in their! Along with an ideal constituency size and maybe something about minimum and maximum wages for MPs and Councillors... Wow Things got very political and fun verry quickly! I like it!
Reason 2: We're building on flood plains... Do I need to spell that out? I know there is the Thames Flood barrier to defend London from flooding but not every town and city can afford that.... besides it MIGHT be cheaper to let an aria flood and just claim on the insurance than spend time and money on something that just... might not work, and I refer you to Reason one
Sooo... Yeah, this Journal has no point but I wanted to say this for some time!
