Had these warning been issued from any other country other than the UK appeals for financial help would have been shown on every TV channel at least 3 times a day. Our government would have found millions of pounds sterling to aid these disasters in countries that have done nothing to help themselves in preventing their recurring climate change disasters.
Let us hope Prime Minister Cameron and his Mate Nick Clegg, find it in their hearts to visit places in the areas where residents have suffered through these flood s from Boxted to Dedham, and all those other places that have suffered due to our weather.
