Breaking News!

Area at or below sea level and artificially drained using diesel or electric pumps has flooded due to heavy rain.

When will we learn that this area naturally floods, has flooded for thousands of years and will continue to flood regardless of how many pumps are installed.

Its incredible to think we have an education system that educates from the age of 4 up to 20s, we have environment records going back centuries and yet the builders and the architects of britain still build houses below the expected flood limits. Even a thong and sticks tribe in the rainforest know to build their huts on stilts to avoid the rainy season floods.
