“This flood was not only foretold – it was publicly subsidised”, the Guardian. PDF Print E-mail

Having played a small part in helping people in Lomeshaye and Carrhall avoiding and clearing up flood damage I was dismayed to read an article by George Monbiot on the Guardian web site. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/dec/29/deluge-farmers-flood-grouse-moor-drain-land?CMP=share_btn_link .
I initially wondered why this was not newsworthy with the Sun, the Telegraph and the Times.  However I rapidly came to my own conclusion.
The article further heightened my concerns about the large scale housing development on Trough Laithe which will inevitably accelerate rain water run-off into Pendle Water, at the last place we need it.
It also confirmed my existing opinion on which interests are paramount with both the current government and the European Union. For my money it certainly isn’t ordinary working people!
