Troops sent in to flood-hit Somerset
Troops sent in to flood-hit Somerset

The Telegraph, Thursday 30th January 2014
The Government has sent the Army into Somerset as ministers launched a late attempt to relieve stricken villages left devastated by floods amid fears of a further storm on Friday. Pressure has been mounting on Owen Paterson, the Environment Secretary, in recent days as his handling of the crisis was criticised following a visit to the area during which he was heckled by angry residents.

Apparently, the army’s intervention has been successful – the flood waters are retreating.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
