This past January was England's wettest winter month in almost 250 years. Thousands of people in the UK have been flooded out of their homes and businesses and even more rain is expected.
At a time when many throughout England are highly vulnerable to flooding, Lord Chris Smith, the chairman of the Environment Agency, has said that the government only has enough funds to save farmlands OR town but not both. This is outrageous: The UK government must protect all of its citizens and see that they are compensated.
The UK is a member of the European Union. Will you help spread the word to call on the EU to use its emergency fund to compensate all flood, landslide and coastal erosion victims?
