The "Great Flood"

It makes me want to puke when I see those sanctimonious, condescending wankers on the early evening news reporting at the scene of the "Great Flood". The presenter on last nights ITV appeared to be creaming his jeans at the thought of this tragic event.
Why do they have to state the obvious?
"Here we are in Tewkesbury where it is eerily quiet".
Well of course it's bloody quiet. There's no power, drinking water and people, unless they have grown gills. And to think, these tossers are probably on fifty grand plus a year. And of course, our 'caring' PM hops on the first passing helicopter to survey the poor bastards homes floating down the Thames, Avon etc. What good is he? Making those usual promises politicians make to appease the masses. Seven years ago, Lewes in Sussex was hit by devastating floods and our government 'promised' them that they would get defences built to prevent a repeat washout. Seven years on and Lewes is still waiting.
Maybe we should give Bob Geldorf/Bono/Madonna a call. Get them to organise 'Flood Aid', 'cos the unfortunate victims of Mother Natures wrath sure as hell shouldn't hold their breath waiting for the government to cough up.
My heart goes out to all those poor people whose homes have been devastated. Thankfully, 'darn sarf' we have been spared their plight and I live on high ground also. If I get flooded, the 'Big Smoke' would have to be several feet under the oggin and the politicians would never allow that to happen.

"And now Flood Aid is proud to present from Gillingham UK, the one and only Mr K.Rip!"
"Thank you! Thank you everybody! For my first number I wanna do a song from way back. Sing it with me!
Raindrops are falling on my head...
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed..."

I heard a report yesterday from America where two press helicopters crahed into each whilst following a police chase. The other copters immediately forgot the chase and started filming the two crashed copters. Talk about dog eat dog.
