One last piece to leave you with,
Houses ruined and uninhabitable, roads destroyed, bridges unsafe and near to collapse, businesses ruined, schools wrecked, local government with no money, national government impotent.
Pakistan after an earthquake, war torn Iraq or Bangladesh after the monsoons?
All wrong, its Hull! Gordon Brown has offered £14m to help pay for flood damage. The local Council estimate that the school repair bill alone will top £100m. Now if this were Scotland or sunny Chelsea and not the grim North, would the offer be the same?
Of course it wouldn’t!
