It always amuses me to see the Mainstream Media running a story that many in the Alt Media had already written about.

In many cases, months previously.

While SkyNews, the rest of the mass media and government ministers were scrabbling about, hastily pumping out the ‘Global Warming’ rubbish to the gullible and the brain-dead, the truth was out there, it always was, you were just looking in the wrong places.



The Flooding of the Somerset Levels was Deliberately Engineered

By Christopher Booker.

“The shocking truth is that these floods were not a natural disaster, but the result of deliberate policy”

I fear the front-page story in The Telegraph – revealing that the worst of the flood damage could have been prevented – didn’t tell the half of it.

Nor did another newspaper’s “exclusive” on the story, reported here last week, that the Met Office had forecast in November that the three months between December and February would be drier than usual.

Devastating evidence has now come to light not just that the floods covering 65 square miles of the Somerset Levels could have been prevented, but that they were deliberately engineered by Labour ministers in 2009, regardless of the property and human rights of the thousands of people whose homes and livelihoods would be affected. Furthermore, that wildly misleading Met Office forecast in November led the Environment Agency to take a step that has made the flooding infinitely more disastrous than it need have been.

The “smoking guns” begin with a policy decision announced in 2005 by Labour’s “floods minister” Elliot Morley, later to be jailed for fraudulently claiming more than £30,000 on his MP’s expenses. Under the heading “Saving wetland habitats: more money for key sites”, Morley directed that, to comply with the EU’s habitats directive and a part-EU-funded study involving the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the WWF and the Environment Agency, flooding in Somerset should be artificially promoted, because “wildlife will benefit from increased water levels”. The 13 local drainage boards, responsible for keeping the Levels properly managed, were all to be co-opted into implementing this policy.

The Environment Agency had already stopped proper dredging of the River Parrett, which provides the main channel draining floodwater on the Levels to the sea, because of the exorbitant cost of disposing of silt under EU waste regulations. And Morley had vetoed a proposal to build a new pumping station at Dunball, at the end of the massive Kings Sedgemoor Drain, which would have allowed much more effective, 24-hour pumping of flood water into the mouth of the Parrett estuary,

In 2008, an Environment Agency policy document on the “Parrett Catchment Area” admitted that it was “still not completely clear” how much the deliberate increase in flooding would breach “the property rights and Human Rights” of those whose homes and businesses would be damaged.

Yet in 2009, the government gave £8 million to “restore” – ie, increase flooding on – 10 Somerset “floodplains”, including the purchase of a large area of farmland at Southlake Moor next to Burrowbridge on the Parrett, which had been drained since the 13th century. It was to be handed over to Natural England to “store” water as habitat for birds when, as the Met Office was already predicting, climate change would bring drier winters.

“This was where November’s forecast came in, because it led the Environment Agency deliberately to flood Southlake Moor in the expectation of a dry winter. When those December and January rains poured down, this large expanse of water-sodden ground blocked the draining to the already horribly silted-up Parrett of a very much larger area of farmland to the east. This was made even worse by the lack of that Dunball pumping station, vetoed by Morley, at the sea end of the Kings Sedgemoor Drain.”

  1. The more I read about this the more I despair at this country. I feel for those poor people in Somerset, lives wrecked by a bunch of evil thieving wankers. When I read about Chris Smith donating thousands of pounds of environment agency money to gay rights groups on Mr Spivey’s site I almost fell of my chair. Don’t get me wrong i’m not against gay rights but that takes the biscuit. If the sort of info here was being reported on by the big news agencies there would be riots and loads of shit for TPTB and rightly so. Excuse me a minute………. aaaaarrrrrgggghhhh!!! That’s better!

      1. Ha ha. I feel like shouting fuck you wont do what you tell me like the fella from Rage against the machine more and more lately. I blame the AM! Still as angry and depressed as it makes me at least it’s better than ignorance. Keep up the good work mate.

  2. Common sense says that Mother nature, if left alone, has her own ways of restoring balance & so does this clip. Wisdom of the wolf (that’s a real wolf, not some lame old mongrel pearl of wisdom, Mother Earth wannabe pretender type) – accept no imitations.


  3. Sorry I can’t give a direct link,but if anyone wants to read a long discussion on this,put
    “The real reason for flooding in Somerset Levels? Not global warming – river
    management” into your search engine.The site is wattsupwiththat & it was posted on Feb 14th.

  4. RICH:- You will understand this siphoning off of money only if you first understand that the LGBT
    thing is more than just public in-your-face affirmation of sexual tendency.

    It’s a cult,a CAUSE.

    For the good of the cult/cause ANYTHING is justified.

    Take Scientology.

    On the web you can find instance after instance of dirty deeds, lawbreaking, extreme, almost fanatical harrassment of opponents,etc.

    Now look at what happens to anyone who criticises or raises
    awkward questions which upset the cult.


    And for a more serious look at where this is heading,read this:


    Henry Makow has been exposing this stuff for years, He has LOTS of this kind of thing in his archives.

    At the moment he’s speaking of Canada & the USA….

  5. @ OldGit… That Henry Makow article has left me slack jawed in disbelief. That poor woman getting sent down for trying to protect her kid then being put on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list! WTF! The world has gone mad, or the people running it have at least. Cheers for the links.

  6. Rich:- No,the world hasn’t gone mad.It’s just the kind of utterly evil & ruthless people that have always jockeyed for position & power are getting more in-your-face blatant.Problem is that far too many people refuse to understand this.Their minds simply cannot encompass what is happening
    & why.The MSM can’t/wont tell them because they’re controlled by such people.Not always directly,
    but a newspaper will always need advertisers money,so pressure can be put on advertisers not to place ads in that paper.Paper itself may need to borrow money for new plant or premises & finds the banks just somehow can’t spare them the money.
    That’s just a small sample of the control we’re under.
