Flood defence spending is branded “a postcode lottery”, prompting calls for a fairer system to prevent the poor being worst hit.

‘Money no object’ says Cameron as panic sets in yet mysteriously when it comes to helping homeless people get back on their feet the Tories don’t care. In fact the Tories even turned down an EU fund dedicated to helping homeless people replying “We don’t need any lectures from the EU on how to manage our welfare system”. We digress but you get the point.
A desperate Cameron tried to blame Labour for the flooding crisis but he wasn’t prepared for this graph produced be DEFRA showing a clear cut in funding by the Tories.

Cameron ‘to learn lessons of the floods’ (he’s a slow learner)
This was around the time Eric Pickles came up with a cunning plan to spend more money on foreign aid in some bizarre scheme to sort out the flooding crisis here. You could sit upstairs in a flooded house rest assured that if a dingy came by asking you for foreign aid to help the flooding crisis that you are in safe hands with the Tories. Don’t bank on being rescued though as that would be silly.
Voters of Newark – they vote for MPs who do nothing to help them. Newark houses were flooded in 2013 and they were left up the creek for weeks while the Tories did nothing. In return Newark voted for a Tory MP in a by-election.
Well, the above sums it up we think!
