Did anybody see Chris Eakin from the BBC during the reporting of the Somerset floods? I think he was a bit p**d off at having been sent out in the rain with his wellies on. You could tell from his little cross face. He was interviewing a lady whose house had been flooded since around Christmas time and he actually asked her is she would move house!!! Dimwit. She said, "who would buy a house that's been flooded for 5 weeks?" and looked quite upset. If I was that lady, I would have grabbed Chris Eakin by the neck and plunged his head (and held it down) into the nearest very deep puddle.
On a more positive note, there are many brilliant people who are helping as much as they can in Somerset and other flooded areas. There is the lovely Ravi Singh from disaster charity, Khalsa Aid, who has worked non-stop in Somerset, travelling from Slough where he lives. (http://news.sky.com/story/1208653/disaster-charity-khalsa-aid-helps-flood-victims), farmers from all over the country are sending animal feed to the Somerset farmers and offers of help are coming from many ordinary citizens. The politicians, meanwhile, have another COBRA meeting over tea and biscuits to discuss the next meeting and then the meeting after that. Don't worry, I'm not getting into politics, mes amis, it's just not my thang.
And another thang...thing..why hasn't there been a national fund raiser for the people who have been flooded? Where are all the celebrities who are so quick to organise concerts for Africa and other places? Bono, where are you? Are you organising a concert in Africa for the Somerset floods? People in the UK are so generous when it comes to raising funds for other countries. Now that people in our county are in trouble and some of them will need extra financial help, the celebrity world seems to have gone very quiet.
I am now quietly hoping that a huge wave will come over and take Kay Burley (Sky News) with it.
Stay dry and keep yer wellies on.
