The EU regulatory swamp

A lesson from the Somerset Levels

From Edward Spalton:

Why we have experienced so much flooding – and it’s not because of “climate change”.

This is a very full explanation by Dr Richard North, in my opinion the best informed independent commentator on matters concerning EU regulation.

Having grown up remembering the era of austerity and food rationing, I found it very odd that officialdom appeared to favour “wetlands” above productive, well-drained land.

Flooding has been increased, not by greater rainfall caused by “climate change” but by deliberate policy decisions, mostly made by the EU and enforced by our own authorities, cheered on by rabid environmental enthusiasts.
