Politicians solving the Somerset Level Problem

Anger at environment chief in flood-hit Somerset

Residents of the flood-hit Somerset Levels have accused Environment Agency chairman Lord Smith of "letting everyone down", as he visited the area.
Lord Smith said he had "no intention" of resigning in the face of criticism for not doing more to help but resident Jim Winkworth said he was "bloody mad" not to get an apology from the peer.
Prime Minister David Cameron, who also visited the area, promised: "Everything that can be done will be done."

Labour's answer is to import this engineer from Dutch South Africa's Kalahari Water Board.
