Ban Roger for making it a contest as there are no winners in a competition like that.

Ban Ed as from my experience it has always been a post code lottery for flooding and other disaster assistance and besides you should have banned Roger!!

Ban Ed as I was reading this morning parts of Ironbridge are expecting up to 1.8m of flood water!!! I would say the flooding has been a disaster for quite a while now, those poor people are losing everything.

Ban Ryan as whilst we were there. I am sure the blue flood barrier moved closer to the houses.

Ban Ed as I have only seen pics but the barriers really don't look like they were made to hold back that volume of water.

Ban Ryan as do to the area of historical value they can only put up barriers like those, they are susceptible to movement due to the weight of the water and the unevenness of the ground.

Ban Ed as how many years of flooding like this until all that historical value washes away? Especially when insurance companies are either refusing to insure or jacking premiums up to unaffordable levels. We really need to get to grips with proper upland management and water catchment systems.

Ban Ryan as the road that the barriers are on is lifting up. So when the flood recedes the road will need repairing

Ban Roger as yes. But some of our house builders are greedy and the relevant planning department stupid.
I dare say after all these floods anyone with any brains won't entertain buying a house built on a flood plane. The name Flood plane sort of gives the game away.

Ban Ed as there is some resistance at times, but people are slowly coming around since insurance companies are now cancelling flood insurance for anyone who has had a previous claim.

Ban Roger as thats been happening here for a while. They want your money. But hate to give it back when you need. You can pay for insurance on let's say a car. You don't make a claim for 20 years then when you do they do their best to get out of paying.

Ban Ed as I've been very lucky in regards to payouts. Once my workshop was broken into and the insurance simply cut me a cheque to replace whatever I claimed was missing. Twice my ex totalled her vehicle and the insurance paid out more than they were worth as well as dropping my premiums on the replacements. Then the last time I was T-boned the adjuster came to my house, looked over the truck and started writing down optional extras which were never installed when it was new. He told me to keep my mouth shut as the VIN indicated all those options, so they must have been there when I was hit. ;)
