….and very importantly, where to dredge!
Well dredging is expensive and it is not the total solution. Many experts have differing opinions on this process so we decided to take a look into it.
We conducted a simple experiment and it does seem to suggest that it is extremely efficient. We took two buckets. Let’s call them Bucket A and Bucket X for clarity. We filled each bucket to the very brim!
We then poured each bucket, in turn, into a measuring jug. We were surprised to see just how much more water was in Bucket A! Conclusion: A dredged river holds more water.
It would seem to be a No-Brainer but Cameron and his Coalition decided not to spend the money on dredging.
Although that isn’t quite true! Oddly enough, one river has had a lot of dredging. In fact it has been dredged TWICE since 2007. It happens to be The River Windrush which, by some odd coincidence, just happens to be in Off-Shore Cameron’s Oxfordshire seat. Now there’s a funny thing!
Off-Shore was very proud of what had been done and he even told his local paper the Oxford Mail: “(One of the) reasons why Witney has not flooded nearly as bad as last time is that this time dredging was being done under the bridge.”
Just remember: “Money Is No Object” especially if it is used to protect people who vote for me. LINK
