Boris says "This being the case, he asks why it is not time to "use the principle of gravity to bring surplus rain from the mountains to irrigate and refresh the breadbasket of the country in the South and East".

    Bewl Reservoir is very low.

    But is it half full or half empty?

    We've already got the Brummies stealing our good, clean Welsh water without the cockneys nicking it too. Maybe if wales becomes independent it can sell water to England for extortionate sums like the Russians do with gas :)

    Now we know why Alex wants independence (and thinks he can afford it) and why David doesn't :wink:
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.
  • hope it turns into a desert down there, they are always wanting the good weather so tough, im in the south west of scotland and its pissing down. our lochs are full, so plenty of water to sell after independence, who needs oil when we have water. It has been said there will be wars over water shortages in africa and asia, so lets build hadrians wall again lol
    What goes up must come down wheeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

    You miss the point, the road race event in derbyshire, cumbria, northumberland or yorkshire. The MTB event in the scotland (instead of the cyclo cross course it's on), The canoeing in wales etc, etc

    Boris says "This being the case, he asks why it is not time to "use the principle of gravity to bring surplus rain from the mountains to irrigate and refresh the breadbasket of the country in the South and East".

    Well, if Boris is prepared to pay for it, why not? If people in London are prepared to pay billions to ensure that once every 15 years or so they don't have a minor water shortage, they should be allowed to make that choice. Alternatively, people could just waste less water........
    Faster than a tent.......
  • When my dad couldnt find water - he didnt moan or riot....no...I reckon they could find water if they got on their bikes and looked for it. It's no good expecting something for nothing - spongers.
    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    Minor water shortage? It's a DROUGHT you know, like they get in the Sudan and Ethiopia - people in London will be walking dozens of miles to the nearest well and children will be dying of thirst! It's not some trivial matter that a bloke in Romford won't be able to jet wash his XR3i or fill his hot tub you know :wink:

  • I've just made some water. Is there a PO Box down South to post it to?

    Scotland get to host a bit of football.
    Hampden Park will host eight Olympic football matches.

    The men's and women's games will be played between 25 July and 3 August.

    I guess some other hick towns out in the provinces get thrown a bone as well.

    FCN 4: Planet X Schmaffenschmack 2- workhorse
