New Houses That Get Flooded

In the recent heavy rain and resulting floods, I’m surprised to see how many new houses have got flooded.

My father told me never to buy a house that could be flooded and I have followed his advice and never bought a house that has ever suffered a flood.

Governments are pussy-footing around the problem, as this article shows.  There should be a law, that means if any new properties flood, then the developer is responsible for fixing the problem.  This would probably mean, houses were built, that were much  suitable for our climate. They would probably be unsaleable to many punters, who prefer Pete Seeger‘s Little Boxes.

But hey! We have some of the best and most innovative architects in this country! The trouble is we also have a lot of very conservative people and especially politicians and planners, who think inside the box!

Incidentally, Pete Seeger is still alive at 94. Hopefully, his music is still making us think!
