Drought Bollocks

"It's the wrong sort of rain, we need rain that only falls on reservoirs..."

We've all experienced the heavy rainfall, storms, hail, cloudbursts, and so on over the past few weeks. Chelsea versus Barcelona at Stamford Bridge you could barely see across the pitch the other night. Apparently a whole April's worth of rain has fallen in the last 72 hours. Down at the allotment it's alike the fucking Somme.

Yet what are the "authorities" claiming?

"Environment Agency head of water resources Trevor Bishop said: “It will take more than two weeks’ rain to undo effects of two years’ below-average rainfall. Soil is dry so most rain is soaked up used up by plants, evaporates or runs off, causing flash floods. Rain won’t soak down to top up groundwater, which is what we really need.”

Makes you wonder how many moons circle his fucking planet.

People with water on the brain need a large tap on the head.

Get big fat, highly lucrative job as a mouthpiece for Government vomit. Only requirement is to accept and sign an agreement for a frontal lobotomy wood drill piercing procedure to suck out all the preconceived possibility of ever uttering one word of sense ever again.

When you visit Spain on holiday there are swimming pools everywhere and very little rain.Combined with millions of tourists showering every summer etc how do they cope?
Or does it rain on the plain (a lot)?

Loads of water is wasted because the water companies never fix the leaks in their networks.

I avoid wasting water by simply avoiding bathing or washing...
