Hurricane winds have added to the flood catastrophe in Great Britain as the first death caused by the weather was reported on Wednesday.

Wind speeds reached 120 km/h in some parts of the Albion, Euronews reported. Floods around the River Thames also spread on Wednesday.

The British meteorological services declared red alerts for hazardous weather around the country, as the storm is moving northwards.

Prime Minister David Cameron cancelled his trip to the Middle East meanwhile, in order to organize the relief efforts back home. The government has received much criticism in its handling of the situation in the first days of the floods.

Cameron has pledged to assist every flooded home and business with EUR 6,000 for repair and reconstruction.

I maybe do this 3 X day (le jour) in my VILLAGE.....It brings pleasure....and relief from boredom......And relief from boredom I need, I've had brush oxes, piglets, chickens, and sheep (le sheep has warm lips)......yet nothing compares to my dearest of the dear warm and juicy lips of Борис Борисович...;-)

Go away you stupid Russian! Your "friendship" towards Bg is detrimental to us. It makes the West want to spilt us and give our lands to their stooges.
Romania won the international lawsuit against Ukraine for territorial waters delimitation with the "argument" that Snakes Island has no natural water resources therefore it's a rock, not an island, therefore it can't be used as delimitation of Ukraine-Ro sea borders. With this kind of "logic" Romania should also claim half of all world's deserts, since the deserts also don't have natural water resources. In fact it was the West who commanded the international court and punished Ukraine for being pro-Russian
The same happened when it was decided that Greece "illegally" opposed FYROM's NATO accession even though FYROM breaks the Ohrid agreement on daily basis (check out their Greater FYROM maps in their history school books, their claims that there is a "Macedonian" minority in Greece and so on).

....;-)...."Potemkin village" is the amazing "subject": it wrote "we", i.e. "Potemkin" (and it was a real person, a Prince, died in 1791) + "village" (a set of villagers ;-).....But due to the obvious absence of Prince Potyomkin in today's reality, as well due to the - also obvious and proved - fact that "Potemkin village(s)" is nothing else but a myth, it remains the only correct definition for the above "subject": "VILLAGE" or, more exact, "VILLAGER", with such equivalents as: person raised in a [very] rural area, hick, yokel, hillbilly, bumpkin, hawbuck, simple-minded, brush ape, kern, loon, redneck........and this - densely populated with such a cattle - "village", this obvious SCUM, knows the word "stooges", bravo!....... Prince Potyomkin had a habit to flog such a scum at his stables, Respect to The Prince.

“You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink”
might be thought to encapsulate the English-speaking people's mindset better than any other saying, as it appears to be the oldest English proverb that is still in regular use today. It was recorded as early as 1175 in Old English Homilies:
“Hwa is thet mei thet hors wettrien the him self nule drinken “
[who can give water to the horse that will not drink of its own accord?]

BTW watch out, God (or that universal intelligence) is watching you!

Yes George we all understand..we must all invest in Emerging Markets!!! LOL. I'm wiring my money to a Kazakh bank as we's a very safe and realiable investment destination...the only problem is that next week my money might be worth 50% of what it is now.

George, you've been mildly amusing in the past but lately you're becoming boring...and we already have 2 Russian stooges: sa-sha and we don't really need a third. Invent another role or go and bore other people in Lyulin with your nonsense.

Or maybe it's just more hot air from a silly wind-bag, Gosho? ;)

It seems somehow that God, Nature or whatever you may call that superior power and intelligence “just about had it” and is upset with the entire Anglo-World. . (not that I’m religious person or anything)
You had extreme heat in Australia 45-50 degrees Celsius, then North America is frozen, with record low temperatures, snow storms, buried and devastated from one of the coldest and longest winters ever and then the UK is drowning in floods and blown by hurricanes….
God’s vengeance I guess for bad deeds…. Maybe some people should really think about it? Perhaps is some sort of a warning….
