Every time there is a drought anywhere the news channels prop up a reporter at a convenient almost dry reservoir. In the backgrounds are huge areas of sand and silt.

Why don’t the water companies get a JCB and a couple of lorries and dig all of it out to increase storage capacity?

Simples? I don’t know – is there a reason why they don’t?

    Hardly an argument – just an observation.

    At this moment in time I see that I have 6 thumbs up and you have one thumb down.

  • The measure of Britain – who cares about Gibraltar?
    I have to say that I do not understand why Spain wants Gib back apart from sentimentality, ie it used to be part of Spain. It is too small to have any real economic value to Spain. The fact that the Spanish have no inclination to return their 2 African enclaves to their surrounding countries seems illogical to say the least.

    There are no easy answers to problems like these. I would tend to support the view that the will of a majority of the residents should be accepted and supported the Falklands war on that basis.

    Then there is A Salmon’s ( and others ) attitudes to independence in Scotland which is solely based on sentimentality as it makes no economical sense either.

    Is fragmentation of nations/states the best way ahead for the world? Or should we be accepting that the future of the planet lies in alliances and pragmatism rather then historical incidents of history?

    Is the future an enigma wrapped up in a conundrum ?

    You write like an idiot!

    AS. as you produce more stupidity on here than anyone else, I implore you to take your own advice.
  • The measure of Britain – who cares about Gibraltar?
    Why does Spain want Gibraltar back when it will not give up its 2 enclaves in north Africa?

    Hypocrisy ?
