The Manx Radio interview is classic Howard Quayle in managing to make even giving out money to the needy look bad.  It's also noticeable just how slow they have been about this 'emergency' - the flood

To be fair though, what's the point in voting? However the vote, whoever wins, the government is back the next day.  There was a large turnover of mhks at the last election and people were saying

It's been said 1000 times, not least on these boards. Basic maintenance and upkeep across the board on this Island long ago went out the window in favour of Fancy Dan job justification and ego boostin

I noticed a couple of weeks ago that they (I'm assuming DOT or similar) had taken out a section of the 5ft wall next to the Wollen Mills where the two rivers join,  to do some sort of maintenance.   

Initially it looked like the river was coming through there. 

Although it also seems that the weir about 100m further down has become completely blocked by fallen trees etc and now the water is backing up over that. 

Wonder if the new bridge is holding up?  Its a big high tide at 2 which could cause even more of a backlog.

He actually cited global warming. :lol:   As if floods haven't been happening in Laxey for thousands of years as long as humans have lived there.

With Global Warming they'll happen far more frequently. Lack of preparation for these events is blindingly obvious.

Another all mighty fuck up by Government. When will it ever stop? Leaving a huge hole in a wall, you can’t make this shit up. I’d be suing for every penny. 

You'd think they would consider there 'might' be an issue with the hole in the wall and a weather forecast for a shitload of rain..... but no. 

Anyone any ideas who would be doing the work/be responsible?

Global warming and climate change have nothing to do with this flooding. There is no connection whatsoever.
