Floods in Britain

Slightly off topic, 

This morning, I woke up to a steady "Drip."
It got more insistent as I tried to ignore it and I became convinced it was in the room, but in the dark could not pinpoint it.

This morning when I finally dragged my sorry behind from my pit, I went to grab clothes discarded at the bottom of the bed to discover they were p*!$£d wet through. 
Automatically preparing to blame the dog or the boyfriend, I felt a drip on my head....
Rain falling from the light fitting in my ceiling and, looking up, the ceiling appeared somewhat bowed. The estate agent says Tuesday earliest. He better hope the ceiling doesn't collapse I guess.

Yet as Britain faces some of the worst flooding it has ever suffered, I can only say..... Nature takes care of it's own. Finds ways to wash away the scum, burn off the excess, trim the fat.
The more this Country encroaches into open land, the less Nature there is to hold back the onslaught of the seasons....
Let's face it, this Country has enough grime that needs swilling away.

Peter Steen. Justice Fails

Having been on trial for 11 counts of violent crimes against children, not to even mention the cases which police decided were not "of merit" for court, Peter Steen was found Not Guilty on all counts.
Now look at the defence witness who purposely joined the support group on Facebook, thus putting himself open to direct interaction with prosecution witnesses - Contempt of Court.
Judge Parry, who, as a solicitor, represented most of the accused during the Waterhouse Inquiry - Insider info on events and prior knowledge of people. A Jury member would have to recuse themselves in similar circumstance.
Below is Daz Laverty's take on it
This man walked free from court on the judges orders today as the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision. Maybe they should  have read the publicly available Lost In Care Report. Everything below is taken from it. Justice? You having a laugh?
Peter Steen
The other main alleged physical abuser was Peter Steen, who has been named by 19 complainants.
Steen was about 36 years old when he joined the Community as a residential care worker at Bryn Alyn Hall.
