  1. Britain has been broke for many years, regardless of the banking activities. Their infrastructure was crumbling 35 years ago………and, they are having disasters as a result. You cannot build something once and not maintain it for decades……in the end, it will not hold. Manmade items, like man, have a relatively short life……….
    They need to do what we need here, also…….pour some funds into infrastructure programs, put lots of people to work, and save their wonderful, historic cities.
    This is such a horrible thing to happen.
    Thanks for covering it. The rising sea levels are also a factor…….all money going into the pockets of the greedy guts, while everyone else is forgotten is destroying the west.
