Hull Floods Bill highest in the country

In Uncategorized on December 14, 2007 at 11:30 pm

The Audit Commission have revealed that the floods bill for Hull City Council will be £51.43m; the highest in the country. The council will have to find £36.51m of that bill.

One of the reasons the bill is so high is that the council has had to fork out around £10m to repair council homes affected by the flooding.

Meanwhile the government bails out Northern Rock with billions of pounds worth of taxpayers’ money, but will not even come close to paying the bill facing the council tax payers of Hull: £36.51m is peanuts in comparison. I have had the misfortune of being flooded; my insurance bill will increase dramatically and now I will have to pay more council tax and possibly face a reduction in council services.

Thank you Mr Brown for all your help, but then you know already that the voters in this city will misguidedly elect three Labour MPs at the next election. We really have been pissed on from a great height.
