Army go in

The Telegraph is reporting that the government is sending in the Army to the Somerset Levels.

Wouldn't the Navy be more appropriate?

I think you may be missing the point.

The Army is being sent to keep the stroppy locals cowed and under control.

And prevent them taking any action with the utterly useless Environmental Agency hasn't sanctioned in triplicate .... with permission from the EU Environment Kommissar.

We used to have one, perhaps we could send down an admiral or two?

Britain has indeed become an unfree shithole but even so I hardly think that squaddies are being sent to "cow" anybody. As usual they are being used as cheap labour--prob to dig and to fill sandbags. If the people of Somerset were so fired up that the EPA clowns needed the military to protect them, then I might have some hope for the UK after all.

Well said sir.

Anonyomous, you're too pessimistic - we still have a Royal Navy, and it might not be able to project power in distant parts of the world anymore, but by God it can certainly cope with the Somerset Levels. It probably has a few punts and suchlike to hand.

The Royal Navy?
Surely what's left of it is too busy letting the frogules teach it how to sail? The poor things probably couldn't even find Somerset any more.
