PM visits Somerset
It barely seems like 3 weeks ago that we couldn’t even get a junior minister to take an interest. Today Prime Minister David Cameron joined the long line of the great and good making their pilgrimage to the waters edge. He met with Somerset County Council Leader John Osman today and thanked him for the work of SCC staff in response to the devastating flooding. Cllr Osman said: “I’m delighted that the Prime Minister recognised all the hard work and many hours that so many people have put in over the last few weeks.”
Cameron visited the Levels to see the devastation at first hand, stopping at a flooded farm in Fordgate before going on to visit evacuated residents at the makeshift rescue facility set up at the Westfield Church Centre in Bridgwater. The Prime Minister, if nothing else, demonstrated that he learns from the mistakes of others. Shiny shoes passed muster for Owen Paterson on his visit, Cameron chose wellies!
