If you click on this post you will be taken to George Monbiot's thoughts on funding and flooding. Please take a few moments to read it. Maybe Owen Paterson should do so...

Another healthy dose of ocular wool removal treatment from Monbiot.

£1m granted for 'rewilding' rivers yet grousemoors get £24m. Sick. Reverse those numbers.

He's got a point with sheep farming though Andrew, I gather your not a Monbiot disciple?

It appears I have been misunderstood. I am a fan of Monbiot.

"Another healthy dose of ocular wool removal treatment from Monbiot." - This was alluding to the fact that Monbiot is good at lifting the wool that gets pulled over our eyes.

"£1m granted for 'rewilding' rivers yet grousemoors get £24m. Sick. Reverse those numbers." - There was a mention in the article you referred to that pointed out a scheme to replace natural 'snaggy' parts of a river was granted £1m yet grousemoor management benefitted from £24m in subsidies and they cause water to run off their land by way of treeless landscapes. These subsidies have been awarded the wrong way round. Mind you, why should the latter get anything?

Apologies Andrew - I wrongly seemed to remember a previous Monbiot comment from you, but I am imagining things. I'm getting a bit old...
