There was a police officer on the news telling someone to show I'd as there are people trying to get in that don't live in the village but say they do.

Reply August 16, 2019 Spyro The Dragon 1.3 million tons of water being held by that dam, with heavy rain forecast tomorrow and later next week I hope they sure it up before the worst happens. Reply August 16, 2019 tiada nama I don't think that hole in the damn dam occured right after the heavy rain it's been there for years and nobody gives a fuk cause there's lack of fund for maintenance, end of story. Call me sherlock Reply August 16, 2019 Leo from Freo This looks ominous. Reply August 16, 2019 20Sports What amount of people are inconsiderable then? Reply August 16, 2019 Chris Spavins No need to worry we have Neoliberalism on our side. The free market will look after the damn and everything will turn out in whatever the invisible hand decides. In the meantime the Johnson forecast is optimism can fix the damn and secure a Brexit simultaneously. The power of positive thinking should never be damned or dismissed out of hand. Reply August 16, 2019 citizen1994 You absalute girls howd you think they coped with the great flood u cant even maintain a dam ffs Reply August 16, 2019 Robert Hubbard I'm not a dam builder, nor know a dam thing about building a dam. But dam, how smart is it to build a dam dam above a dam town and risk killing a bunch of dam people when the dam dam burst? Reply August 16, 2019 Laz Arus Mh Reply August 16, 2019 The Last Penny Wow! Proper news from BBC!Be safe Derbyshire! Reply August 16, 2019 Alexander J. You dont put a grass and earth dike next to a dam, just saying, who's man built this shat? Reply August 16, 2019 Melissa Sue H. In the USA, in California, a much larger dam structure had a similar spillway failure. The Canal and River Trust would do well to consult the California Water Authority on what the causes were and the repairs necessary at the Oroville Dam. Reply August 16, 2019 Beyond Belief A body of water on a gradient will flow to points of lower elevation. It's a fact of objective reality that most people deny every time they repeat their cult induced delusory belief that they live on a nature defying sphere. This reality defying space testicle means that EVERY body of water is supposedly declining in elevation away from you WITHOUT flowing….think about that. Knowing where you really are is the very emotional and psychological foundation of your existence. Without a true understanding that comports to the mechanics of the physical and "natural" world in favour of non demonstrable, non verifiable and non falsifiable stories, you're asking to be messed with. It's almost like such globe cult propaganda might even be designed to induce the susceptible individual into denying their direct reality and everyday experiences of lived life or something? Take responsibility, your children deserve better.

Avoid the "flat Earth movement" ….it's controlled opposition and only there to create debates and strawman arguments ….you observe a dam needs to be contained ….no different than the oceans…Resurrect your common sense …vast oceans are not bendy ! Stop being silly and study Euclid of Alexandria …the "father" of geometry nobody wants to talk about 😊 come to reality ….you will know everything is an illusion …they lie about everything under the Sun ….every claim is built upon the heliocentric model and therefore null and void ….Life is much better without the daily grind of mental and physical pollution ( all by design NEWS ….your children are not being nurtured in school the teachers don't know any better they've had the same garbage rammed down their throats from infancy …so have all of us …why in the hell should the lies be accepted ???? To preserve your false ego ? to fit in ?? you are being lied to ….Big time ! only you can change yourself …standalone united in knowledge ….belief is the enemy of knowing. Who are the dark forces ? They hide behind the men in robes …you never see them. Once you stop giving energy to the system it will fade away ….voting ?? you are voting to be lied to …it's a false dichotomy on all levels and created for division ….democracy 😂😂 49% want and 51% win 😂 perfect vision tool. Crazy earth people have no idea what's going on at around them ..the irony is everything is hidden in plain sight right under their noses but it gets worse than that ….when offered practical examples of why the claim is baseless the majority continue to defend the lies rather than go to the bother of taking a second look with their adult mind rather than that of a innocent and impressionable child in the classroom (cult hall) that's when the matter of insanity arises …being dishonest with oneself is of great concern to those around them especially young innocent and vulnerable minds. The claim is yours not mine ….my only claim is standing water is always level …that's my foundation that's you realise you know nothing because anything else is a lie ….to understand our surroundings we need full exploration what's the chances of that ? Wonder why they have the Antarctic treaty ? This really is war of the worlds …for real. Paul McCartney song …The fool on the hill sees the Earth go down on the world spins inside his head ….the sun does not go down it appears to ….the sun moves away from us that's why daylight tapers off ….The Sun is moving far into the vanishing point no different I'm looking down the railway track ….and the world is spinning inside the fools head because it doesn't spin any more money makes the world go round …go figure that one out 😊🌍😂 Reply August 16, 2019 Andrew Nothing to do with the weather all to do with zero maintenance!
