You still believe that absolute twaddle?

I lived in Godalming when it was flooded in December 2013 and moved to Windsor's 'golden triangle' just in time for the floods in Wraysbury. All my friends, neighbours, colleagues and flood insurance company would say you're talking absolute twaddle.

Anyway, back to gazing at the beautiful Blue Flag beach by my balcony, and before you start off with "But Blue Flag isn't an EU directive, etc..." I know, but did you know it's standards were incorporated in the EC Water Framework Directive?
