New Labour lay off a dyke fingerer? I thought these people got 'fast tracked' to the top these days? (sorry tyrell!)

damn, are you implying HPC is gonna take 40 years!?!

If anyone does jump in and buy a house, make sure it's on a hill - now that would be a good investment.

I've got a house on a hill in Hampshire - so I'm sorted, as long as there's no hurricanes.

Have a look at "An Inconvenient Truth," then check out the worldwide "flood maps" by Alex Tingle featuring NASA satellite photography and adjustable sea rise. Buy your home accordingly, avoiding the entire south of England, West of Ireland, all of the Benelux countries......
