We, in England, are officially in a drought. Anyone who flies into the UK, over the lush green countryside, will understand that our droughts don’t involve the bleached bones of animals on the bed of cracked, dried up river beds. Our droughts mean that the inefficient water companies lose more water through cracked pipes than is entering the system through rainfall.
Since the official announcement of the drought a month or so ago it, literally, has not stopped raining. We have flood warning and drought warnings at the same time.
