Trouble is the rate since 2005 doubled that of the previous two decades and in the '70's it was flat.

It's arguable whether those economic models have been a success. Financial management is one thing, not many businesses or households would survive long without it, but crystal ball gazing is another. That Canadian chap who runs the Bank of England for instance consistently gets things wrong, unfortunately too many people making decisions based on his utterings.
The thing with this argument is a bit like economists, no one is right!

One last word, then I won't bother posting anymore. In my teens, I lived in Skegness, so know Wainfleet well. Or I thought I did. I don't recognise the place now . All the housing I have seen on TV look like newish buildings to me. Built on a flood plain ?
I will now get back in the workshop before I upset anyone else.

I don't think you've upset anyone, forums are for discussions and debate (like the ones we have in our clubhouse, although they can get a bit heated). Keep posting, there are some very interesting topics on here as well the wealth of technical knowledge from members around the world.
We all moan about the internet at times, but it has created many 'families' for various activities and hobbies.

Money - in your pocket and in the bank on Monday there was a program that included some history of the Bank of England. Not what you thought.
At 1100ft I'm not too worried about flooding. If the water reaches me the world is doooomed.

Where I live in north yorkshire we get our water from keilder & we've never had a hosepipe ban,I have a large veg garden & have storage tanks on the house,workshop,barn & garage,about 800 gallons & we're on a meter as only the 2 of us,the last thing I want to do is pay for water for the garden,when you pay your water bill the sewerage rate is based on water used so I suppose "technicnally" if you use rainwater to flush the toilet your actually fiddling them.

Unfortunately many modern houses have been built on flood plains.

There is a large undergorund beehive cistern under my workshop, a left over from the previous victorian (or earlier) buildings. It is fed from the roof gutters ,it is BIG and thanks to our new wetter climate, stays full constantly. I have a pumped pressure system that flushes both toilets, and supplys water for handwashing to one instantaneous and one storage water heater. I also have a raw water tap for pressure washing. The only water charges I pay is the one to put your surface water into the sewer. I pay no sewage charge whatsoever, as sewage charge is based on a percentage of the water that goes through my meter, and as that water does not feed the toilets cisterns, they cannot make a sewage charge. I negotiated this deal with Yorkshire water, it was not a problem although they tried to make me pay a sewage charge untill they realised that I Knew they couldnt! You own the water that falls on your property and every Sq ft of roof provides .6 of a gallon per inch of rainfall!
