The result, lots of blockages which lead to lots of horrendous floods when it rained, which in turn ruined the lives of many people who found their downstairs rooms flooded with filthy smelly water. Now those people are stuck in their houses. They will likely never be able to sell them as no-one will want to touch houses that are now prone to flooding.

Of course once we are out of the EU bureaucracy we can get back to doing things properly.

There was a comprehensive EU directive regarding maintaining waterways and a later one referred to in this thread that required the consevatio of ecosystems and biodiversity

The lack of maintenance of our waterways has more to do with the demise of the BWB and lack of government funding which is a domestic issue and nothing to do with the EU
