Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
England will come to discover the need for a Dutch kind of water board? And please follow the link, even when you do think what it is - it's another wonderful example of terminological confusion.

The Dutch water board (Hoogheemraadschap) is a diary worthy subject and quintessentially Dutch.

Of course not, The market will provide.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Spain also has a water board, in Valencia. Amazingly, nobody has any idea when it started.
