Flood summit meetings were held today in Somerset between Government ministers and representatives of the insurance and financial industries. It had been feared that holding the talks in a county which was completely underwater would cause problems but this was not the case according to Flooding Minister Dan Rogerson:
“We floated a raft of proposals across the table and told them to ‘Bubble, gluggle, wubble’. They responded with a rather damp ‘Wurgle, gurgle, blurgle’, but we put our flippers down firmly and insisted, ‘Globble, wuggle, floggle.’”
“This is the sort of straight talking these people understand. I’m confident we got our message across.”
After the delegates surfaced for fresh air, an official from Lloyds Banking Group said “We have no idea what the minister was talking about, but it was much the same when we met the Government recently at Whitehall to discuss banking bonuses.”
