Brown caught lying about flood compensation

FURIOUS victims of the summer floods told last night how they had been fobbed off with just £250 in compensation – and a trip to a zoo “to cheer them up”.

Gordon Brown promised Government cash would get people “back on their feet as quickly as possible” just days after the devastation in June.

But many families, who have spent three months living in caravans, cheap hotels, or crammed into the upstairs rooms of their waterlogged homes, have been told they cannot have any cash.

These people have lost everything and now the government decides not to pay what they promised to the victims of the floods. This is a betrayal to the people of hull who have paid their taxes and now are being refused any help and being fobbed off with what is basically pocket money and a trip to the zoo.
