Calling for a debate on the storms - it's a bit like the old (and now renewed) political promise that if elected they will drain the Shannon.
Much better if they talk about reducing CO2 outputs and putting resilience into our response to climate change and ensuring the planning system does not allow any more building on flood plains.
Relocating low-lying dwellings will probably be cheaper and more effective than putting up dykes around them as per the Dutch model.
