The author explores his views on the failure of British communities secretary Erick Pickles to pick up on the shortcomings of a piece of policy that has been cooked up between October 2013 and March 2014 between the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and the Association of the British insurers. The Flood Re policy allows property owners to have access to priced flood insurance. The scheme's lack of coverage of the old testament principles is noted.
