In recent years, the Jet Stream has increasingly become stuck over the UK, causing prolonged periods of rain and extensive flooding. The Government has repeatedly dismissed demands for huge expenditure on flood controls as "not cost-effective".
However, following a near-riot when the Environment Minister visited Somerset earlier this week, the Prime Minister today announced a plan to push the Jet Stream well away from the uk. Mr Cameron said this would be achieved by exploding two small nuclear bombs just north of the Scottish coastline. He said these controlled explosions would take place in the early hours of Sunday morning, and would have no ill-effects on people, animals or vegetation.
The PM said experts had assured him that this would solve the problem for 2014, and he would not hesitate to repeat this nuclear process as necessary in years to come.
