Brexit must NOT mean Clexit!

Tell David Cameron it's time to act on flooding

The UK is flooding once again. Earlier this month Storm Desmond led to a record rainfall and devastating floods in Cumbria and the north of England.

And now Storms Eva and George have blown in - with Lancashire,  Yorkshire and Scotland particularly threatened by more devasting floods.

But the Government isn't investing enough in flood defences, isn't planning properly for extreme climate change and is keeping us hooked on climate-changing fossil fuels.

Sign our joint petition with Greenpeace to tell David Cameron it's time to protect the country from the risks of flooding.
