Commenting on the ongoing flooding in South Yorkshire, TUC Regional Secretary Bill Adams said:
“The government is treating this flooding as if it is a normal event.
“But try telling that to families who can’t afford home insurance and who will be left destitute.
“Instead of messing around with a mop, the prime minister should be taking this crisis seriously and providing emergency funding for devastated communities.
“We need a government that will put working families first and invest properly in tackling climate change.”
