Do you think it's right...

That people who don't buy houses on flood plains / river valleys should pay increased insurance premiums to bolster up those people who do, even though I feel sorry for them ?

Not everyone knows, when they buy their house, that they lie on a flood plain. even at the top of a hill, you may live on one; it's not that simple. The whole insurance idea relies on everyone subsidising everyone else - what about the fact that you are covered for burgalary, but not everyone will get burgled? Saying that, it's pretty clear, after this summer that all of those on a flood area will probably have to pay an increased premium anyway!

If somebody tried to burgle me ( after getting past the dog !), they'd probably feel sorry for me and leave some decent kit behind ! :rolleyes:
