Webb: Katrina problems no big deal

Justin Webb, reporting on the BBC’s 5-Live radio program this morning about Americans’ reactions to the seeming inability of the government to get food and water to so many of those stranded in New Orleans, says that the people are astonished at “what should be, frankly, not really that huge a problem.” Perhaps the relief efforts should enlist Webb’s extensive experience at what he apparently thinks is the relatively simple task of rescuing and feeding thousands of people stranded in a city that is 80% under water.

Ha! Webb just gets better by the day. Someone should set up a WebbWatch blog. It's the little enclaves of BBC Radio such as 4 and 5 are were the BBC's bias is at its most rampant.

And the affected area is the same size as the UK....I think even we would be hard pressed if say the whole of our country was flooded!

Matt Frei on just now being his usual 'find all the bad points' and bugger the fact that people are working hard to sort things.
