Elsewhere, in Putney, roads have been flooded by the rising waters.

News Shopper: Allin Alldridge found his path blocked by rising waters

The tide has been high for several days. On Monday, Arin Alldridge tweeted: "Today, my walk along the Greenwich Thames pathway, to the gym, was a little more challenging than usual."

A spokesman for the Environment Agency said: "Currently the river levels are high along the Thames in response to high spring tides and tidal surge activity.

"The spring tides have now peaked today but we can expect water levels to remain high over the next day or so with Flood Alerts in place.

"Currently we are not expecting any property flooding as a result but we will continue to monitor the situation closely.

"People can keep updated on the situation via the flood warning page on our website environment-agency.gov.uk/flood or by contacting Floodline on 0845 988 1188."

Idiot.

I read all sides of an issue, not just some hare brained conspiracy theory for sheeple like yourself to swallow.

You got this weeks rent money yet ? I'm sure it's a front wheel skid that will be collecting it. Probably named Hymie Rothschild.

Liberals don't have the brains to work out what is going on they live in the rose tinted glasses world. What do they say, "we live in a democratic world". A democratic world where 1% of bloodline rule the planet. now that is democracy from a liberal.

Orpington is a very conservative area, I once heard about how a conservative member of orpington said "no way will Orpington be anything different". So what do the Labour do, move poor people into orpington and run it down to get more votes for labour. Called manipulation and playing both sides. Oh and money controls it all and doesn't exist. MANIPULATION!! smoke and mirrors, see beyond it and then gasp at how they do it.
