Fire, Flood... Plague?

I've read this sort of thing on the web in a few places, and it made me chuckle at the time:

Well, since you have been PM. I'm starting to wonder whether Mr. Brown if you really are Frank Spencer-esque. In just four weeks the UK has endured, 2 foiled terror attacks, 1 weird fire-ball attack on a Scottish Airport. UK flooded twice. Due to housing built on flood-planes, and many years of government blind-eye syndrome. This has cause total misery and potential human threatening diseases to the areas affected. All this in 4 weeks! I'm half expecting a plague of locusts to hit the UK shores

So I wasn't too surprised when I heard tonight's report on Midlands Today about how we could be about to face a plague of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes need still water to breed, so as flood waters recede and puddles form, this can provide a breeding ground for them (this usually takes up to 4 weeks). They're responsible for the spread of diseases like malaria.

Perhaps it's all just a bad coincidence, but it's not the best start for Gordon Brown.
