Local MP Ian Liddell-Grainger, who represents Bridgwater and West Somerset, described Lord Smith as a "coward" and a "little git" ahead of his meeting with flooded residents today.
He said: "I will tell him what I bloody well think of him - he should go, he should walk. I'm livid. This little git has never even been on the telephone to me.
"When I find out where he is, I will give it to him. He has not told the local MPs, the local council or the local press where he is going to be.
"He's a coward."
As the flood crisis has escalated, so has the practicality of the footwear and clothing worn by Britain's politicians.
David Cameron has donned his wellies to visit Britain's flood-stricken areas, but was it all too late?
As the Westminster blame game rages on, the government must show victims of the catastrophic flooding that it has a grip on the crisis.
