Green Party leader Natalie Bennett has insisted Environment Secretary Owen Paterson should be replaced as floods continue to hamper the rescue effort.
Ms Bennett told Murnaghan on Sky News: "I think David Cameron really should be looking at whether he should have an Environment Secretary who has shown he doesn't grasp the reality of climate change.
"So I think we really need to see a new environment secretary and we need to see a reversal of the cuts that the Environment Agency has suffered."
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.
