  • Of cause they did Bob the terms of reference given to these so called enquiries did not go far enough. But facts with the recent floods do not tell the lies that was told in 2011 nor the damage.

  • I'm pretty happy to go with the results of the Flood Commission and the CMC enquiry. Neither mentioned Bligh.
    I'm pretty happy to the dam engineers to stick to their manual as it is adjusted after each flood event and as more is known about the way floodplains and infrastructure interact.
    I'm not happy that CanLie chose to perform a political stunt to boost his fast flagging fortunes.
    Waiting for his answer to the question "Did your political stunt of releasing water prior to Oswald's rain increase the danger of flooding in Brisbane?"
    He didn't or couldn't answer it when asked and wanted to wait until after modelling had been done.
    Has the modelling been done now CanLie?

  • @Cry,
    Anna flooded Brisbane through mismanagemet , end of story.
    I knew it back then and the saga that followed just reinforced my theory.
    Thanks Campbell for saving our city from the destruction that could haqve been.

  • Its a pity that Anna didn't do the same thing in 2011 Bob, it would have saved a lot of heartache.
    Congrats to Campbell for saving so many homes from the destruction that Labor caused in the last flood through mismanagemnet and cover ups.

  • True story Steve.
    Flood was 7 metres lower.
    2011 , It had rained for over a month, Campbell Newman warned people of the3 impending wet season.
    Anna chose to do nothing until it was too late.
    We were still on water restrictions and the dams were bursting at the seams, still she chose to do nothing until the 11th hour where she opened the dam and flooded Brisbane.
    You would have to be a cretin not to understand that mate.
