Blog comments Your Say

  • Yes, Harriet. The first step is for them to admit to their mistake / mismanagement / error of judgement / incompetence or self preservation Governmental Intervention; then those of us who are the members of the 16,000 Club (the owners of the 16,000 damaged homes and businesses) will be able to get on with rebuilding our homes, businesses and therefore our lives!

    If the culprits are not brought to justice for this gross mismanagement of a multi million dollar public facility, if there is no recompense for their failure in their responsibility to us the public; then we who are at the mercy of their mistake / mismanagement / error of judgement / incompetence or self preservation Governmental Intervention will live in fear that they will, if only to vindicate their previous actions, do it again. Again they will fail in their duty of care to us, the public who relied on the correct management Wivenhoe Dam to do what it was built for and protect us in the Brisbane and Ipswich cities.

    I for one have not been able to be at peace in my own home since I realised the inundation of my home was not a natural event but the gross mismanagement of a multi million dollar public facility.

    Simply TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE ~ THEN PANIC!

    The above link tells a very damming story!

    When they were releasing 205,000 & 215,000 mega litres on day 6 & 7 the water was receding at the rate it had risen from my house.

    If the release rate had been increased to over 200,000 MEGALITRES on days 1 â?? 4 there would have been no reason to release 645,000 MEGALITRES on day 5.

  • T'is all very odd. When the new state government is elected what will they do about this Dam fiasco.

  • Thank God there are people like David Stark who are prepared to pursue so relentlessly the truth behind the mismanagement of Wivenhoe during the floods. I watched the live stream of the Inquiry and am gpb-smacked at the contagious amnesia and the very obvious collusion. One can only hope Catherine Holmes saw it as clearly and is prepared to find accordingly. If not, I pity the residents living in Brisbane as it will happen again and again and lives will be lost.

  • Deception sounds a lot like what Labor is all about doesn't it.
