The skate park at Bairnsadale flooded by water from the Mitchell River yesterday.

GOSH, is that really water, knee-deep over the Wy Yung Football Clubs oval in Bairnsdale?
Excuse me for doubting my eyes, but Victoria's former Labor government did tell us such floods would rarely happen again, thanks to global warming.
That's why we couldn't have a dam on the Mitchell River that's now flooding Bairnsdale, you see.
That's why Labor had to build a desalination plant instead, for $5.7 billion.
What an utter farce. And if your water bills hadn't gone through the roof to pay for it, you'd laugh.
But let's rewind. Melbourne has a million more people since it built its last dam, and we needed a new one to tide us over the dry spells in this land of droughts and flooding rains.
