Andrew Bolt loves to cry about how teh evil Leftists are running this state into the ground.
MELBOURNE’s summer water storage levels have slumped to their lowest point in 25 years… Yarra Valley Water managing director Tony Kelly, said Victorians were now using an “unacceptable” amount of water…
TENS of thousands of houses sweltered through the night as sizzling heat caused power outages across the state…. “These extreme temperatures and excessive use of air conditioning can impact on the electricity distribution network,’’ Mr Batey said.
MELBOURNE’S train system buckled under the strain of Wednesday’s heat, forcing maintenance workers to cool the rails with water… But commuters were left boiling mad after enduring more than 150 cancelled services in one of the system’s worst days in recent memory…
PUBLIC Transport Minister Lynne Kosky has blamed ”underinvestment over a long period of time” as a key factor in the poor performance of Melbourne’s public transport network in recent weeks.
But it’s not actually teh Leftists, it’s extreme weather events.
Melbourne has experienced below-average rainfall for the past decade.
Melbourne is sweltering through a once-in-a-century heatwave that is placing enormous demands on power supplies, with interruptions due to fuses blowing and not lack of supply.
I’m no real fan of Connex, but when rails are physically buckling and breaking due to the extreme heat I do tend to understand that problems are largely out of their control.
Maybe the weather is leftist?
