Yes, the building of houses on flood-prone land has been an issue here for years. Wealthy land developers with connections to both local and state governments is part of it, I suspect...

Most houses here won't last for 100 years. Floods give owners an excuse to rebuild.

I suspect there is very little control on building in Ozland? My uncle lived in Adelaide and was always building and rebuilding his house. Just added on rooms when required without any control. He was a local councillor of course.

There's plenty of building regulation in Australia. However, building on floodplains is an issue.

WTF.
Queensland tourism set to lose $35m as Easter holidaymakers rush to cancel bookings
Industry renews call for wage support as Covid outbreak crushes hopes days before the government’s half-price flights go on sale
FFS "Governments half-price flights". They are killing nature but just want to do it quicker?
Australians planning to travel to Queensland for the upcoming Easter holidays have been “cancelling their bookings hand over fist”, as airlines cull planned services in line with a dive in travel confidence triggered by state border restrictions.

Queensland’s tourism sector is expected to lose $35m by the end of Easter as a result of the latest spike in community transmissions of Covid-19 and resulting impacts on travel, according to predictions from both the Accommodation Association of Australia’s chief executive, Dean Long, and the Tourism and Transport Forum’s chief executive, Margy Osmond.

Ahead of the first phase of the government-subsidised half-price flights going on sale on Thursday, Long and Osmond have warned confidence to travel to Queensland has plummeted out of fear from travellers they could have to enter hotel quarantine if border conditions tighten while they are on holiday. Four of the 13 destinations, which are part of the government’s $1.2bn tourism support package, are located in Queensland.
A strong corruption smell on this one.

This notion of hate is amazing. Just because I cant stand either place does not mean I hate them. Hate is very extreme and I dont really hate anything. Hate is primeval and very basic. I dont HATE Edinburgh or the UK. I despise them for a lot of reasons. So please drop this hate thing it is very childish.

You're childish with your lack of nuance, black and white, view of everything.

Despise is a pretty strong word, too, rather than, say, just having a few issues with a given place or country... :tea:

Despise is as far as I would go though. More than a few issues though.
