It wasn't our fault

Mini Dev was on Prime Time tonight blathering on about the weather and the floods. It was all the rain’s fault was the gist of his mumblings. Yeah but he’s leaving out (a) the lack of preparedness, (b) lack of maintenance of the waterways, (c) building in flood plains and (d) lack of a comprehensive communications strategy.

Why have none of the professional media investigated the ESB's release of 535 cubic metres of water per second at high tide without adequate warning in Cork? Really I want to know. Why is our media competent only at stirring up divisions between the public and private sectors?
