Fencing in water

Ok, the IFSC management have gone bananas

Ok, the IFSC management have gone bananas. They’ve FENCED in George’s Dock, using those high, portable fences usually used on building sides. What the hell is going on?

Behind the wire, a duck and drake are escorting a flotilla of ducklings. Have they turned savage? Have the mullet grown teeth? Is it to stop the local kids from going swimming, in case they upset the fragile reality-tunnels of the yuppie middle-class? Maybe it’s even to stop the kids from impaling themselves on some Victorian industrial artefact.
