  1. Rich irrigators seem to benefit the most when it come to funds from the Murray Darling basin plan with the help of the totally corrupt LNP looking after their mates and families farming operations while sucking the system dry to the point where it is today they should be in jail but no their in government.

  2. The squabbling over water has been going on almost since settlement began, so far the Darling/Murray basin plan has been, while far from perfect, the best they've come up with. Ever since it came into operation people, farmers, politicos, the media etc. have been chipping away at it trying to undermine it. Too little care about the future, and too much greed in the present seems to be the main stumbling block.

  3. Emily Burley is gorgeous. Look at her natural beauty, conservative media outlets always have natural knock-out beauties on camera. Now I understand why viewers of the gAyBC, 7, 9 & 10 are so cranky, because they have to look at vegan feminists while conservatives watch Sky & we get these adorable & naturally beautiful beauties. Thank you Rupert for hiring intelligent women who are naturally beautiful also.
