David Landini standing in the NSW state election in the electorate of Murray.
I will be standing as a candidate for the electorate of Murray in the N.S.W state election on 23rd of March.
My primary objective will be to form The Riverina into a state separate from N.S.W. This will increase the influence of people in The Riverina in relation to the Commonwealth and other states infinitely.
Forming The Riverina state is the only way to overcome the domination of metropolitan politicians and achieve satisfactory results in the irrigation and timber disasters, and other issues relevant to The Riverina. Nothing less will make any difference.
The people in the electorate of Murray have been in an ongoing water disaster since the passage of the Water Act in 2007. This disaster is destroying irrigation and associated industries and ensuring the continual loss of employment and removal of people from this area in search of work.
This disaster has been fully formed and maintained by National, Liberal, Labor and Green politicians. They have all voted for the Water Act and repeatedly declared that the ruinous Basin Plan will be delivered in full and on time. A vote for the National, Liberal, Labor or Greens parties is a vote to continue devastating the livelihoods of the people in the electorate of Murray.
The flow of water in productive use out of the Murray Darling Basin must be stopped. Instead, the quantity of water in productive use must be vastly increased.
However, N.S.W. is so dominated by the population and number of politicians in Newcastle, Sydney and Wollongong that even if the National party is replaced in Murray, this by itself will not improve anything. Politics is numbers, and the numbers are by far and away in Newcastle, Sydney and Wollongong, and not here.
The only hope for a prosperous future for the people of Murray is to form The Riverina into a state separate from N.S.W. A Riverina state will interact with the Commonwealth and other state governments as a state in its own right. This will infinitely increase the capabilities of the people in Murray and the wider Riverina. This state will serve the interests of its own citizens and not the misconceptions of green orientated metropolitan voters.
I will initiate a referendum of the people of Murray and the wider Riverina on whether to form The Riverina into a state separate from N.S.W. I am confident this referendum will succeed and that the N.S.W parliament will defer to the will of the people and consent to this separation. The consent of the N.S.W parliament is the only Constitutional requirement of achieving statehood.
I will be asking for your vote to ensure the survival and prosperity of the people in Murray by the only way possible; by forming The Riverina state.
