‘We get a lot of money out of being in this’
-We get a lot of money out of being in this-
This is the statement from a NSW State government Minister (now exited politics) explaining why NSW will not consider withdrawing from the Federal Government Basin Plan.
Presumably the same reason applies to Victoria.
The people in the irrigation areas of The Riverina and northern Victoria are being sold out by their State governments in exchange for Federal government financial rewards.
A Riverina State is needed to escape the super domination and corruption of NSW by the politicians of Newcastle, Sydney, and Wollongong, and the super domination and corruption of Victoria by politicians of Melbourne, Geelong, and the Mornington Peninsula.
This State is needed – Now!
