The troubles surrounding the Murray Darling Basin Plan are reaching fever pitch. It feels as though there could be another scandal break any day, the rorting has been so rife.
The Nationals lost the water portfolio because of Barnaby Joyce’s personal incompetence, and the truth is, they’ve proven they can’t be trusted with it. It needs to stay out of the Nationals’ hands for good

Attention: Malcom Turnbull
Prime Minister of Australia
Dear Prime Minister
The Basin Plan is crumbling.
Under the Nationals watch, big corporate irrigators have been financially benefiting off of the Basin Plan at the expense of downstream river communities and the health of the Murray River.
Immediate action is needed now to restore the health of our Murray River and reinstate the integrity of the Basin Plan.
The water portfolio must stay out of the National hands for good. We call on you to refuse to give the Nationals back the water portfolio, and prioritise fixing the Basin Plan.
The health of the River and the future of Murray Darling Basin communities are in your hands.
