The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Referendum for National Water Management

From ABC Online:

Mr Howard says parochial differences need to be put aside in order to protect Australia’s water resources. He says water management is Australia’s greatest environment challenge and must be approached on a national basis.

As with the Snowy River Hydro Scheme, I suspect that it would only be a matter of time before the federal government of the day would then want to privatise the whole scheme. Create a national monopoly and then flog it off to the highest bidder with some hefty consultancy commissions to be made by corporate patrons.

In principle, I support a national approach to managing the Murray-Darling Rivers, so let’s have a referendum on the matter to transfer power to federal administration, and include a second option to amend the constitution to prevent any government ever privatising it.
