Ripping water away from NSW farnmers.

Ripping water away from NSW farnmers.
Language is everything when you are spinning. This quotation is from the NSW Nationals web page in response to a SA report on water management.

Quote:The NSW Nationals will not accept these calls to rip more water away from drought-stricken farmers because another State says so. We will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our communities and will fight anyone who wants to take even a single drop of water away.

The trouble is, no water has ever been ripped away from farmers. They sold the water to either the environment or to larger holdings.

Libertarians are like house cats. They are convinced of their fierce independence while utterly dependent on a system they neither appreciate nor understand.

It would be interesting to see just how big the cotton crop will be this year.
according to landline most of the water allocations have been cut to nil because of the drought.
They showed one guy with 25 hectares watered from a bore, -he normally has 5500 hectares in a good year.

RE: Ripping water away from NSW farnmers.
Yes language is important especially when it's used by politicians.

If ..IF .. Cubby has 'stolen' our water then when will charges be laid?
Cuz said he saw drone footage of Cubby's dams full to overflowing and the crops all green and healthy.
People from that area swear that most of their dams are empty and the crop cut back severely.
Who's fibbin'? I asked Cuz did the ABC give the date that video was shot?? Nup. So, were they "file photos"??

As are the ones we see of Bayswater with the steam billowing out on a particularly busy day? Same shots every time and they are years old. Years.

Now here's what I heard about those SA reports. Or perhaps not about them, as while the Darling runs dry, and the fish die in their millions in NSW, Lake Alexandrina is currently .. that is currently, not years ago .. at 90% normal water levels.

Where did all that water come from?? Did Cubby post it to them??

South Australia has been strutting a stage way too large for it's act lately. Good on 'em for pulling it off but hey, it's water from the Darling River they're skiing on.

Money doesn't trickle down but blame trickles North. They blame us for stealing the water that is not missing. NSW blames Qld. pity bout Qld eh?

'Our' Menindee lakes were raided to allow 'environmental flow' to the SA wetlands. seriously?
SA's rights to donate fresh water to the bloody ocean is more important than supporting food production?

So yes massive mismanagement has been going on but it hasn't all been mismanaged one way. The enviro allocations have been as damaging, and stupid, as over allocation to irrigation.

And it's not only the Nats to blame for 'spinning' it. Tony Burke is part of that 'management' gig. Who would put a city Labor boy in charge of rural water allocations?? siiiiiigh.

Gotta agree with you Joycy !
Aunty has a track record of using the same old tired footage to highlight any story.
For example, the current floods in Townsville, they keep showing the same footage from a week ago to back up today's events.
......and when scare mongering the latest flue outbreak, we see the same old man from last year receiving his flu shot from the same doctor.

You make that sound as though it hurts Tezza. [Image: yellow-laughing-smiley-emoticon.gif]

Aunty is shameless about using stock footage in that they rarely or far too subtly label it as such. Even the 'commie' channels usually flash "File footage" on their background shots.

But you know good old Aunty, they'll just blame the cuts in funding.

Saw a very squirmy interview with Quentin Dempster the other night.
Some bloke on Sky absolutely roasted him. Ever seen Dempster squirm when pressed for an answer? He was trying to defend the ABC against accusations of bias. ... and he bloody couldn't!
The more he said the deeper he got. Wish I could recall the interviewer but it sure shows that they're not great performer outside of their protected little circle of like minded Lefties.

Dempster is no idiot, but he's a very bad poker player. That's in his favour that at least he looked embarrassed about the examples raised of their biased treatment of issues.

Wish I'd recorded it.
