Labor betrays entire Basin by blocking northern review
15 February 2018
Federal Labor has betrayed Basin irrigators and communities by joining the Greens to vote against a reduction in the amount of water to be recovered in the northern Basin.
The move jeopardises the future of the Murray Darling Basin Plan and the future of our communities in northern Victoria.
Our Basin communities are at breaking point, but Federal Labor continues to put politics before people.
Victoria’s Labor Senators have failed the communities they were elected to represent, remaining completely silent through this debate.
Unlike Labor, the Liberals and Nationals - both State and Federal - have always supported our Basin irrigators and communities.
We are not prepared to sell our Basin communities down the river.
