Prime Minister – Our water is too precious to be left to Barnaby Joyce

The troubles surrounding the Murray Darling Basin Plan are reaching fever pitch.

Barnaby Joyce thinks the Murray Darling Basin Plan is a ‘greenie’ conspiracy designed to hurt farmers and shut down regional towns. 

He’s refused to investigate claims that billions of litres were stolen from Australian taxpayers – simply because he likes the people who allegedly stole it. 

Barnaby might have been re-elected as the Member for New England but he shouldn’t be reappointed as the Minister for Water. 

He can’t do the job and he should never have been asked to do it in the first place.

It was a mistake the first time – don’t make the same mistake again.

Attention:  Malcolm Turnbull
Prime Minister of Australia
Water Minister

Dear Prime Minister

The Murray River needs your help.

It’s not Barnaby’s water to give away – it’s all of ours to share.

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.

The health of the River and the future of Murray Darling Basin communities are in your hands.

Keep our water away from Barnaby Joyce by keeping Barnaby Joyce away from the water portfolio.

Yours Sincerely,
