Nothing No Action No Media - what are we doing to Save the Murray?

The answer is very straight forward - nil nix nothing. The ABC put together a magnificent Four Corners everyone gets a bit emotional and of it wanders into the ether.

Why can we not have a monthly update of progress at Government Level. The South Australian Government is looking at a Bill and an Amendment handing Control of the River to the Federal Government.

On one hand it is the right thing to do but until they have full control why. One could cynically ask does the local Government believe it will deflect the anger of the community. Therefore do we have the commitment of State Government to continue to actively lobby the Federal Government for a fairer deal on allocation particularly when the amount of water is infinitesimal compared to other states.

But still there are know significant actions that are appearing to be taken anywhere right now.
