The drought has effected everyone in Australia deeply. Farmers have been finding it particularly hard. In Mildura it has been our blockies suffering.
It is hard to believe that Dareton in NSW, ten minutes out of Mildura is getting more water than our Mildura blockies. Without enough water a lot of blockies have had to either let part of their crop die or let it all die. In Dareton someone I know said that his crop is probably going to be one of his best. So why is it that NSW blockies are getting more water than those in Victoria? Not only is Victoria one of the main places that sell fruit and wine, but why are Victorian blockies less important than NSW blockies? Shouldn’t they get the same amount of water?
Please tell me what you think?
