Labor Betrays Basin Plan and Environment by Supporting Greens Disallowance Motion

15 Feb 2018 1:09 PM -
The Australian Labor Party have betrayed the people of the Murray Darling Basin while short-changing the environment at the same time. In what can only be described as an act of political bastardry, Labor has sided with the Greens to disallow the Northern Basin Review amendment.

Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA), President, Jeremy Morton said, “The betrayal by Labor for political expediency just leaves you feeling sick to the core. This decision makes all of us wonder why we bother to work in good faith on extremely difficult reforms like the Basin Plan only to return to the law of the jungle when political opportunity presents. To have Labor put politics ahead of science is simply astounding.”
