Government Water Policy: 'Pray for Rain'.

If it wasn't so tragic, displaying such lack of vision, you'd have to laugh.

"I say without any hint of irony, you should all continue to pray for rain.
John Winston Howard.

In denial in the face of the evidence of global climate change, in denial that the endless drought, the empty dams, the year after year lack of rainfall could be the result of it.

Record windfall tax revenues from Australian companies. Record commodity prices, because of other countries' explosive development, not our government's policies.

But the well-being of Australia and our future is ignored in favour of self-interest, of buying the next election time after time, of retaining power with handouts. No investment in the creaking infrastructure that's hindering our exports. No investment in water management.

Keep spending the money to keep yourself in power and tell us to 'pray for rain'.

History will judge John Howard harshly.
