Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: The Murray Darling Basin

July 30th, 2007 at 06:13am

Weekly? Probably not…but I should at least try to make it weekly.

Anyway, this week’s question:

Should Victoria cancel their court challenge and hand over control of the Murray Darling river system to the federal government?

Total Votes: 28

Apart from that, there is a precedent in place which will allow the federal government to take over control anyway, so all Victoria are doing by mounting a high court challenge is wasting an awful lot of taxpayers’ money.

That being said, I’m only one voice in many, so I look forward to your responses.

The last poll I ran had the following results:

Does it annoy you when Samuel doesn’t write something he said he was going to write?
