A word in your ear, cobber

The Australian Federal Election 2007 may be called at any time now. If you are an Australian living, working or travelling overseas, I ask you to consider the following.

This is a photograph of the Clarence River on the NSW North Coast. An estimated 113,000 people rely on the health and productivity of this river.

Because the Howard Government has spent the last eleven years marking time instead of tackling climate change and water security head on, this river is now at risk.

If you vote for the Liberal Party, Country Liberal Party, Nationals or Family First, you will be voting to allow John Howard and Malcolm Turnbull to rob this river of its vital freshwater flows to compensate for their past inaction with regard to water scarcity in the Murray Darling Basin and south-east Queensland.

Please remember the Clarence River when you cast your vote.
