As long-time blog readers will know, I’ve had a bee in my bonnet about water restrictions for some time. A short opinion piece in today’s SMH expands on some of the arguments I made in a blog entry here last November, and adds a few more. In a nutshell, I argue that we should abolish water restrictions, and set the right price for water. Incidentally, this isn’t unrelated to a recent suggestion that Sydney might want to find a few more water supply sources.
Alas, I suspect that most of the SMH readers who might have been outraged enough to write in and condemn me are more likely to be experiencing schadenfreude over the latest twist of the Abbott affair. Blood is, after all, thicker than water.
