It's all happening in the land without water. The government looks to be stepping up to the plate, with more measures announced to help struggling farmers in the Southern Basin.
Still light on the details as yet, it seems there will be potential for some in the Southern Basin to grow crops with a drought assistance package.
Everyone knows politics is a game, with winners and losers; those on the in, those on the out. But perhaps the flaws in the game are highlighted when significant political players are unable to put a plan together, to work together, to get wheels in motion to deliver donated water from the MIA to other drought-stricken areas.
Weeks have been and gone since Tony Sergi threw caution to the wind and announced his intentions. Yet it wasn't until The Area News started asking questions on the delivery this week that those wheels turned - with more traction in one day than almost a month.
State Murray MP Helen Dalton says she has been asking for action only to see none taken. She has asked questions, with no real response.
Federal Farrer MP Sussan Ley said from the outset that she would be happy to work with Mrs Dalton in getting a plan ready. What ever happened to that?
Speaking to our journalist Thursday morning, Ms Ley's office said that as they spoke, Water NSW was being called to ascertain which communities needed water the most.
They would then work with those councils to deliver the water from the closest source, finding funds from drought programs if necessary. Within hours, they called back to say after numerous phone calls, it seemed the most logical and logistically less-challenging path would be to turn our water into cash.
Yet as Mr Sergi said - those farmers need water- it's a matter of survival. Farmers are having to shoot their stock. Families are beyond breaking point living in third-world conditions, unable to shower. Water is nowhere to be seen.
Apparently, getting our water to them is too challenging a task for our elected government.
With talks now apparently underway, it remains to be seen if Mr Sergi's plan will be defeated by red tape and game playing.
A hugely popular idea sparked from one pioneering irrigator in our community could potentially be lost because politicians refuse to play nice with each other.
