COUNTRY PEOPLE WILL LOSE THEIR VOICE
Why is it that country people are the ones that miss out when it comes in the review of our electoral boundaries?
It was just a few years ago that we had a review in March 2015, we were known as the Murrumbidghee electorate.
We went to a compact area to an area that covers a large area, that includes a lot of little towns Booligal, Hillston, Roto up north, Conargo down south, Griffith, Leeton, Binya are on the edge of the boundary and across to South Australia Wentworth Shire.
The area comprises a distance of 107362.2 square kilometres and the seat of Murray has a 500 kilometre boundary with Victoria and is the second largest electorate in NSW.
We country people are being discriminated against on account of our large area that we live in, the distance we have to travel for hospitals, doctors, accounts, big stores like Woolworths, Coles and Bunnings where city people have different interests than country people.
City people can drive or walk to their elected member's office, as country people have to drive many miles to see our elected member.
We country people are being discriminated by the distance we have to travel, country people are being discriminated by one vote one value that covers a large area compared to our city cousin.
They can drive or walk to their members' office. We do not need a large area for our member of Murray to cover.

CHINA'S 'MARCH' HAS TO BE STOPPED
The threat to worldwide extinction is not the fanciful pretence climate change exercise nonsense, but rather China's communism on the march across the world.
Couple this with their ever-present military might we see regularly on our TV news.
Such as conveniently displayed to intimidate the viewers into submission.
China's motivation is to spread its tentacles in its endeavour to gain complete control over everyone and everything, everywhere if we let them.
The nations of the world have finally twigged to its bullying tactics.
Australia was threatened "if we don't toe the line all hell will break loose - trade wise".
Now, Australian people and their leaders need to get fair dinkum and be on our mettle and start protecting those things that are rightfully ours instead of tearing them down as of late.
For far too long our governments have been crawling to China under the guise of trade agreements that pander to China.
Our leaders need to get some real ticker and start putting our nations' welfare first.
Quash the Paris agreement, a farce in itself and anything else our nation has been secretly signed onto without our knowledge or consent to do so via a referendum.
Millions gave their lives so that our nation might remain free lest we become complacent and forget.
China has even been allowed to infiltrate our universities peddling its communist propaganda
The left lovies are hell bent on destroying our Christian democracy and sovereignty and making our nation a communist regime ruled by the iron fist of a republican dictator.
Let's not forget the protesters over the there gunned down in that square fighting for freedom of speech and the thousands recently on the streets of Hong Kong fighting for their rightful Christian democracy.
How conveniently they were gotten rid of with a virus that appeared on the horizon and was allowed to escape and destroy thousands of lives worldwide that China pretends "wasn't its fault".
Time to get savvy and realise that this virus has taught us how fragile life can be and how easily it can be wiped out the evidence proven beyond a doubt.
