Water terrorists

Oh, get a fucking sense of perspective will you. Wrong, maybe. Selfish, probably. But it's not like blowing people up. Bali was terrorism, 7/7 was terrorism, September 11th was terrorism, Madrid, the Ulster campaign... see where we're going here? If a farmer illegally drawing extra water from the Murray is a terrorist what does that make the shops and consumers who buy the produce? Are we sponsors of terrorism? Co-conspirators? Accessories after the fact? Bollocks! Whatever it is (and I'm certainly not defending it) it's not bloody terrorism and if I'd lost someone in a real terrorist attack I'd be pretty pissed off that Mike Rann equates illegal irrigation with mass murder.
