I sat through yesterday's COAG press conference and want to comment on one of the "outcomes" -- water. The other COAG agendas are for others to judge.

For me yesterday’s COAG was a test of whether our Federation is capable of managing Australia’s water resources. They failed again. Once again there was an historic agreement on water reform at this COAG. Instead of accelerating water reform all Australia got from was yet another agreement to yet another plan to fix the Murray Darling Basin.
