I am a bit confused by the title. Do you agree or disagree with the argument that the water buyback is NOT a good idea?

As my old mate Barnaby said It is wrong for people to think of the Murray Darling System as a pipe, if you pour in a glass of water at Toowoomba, doesn't mean to say you will get a glass of water out at the Murray Mouth. Barnaby describes it more like an old dusty piece of carpet, you can stand on one corner and pour a bucket of water on it and your mate standing on the opposite corner may or may not get his feet wet.

ok, I know where you are coming from now :)
I hadn't thought about the buyback being a bad thing in anyway, but I guess like the article says, it all depends on how it is being used, and if used well then the water needed will reduce over time (theoretically).
maybe forcing properties to change their practices or lose their allocation would be better?
