Hammer meet nail head. To much money for those involved with agriculture and those in power for any change to happen. And probably a touch of corruption thrown in for good measure. The Darling in particular has been mismanaged for decades on both state and federal level with the blame usually always falling to a drought, or a run off, or basically anything other than those in charge of managing the system whilst the greater basin region slowly dies one event at a time.
The rich getting richer, the poor get the picture.
