Letter: Regional MPs helpless

The care and concern and what is offered to drought-stricken farmers shows how out of touch and disconnected poltics is for regional Australia.

It also shows how little impact and weight regional MPs have.

Farmers matter and their towns and people matter. The money spent on city highways and

freeways and infrastructure to try and cope with city congestion should come from a levy on suburban and city dwellers. Real money needs to flow into regional needs.
