Aims

To comment on 2006 - the year that was.

Key messages

2006 can best be described as the year in which drought, water, climate change, the resources boom and the Cole Inquiry into AWB Limited dominated the headlines of our newspapers across the nation. I cannot remember a period in our history when rural issues dominated the minds of the nation to such an extent. As we know, attention from the press usually means that rural people are doing it tough.
