Farrer's fury: in rural NSW, voters' anger over water is at boiling point – video

Gabrielle Chan visits the electorate of Farrer, which stretches from Wentworth in the west of the state to Albury in the east and covers around 126,000 square kilometres.

The sitting member, Sussan Ley, is on a 20% margin but is facing a strong challenge from Kevin Mack, the Albury mayor.

The issue setting Farrer alight is water.

Deniliquin businessman Harold Clapham says the Murray-Darling basin plan has had a disastrous effect on the community.

Farmer Brett Napier says he has no confidence in politicians.

'There's a lot of anger, frustration, depression, it is just rife at the moment.

Everything is on a downward spiral and nothing's being done about it politically... Both major parties have just shown total neglect to our region.'
