As we no longer owe farmers a living they can work out how best to get their product to market. If they have to receive the benefit of subsidised freight rates to stay in business it is not in the taxpayers interest to continue funding their life style when grain etc can be grown in other areas at no cost to the tax payer.
Where do you think the majority of the 4000 tons of food comes from that Melbourne consumes per day (and with the supermarkets squeezing the farmers for all they can). As I said in a previous post the city and the country do NOT exist in isolation.
There would be plenty of people who would LOVE to know where one could grow grain without problems. It would be safe to say all areas that can grow grain currently are growing grain.
If the rural areas disappeared tomorrow Melbourne would be depopulated within a year.
Just ignore it mate its nothing more than a high order troll.
