It is now clear that the Prime Minister’s February drought tour was more about stopping the political bleeding than helping drought affected farming families.
The pictures looked good but 3 months on, farmers are still waiting for farm finance assistance to be delivered.
The promised $280 million concessional loans sounded big, but not a cent has flowed to farmers.
Farmers were led to believe in February that additional drought assistance was imminent. They were deceived.
Another day, another broken promise and another act of deceit.
The victims this time are our farmers, their families and the rural communities which rely on a healthy farm sector.
Now Barnaby Joyce says he’ll have something to say in "early June". If that doesn't happen, he should consider his position.
