Media Release - Who Does Scott Morrison Think He Is Fooling? - Friday, 27 September 2019

Farmers and drought stricken rural communities will be disappointed by the Prime Minister’s latest inadequate drought announcement.
 

Farmers and drought stricken rural communities will be disappointed by the Prime Minister’s latest inadequate drought announcement.
 
It’s far too little too late. It’s a band aid approach which missed the mark.
 
The Prime Minister insults farmers and rural communities every time he talks about his “$7 billion” drought package because they know that it’s a fiction.  There is no $7 billion package, the farmers know that so who does he think he’s fooling?
 
The test for the Prime Minister today was:-
 
1. To admit the Government’s ad hoc and delayed response over 6 years has failed our farmers;
 
2. To demonstrate he now understands that more strategic and comprehensive policy is needed;
 
3. To release the report of the Drought Coordinator, Major General Stephen Day; and
 
4. To commit to not taking Farm Household Allowance off farming families who have been on the payment for 4 years.
 
Scott Morrison failed every test today.  Our farmers and rural communities remain his forgotten people.

    Unfortunately, the Australian people (Queensland majority) voted these morons back into power. Even after all their shenanigans prior to the elections. The farmers have been betrayed by their own party. Nation Party is just lapdogs for the Liberal. They should be breaking their necks to help every farmer everywhere, instead, they sit on their hands in the shadows.
    The Labor faithful now hold the Labor Leaders in contempt for losing the winnable election. The labor hierarchy better comes up with some magnificent plan to rescue Australia. Unfortunately, I can’t see that happening.
    With no major opposition, the LNP is going to skip along doing whatever they like and we just have to stomach the consequences.
    There is even a good chance the Queensland State Labor Government will also lose the next state election.
    Anarchy will rule and a small percentage of Australians will benefit tremendously while the rest of us have to buckle under the pressure and tolerate the immense pain and suffering of policies that screw the average person for everything they have.
    Keep them slaves to debt and they will never have the energy or time to revolt.
    Sad days ahead.
