The Agricultural visa is now the zombie visa.
On Saturday the PM declared it dead. But in Question Time today, he appeared to promise its resurrection.
The clock is ticking and the workforce shortage in the ag sector has been exacerbated by Scott Morrison’s backpacker tax.
In August the Deputy PM said he would like to see the policy “sorted within weeks, not months.”
His predecessor Barnaby Joyce says “there’s no such things as dead in politics.” But we’re not sure whether he’s talking about the visa or himself.
It’s clear the internal divisions in the Coalition are why Morrison’s Muppet Show has failed to develop a policy to address agricultural labour market shortages.
This chaos and confusion is hurting our farmers.
