'This isn’t the last drought announcement by Scott Morrison'


The Australian's political editor Andrew Clennell says if the drought doesn't break soon then “this isn’t the last drought announcement by Scott Morrison”. A new lifeline is being offered to farmers struggling through the crippling drought, with the government poised to announce at least $300 million in additional funding. Farmers will be offered interest-free loans as part of the Morrison government's long-awaited $1 billion bush stimulus package. Mr Clennell told Sky News the prime minister has managed to find a way to at least “please most of the Nationals for a little while, maybe a month, but then we will see it all fired up again”. “Until you get rain people aren’t going to be happy still unfortunately for Scott Morrison,” he said.
