“Declare this drought a national disaster”: Alan Jones calls on Turnbull government to act
Alan Jones has issued a call to Malcolm Turnbull and the Federal Government to act on the drought currently facing Australia.
2GB‘s Jones recently visited Beltrees in the Hunter Valley of NSW, seeing first hand what farmers and their animals are experiencing.
Now he’s put out a call to action.
“Look in all my years, and it’s now 33 in radio, I have rarely done this,” said Jones.
“The Turnbull government… has to today declare this drought a national disaster.
“Forgive the language but in the language of my old man, will someone get off their arse and do something.”
He went on to call for similar measures to when Cyclone Larry hit Queensland in March 2006, for the government to apply similar resources to the issue.
