Last week, Acting PM Michael McCormack managed the tricky feat of making the absent Scott Morrison look good, at least by comparison. Perhaps that's now the Nationals' role in the Canberra circus?

Nigel Dornan, Mullumbimby

The Australian economy is performing better than any country in the world. The economy exists within the environment. If there is no environment, there is no economy.

Josh Frydenberg did not mention the environment once in his budget speech to Parliament. I wonder what his children and their children will think of his performance?  

I wonder what the environment thinks, while it warms and the ice melts?

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Nigel, you mean Frydenberg is only telling us that the economy is outperforming other economies in the world, that could be vastly different to the real truth; the only area this Morrison Govt. usually outperforms comparable countries in, is marketing spin otherwise known as bullshit; they can’t handle the truth.

    • Like the continuing BS that Fraudenberg and ScamMO spit out that they brought the Budget back to balance! Rollback to Budget night 2018 and Mr Joshingusall Fraudenberg declared that “the Budget is back in the black and Australia is back on track”. Except of course that the final number for 2018-19 showed that the Budget was in deficit by $700millions – NO surplus was delivered as promised a year earlier by Joshingusall Fraudenberg and not balanced either. When will the journalists do their job and interrogate The LIEberals.
