Agriculture Minister David Littleproud visits Shepparton only mentioning climate change when pressed
October 31, 2018 Robert McLean/David Littleproud/Damian Drum

Australia's Agriculture Minister David Littleproud visited Shepparton today to what was described as a "town-hall meeting". Some 150 people gathered at the Eastbank centre to hear the Minister who had been invited to speak by the Member for Murray, Damian Drum.
The Minister obviously had no intention of even mentioning climate change until one fellow in the audience raised the matter and then rushing for cover that most politicians always seek, Mr Littleproud quickly diverted to conversation by giving an answer that had no relevance to the original question.
Mr Littleproud, and his parliamentary counterpart, Damian Drum are obviously so bound by government ideology and so locked into the myths that drive its present policies that they are unable to even talk about that Australia, and the rest of the world is facing a climate emergency.
