BOWEN () (): My question as to the Prime Minister. After the recent devastating floods, New South Wales Nationals MP Geoff Provest said,

there's a real venom out there directed at the prime minister that he doesn't understand what's occurring on the ground. This is like a remake of the bushfires some two years ago.

You just have to drive around the area to talk to the people to see they've lost everything.

The federal government is disconnected with the good people of Australia and we're paying the price for it here … I think they should hang their heads in shame.

As New South Wales suffers more serious flooding, why does the Prime Minister always do too little, too late?
