Q&A can’t get PM Scott Morrison but 7mate’s Outback Truckers has him, in a surprise Facetime call next week.
It happened after WA trucker, Glenn ‘Yogi’ Kendall, and his mate Peter Wright, were concerned at the plight of farmers in the NSW drought.
In just three weeks, the duo raised $100,000 in donated hay and feed and convinced seven other truckies to lend their time and trucks to deliver the hay to the farmers.
Ben MacGuire from the Australian Truckers Association, and also one of the truckers on the convoy, alerted the PM’s office which led to a Facetime call from ScoMo thanking the for their help.
“G’day Scott…. Mr. Morrison… what do I call you you?” asked Kendall.
“Call me whatever you like,” the PM replied.
“You can call me Yogi,” Kendall said.
The episode airs at 8:30pm next Tuesday on 7mate.
