Minister for Sugar discovers horrible truth

Our Minister for Sugar was shocked to find out last week that cane farmers had been receiving less than $50 a tonne for cane. So who approved the payment in 2011 if it wasn’t him? Even $50 a tonne couldn’t have been paid without a Government guaranteed loan, so he must have approved it. Is he telling us someone is approving these things without telling him? He should know that $80 a tonne is the bare minimum to keep farmers producing cane, but he should also know that the badly run-down FSC can’t afford to pay it. Finally, he should know that he’s the one who ran FSC into the ground. He has been the Minister for Sugar since he sacked MPC.
