Farm lobby at odds over Nats’ allegiance

WESTERN Australia’s two farming groups are at odds over the future of the National Party, with one urging Nationals leader Brendon Grylls to stick to his independent guns while the other has called for a Liberal coalition. The WA Farmers Federation has urged Mr Grylls to stay independent if families living in the state’s regional areas are to have “any chance in the future”. Meanwhile, the Pastoralists and Graziers’ Association said if the Nationals were to side with the Labor Party, it would be betraying the interests of rural WA. The positions reflect not only the differences between the free-market PGA and the protectionist WA Farmers, but also the chasm that may exist between the traditional Nationals farming supporters and new regional voters more reliant on incomes from the mining or services sector
