Australians ‘have to balance the budget’ amid rising retail turnover

Former House Speaker Bronwyn Bishop says Australians “need to start balancing the budget” after the ABS revealed a 1.6% rise in retail turnover for the month of March along with rising of inflation.

“I think we’ve seen a lot of people splash out because they’ve been locked up for two years and their freedoms have been restricted,” he told Sky News presenter Gary Hardgrave.

“I think the frustration of being in lockdown for so long has really caused those retail numbers to grow so much, as reported today.”
