'Get off the grass!' Australian PM told to move on during stimulus announcementA media conference by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison to announce a new stimulus package briefly turned comical on Thursday when he and reporters were told by a homeowner to get off a newly reseeded lawn. Morrison travelled to a housing construction site in Googong, 28km (17 miles) south of Canberra to announce his government would spend nearly A$ 700 million ($ 480 million) to support an Australian construction sector hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. “Can everyone get off the grass please,” an unnamed local shouted at Morrison and the travelling press contingent.
