Scott Morrison answers Squiz Kids tough questions

The old adage that you should never work with children or animals has been put to rest by Scott Morrison – at least the kids part anyway.

The prime minister agreed to be interviewed by Squiz Kids on Sunday, a daily podcast designed for eight to 12 year olds where children ask the questions about current events.

But whatever your age, if you are a bit unsure what is going on during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s worth a listen on

The questions ranged from whether students will have to resit this year’s schooling because of the disruptions from the virus crises to whether the supermarkets will run out of food.

The answer to the questions from Spencer and Claude was no.

Mr Morrison told Eva that a new vaccine for COVID-19 would normally take 12 to 18 months, but with many scientists working on one it could be sooner, while Max was told things are looking brighter for farmers.

The prime minister was queried by Archie as to when he can go camping again after missing out due to COVID-19 restrictions over Easter while Claudia asked a heartwarming question as to when she can have a granny back.

The final series of questions went to Harriet who asked whether he liked being called ScoMo, how hard is it to be prime minister and how does this affect his family?

“I’m doing ok, and I’m quite happy to be called ScoMo,” the prime minister replied.

He said he had a lovely family and two little girls that are probably the same age as the kids on the podcast.

“We’re all together as a family at this time and that helps us get through all of this … and when I get a hug from my daughters at night or in the morning, that helps me do my job every day,” he said.
