‘I’m not going to pretend to you that I go out each day and I buy a loaf of bread and I buy a litre of milk,’ he admitted.

Minister Robert, a close ally of the PM, defended his boss on Wednesday morning, telling ABC radio that Morrison’s wife Jenny would know all those prices. 

‘From the Prime Minister’s point of view, if he’d sat there and Jen was with him, she’d be able to rattle off all the prices of all the things they buy and I’m sure they have that conversation often as all families do. My wife and I certainly do,’ he said.

The answer echoed Mr Morrison’s comment in early January that he didn’t know how many rapid tests he’d paid for because Jenny and his staff buy them for him. 

On Wednesday morning the Prime Minister was keen to prove that he had learned the price of bread and petrol and even joked about the varieties of bread and milk available to Australian shoppers. 

‘Prime Minister, do you know the cost of bread today,’ Today show host Ali Langdon asked in her morning interview.

‘Yeah, I do. Which one do you want? Do you want the rye bread or the multi grain or the sour dough,’ Mr Morrison replied. 

‘But honestly the gotcha stuff from gallery journalists, whatever. I was honest with people yesterday and they know that. 

‘Two bucks 60, thee bucks 40, a dollar 60, a dollar 80 a litre. That is what it is. But what matters is the economic policies and the plans that we have to keep putting downward pressure on the cost of living.’
