After asking for a favor from the former Prime Minister’s wife, Jenny Morrison, a woman whose home was damaged in the NSW floods has revealed that she has been staying at their Sutherland Shire property since.
Nikki Durant, a pool cleaner, had previously worked at Morrisons’ house and had met Jenny only on a few occasions.
When devastating floods hit her Woodburn home in the Northern Rivers, she felt she had nowhere to turn.
Despite having only met Mrs. Morrison a few times, she decided to phone Jenny.
“I panicked and called Jenny and said ‘help: I’ve lost my house in the flood and have nowhere to live’. I asked if I could stay, because I didn’t know what else to do,” Ms Durant, 50, told the Sydney Morning Herald.
Mrs. Morrison told her that she and her family could stay at their home in the Sutherland Shire until late May when the election took place.
“She basically said: ‘well, you have until towards the end of May, which is election time’,” Ms. Durant said.
Despite not meeting the former prime minister in person, she feels he still deserved a chance at the top job and believed he earned it.
Unfortunately, due to the Labors win, she will have to move away from the Sutherland Shire due to the Morrison family’s return.
“But I didn’t want him to win just because I’m here in his house, I actually really like the guy. I thought he deserved another go without so much to deal with,” Ms. Durant said.
