Just days after putting his finger on the trigger of a double dissolution election, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull enjoyed a somewhat low-key visit to the Shoalhaven on Thursday. 

“There’s never been a more exciting time to be in the Shoalhaven,” Mr Turnbull told a press conference during the morning. 

However, some people would have questioned that excitement.

Among them, the dozen or so who gathered outside the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre to rally for a “better Gilmore future” and plea for help to curb the region’s high youth unemployment rate.

The placard-holding group were left angry when Mr Turnbull used a back door to enter the centre and attend a Liberal Party luncheon.

“Shame Malcolm, shame,” they repeatedly chanted at the front door. 

“The real crisis in this area is the youth unemployment, 18.4 per cent; that’s an absolute tragedy, it’s a disgrace and we want to know what this Prime Minister and the Member for Gilmore have in store,” Unions Shoalhaven chairman Tim Montgomery said.
