The Senator taking on Maccas to get us the Milo McFlurry

A TURNBULL Government minister with a well documented love of Milo is now petitioning McDonald's to introduce the "Milo McFlurry".

Queensland Senator James McGrath, who is also the Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister, has written to the fast food giant to lobby for "this very Australian dessert" to be added to its menu.

The senator took up the fight after McDonald's Malaysia announced it would reintroduce the Milo McFlurry and McDonald's Australia confirmed it had no plans to introduce the dessert locally.

On an official government letterhead, he addressed to McDonald's Australia managing director Andrew Gregory, he put a texter through his name Mr Gregory and wrote 'Andrew' to make it more personal.

In the letter, he wrote: "In Australia, we can have Oreos and M&M's minis in our McFlurry, and now Cadbury Cream Eggs - but not Milo?"

"On behalf of all the Milo lovers across the country, it would be remiss of me not to raise an objection to this decision," he wrote.

Senator McGrath - one of the Prime Minister's trusted numbers men - asked that McDonald's Australia reconsider its position on what was one of "the greatest Australian inventions of all time".

"Actually, I beg you in the name of Milo and all that is good, sweet and healthy in our wide, brown land. Please."
