Today’s breaking news from South Australia, the nation and abroad. The State Government says two new COVID vaccination hubs will be opened at Noarlunga and Elizabeth by June, pending the supply of Pfizer vaccines from the federal government.
Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas says it was “the right thing to do” to refer his former factional colleague Annabel Digance to SA Police, as she and her husband Greg were today bailed after facing court charged with blackmailing him.
The husband of former state Labor MP Annabel Digance has been accused of taunting her electoral opponent Carolyn Habib, allegedly telling her ‘we are going to break you again’ – four years after the ALP distributed a widely-condemned leaflet attacking the Liberal candidate.
Former Labor MP Annabel Digance’s attempt to paint herself as a victim – and her failure to call out racism as a symptom of systemic sexism in politics – is an affront to the courage of women trying to change that culture, writes Tom Richardson.
