‘It’s absolute garbage’: Shadow AG responds to anti-vax barbs from Mark McGowan

Shadow Attorney-General Nick Goiran has responded to claims made by Premier Mark McGowan that he is helping anti-vaxxers, saying they’re “absolute garbage”.

It comes as the Premier told parliament on Tuesday that Mr Goiran is undermining the health of the state for questioning vaccination mandates.

But Mr Goiran told Liam Bartlett on 6PR Mornings he’s always been pro-vaccination.

“It was quite an extraordinary tantrum thrown by the Premier yesterday,” he said.

“It’s absolutely garbage Liam, I’ve consistently been pro-vaccination but anti-dictatorship.

“The genesis of this tantrum yesterday by the Premier yesterday began two weeks ago.

“He wanted to issue an edict to members of parliament, I said in my capacity as Shadow Attorney-General that he couldn’t do that, that I wouldn’t be bullied.

“… He then received advice confirming he couldn’t do that.

“Now, I acknowledge that he is agitated about that, but it is beyond time that he remembered that he can’t ignore the rule of law.

“It applies to him, it applies to me, and it applies to every Western Australian.”
