Prime Minister (Nearly) Egged By Young Woman
A young protester has been wrestled away from Prime Minister Scott Morrison after attempting to egg him at a Country Women's Association event in Albury.
Footage has captured the moment the young woman in a red beanie with glasses threw the egg at Morrison.
However, the egg did not break on the back of his head and instead bounced off unbroken.
The woman was then removed by security and allegedly knocked over an elderly woman in her attempt to reach the Prime Minister.
The woman has said she's sorry that the elderly woman got caught up in the incident and was filmed being escorted from the area with a six-pack of eggs in her hand.
She allegedly stated to reporters that the attempted egging was a protest against the off-shore detention of refugees on Manus Island.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has Tweeted that his concern about the incident was "for the older lady who was knocked off her feet. I helped her up and gave her a hug."
Morrison said that the young woman represented the "same idiots" who were invading farms and homes in protest against Australian agriculture last month.
More to come.
