The Australian Labor Party’s ‘mean girls’ saga has plagued Leader Anthony Albanese, as both the Morrison MPs and Murdoch newspapers pounce on the opportunity to highlight chinks in the armour of what appears to be the most polished Opposition in recent memory.
As Scotty From Marketing continues to poll worse than any Liberal Prime Minister since the Vietnam War, the only punch that seems to be landing on his Federal Opposition is the overreaching allegations that senior ALP members have been saying mean things about one another.
However, after a year of seeing the Prime Minister roasted for the petty in-fighting and blatant misogyny within his cabinet – the fact remains, voters will see Labor hypocrites if they refuse to address these very real allegations of factional bullying.
In fact, this bombshell news story that has been dominating headlines for the last week could easily be enough to derail Albanese’s chances of getting elected at the 2022- Australian tennis star Ash Barty has announced her retirement from tennis.
The 25-year-old has made the announcement via her Instagram account, a devastating announcement for Australian sport and one that has gone viral within minutes.
“I’ve given absolutely everything I can to this beautiful sport of tennis and I’m really happy with that.” she said, as fans right across Australia mourn her premature exit from the game”
The outpouring of messages from tennis icons has been quick, as newsrooms around Australia immediately stop what they are doing to begin formulating highlight reels that showcase the supreme talent of our titan of world tennis.
“Happy for @ashbarty gutted for tennis 🎾 what a player❤️” tweeted Scottish superstar, Andy Murray, minutes ago.
The news of Ash Barty’s retirement, and subsequent wave of tributes, is expecting to be the leading news story across all newspapers and television stations for the next week – until it is then replaced by the coverage of the late cricketing great Shane Warne’s state funeral.
