Brad Hazzard defends scathing attack on Mark Latham
NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard has defended his seething verbal attack on NSW One Nation leader Mark Latham.
A parliamentary hearing has turned heated, as Mr Latham sought to ask questions about a close contact issue during the Covid pandemic.
Brad Hazzard’s responded by attacking Mr Latham for using Parliamentary privilege to make claims about Labor MP Anna Watson.
“He has a history of bullying, mate my lord, go back to 2003 he broke a taxi driver’s arm!” Minister Hazzard said.
Minister Hazzard told Jim Wilson there is a “long long history” of Mark that he needed to express.
Jim Wilson: “Has this been simmering away for a while minister because it came across as someone who finally reached the end of their tether?”
Brad Hazzard: “I think that’s a fair comment.”
