PM wants to censure Anning for NZ comments

PM wants to censure Anning for NZ comments

"(Anning's) conflation of this horrendous terrorist attack with issues of immigration, in his attack on Islamic faith specifically, these comments are appalling and they're ugly and they have no place in Australia", Australia's Prime Minister Morrison told journalists on Saturday.

In an anonymous letter published by The Guardian newspaper in the wake of the Christchurch attack, an Australian Muslim described her experience of abuse in stark terms.

The government also announced on Saturday it had banned right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos from touring the country over his social media response to the Christchurch shootings.

The senator responded by punching the teenager in the face before the youngster was then tackled to the ground by Anning's supporters and held in a chokehold.

"Police arrested a 17-year-old male from Hampton after he allegedly threw an egg at a 69-year-old Brisbane man at an address in Moorabbin this afternoon during a planned meeting", the statement said.

"The teen was removed from the premises and his details were taken before he was released", said the statement. Stating that he was opposed to "any form of violence", Anning claimed that the atrocity highlighted the "growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence", in both New Zealand and Australia.

American actress Chelsea Peretti tweeted: "why did egg boy vid make me cry".

The egging was nearly certainly in response to Anning's very bad statement to the New Zealand mosque shootings, which killed 49 people on Friday. A GoFundMe page has already raised more than $8,000 to pay for his legal fees and "more eggs", according to the post.

Senator Anning responded: "Well he's obviously a little on the insane side, but yeah".

CEO Sloan pitches Wells Fargo turnaround to bank critics in Congress
Sloan spoke as his bank remains under an unusual Federal Reserve measure imposed past year to restrict its growth. The bank has also shaken up its board of directors and improved wages and benefits for its workers, Sloan said.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison later denounced Anning's statements and vowed to censure the Queensland senator once lawmakers were back in session.

While Senator Anning ran on the One Nation ticket at the 2016 poll, he quit the party minutes before being sworn in after falling out with leader Pauline Hanson.

However, Scott Morrison went further today, when asked if a parliamentary motion was enough, saying: "I think the full force of the law should be applied to Senator Anning".
