Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan has had to flee anti-vax protestors who swarmed around him just a day after his staff received rape threats.
After he made it to his car, protestors started banging on the windows and one of them shouted that Mr McGowan was a ‘f***ing coward’.
As the Premier made his way to the car, he was confronted by an agitated and loud group of anti-vaxxers determined to have their say.
Mr McGowan – who was last week at the centre of an alleged plot to dump a tank outside his office – had earlier accused Scott Morrison of using ‘weasel words’ and pandering to anti-vaxxers.
