A bit like the guy who threw a milk shake in Tommy Robinson's face has become the victim of the attack.
Yep. Praised by MSM. That's why these idiots do it. Want their 5 mins and history shows they're more likely to get applauded for it.

Morrison might have got some applause if he told her to go home to mommy and said that her mum would be voting for him.

She missed....
Point proven.
Doesn’t make a lot of sense how the egg didn’t break to me. The video suggests it glances off his head. Did it smash on the ground?

If not it was boiled. Which in itself puts this is in a different ball game to Egg Boy.

South Wales Police even going so far as using there official twitter account to ‘like’ a story on the attack according to this video posted by Tommy’s MEP election campaign.

If true that tells you how hypocritical things have really gotten over there, given UK police are now knocking on people’s doors over social media comments and likes etc

17 year old boy smashes an egg over a politician that 95 percent of the country believe should not be in parliament at all, and gets tackled down by a group of racist thugs who are also overwhelmingly loathed. Gets a mixture of congratulations and head shakes as a result.

25 year old hipster girl throws an egg at a politician that at least 45 percent of the population, maybe at least 50 percent want as prime minister. She is stupid enough to carry illegal drugs with her and she has a smug holier than thou attitude. Gets an easily majority head shaking reaction.

I can understand the difference in reactions.

Nah, like the snake that he is, he instinctively saw an opportunity to milk political gain out of it, by playing to his base by deliberately milking the hell out of the optics of him comforting the old lady that was bowled over in the failed egg attack.

Absolutely. The justification in the different reactions is clear. Scomo, while he may have his detractors and does drift further to the right, is not a far-right figure espousing anti-Islam rhetoric immediately after Christchurch.

The problem with the public, media and the police condoning an attack against a less prominent but more vitriolic figure, however, is that inevitably some members of the public (such as this girl) will see that as an indication that attacks on political figures they don't agree with is a good idea, will lead to public applause and result in few repercussions.

If not supportive of the timing of its release and its sledgehammer bluntness, you truly believe 95% of Australian’s were opposed to the general sentiment contained in Anning’s post Christchurch press release?

Well, it fell into his lap. Campaign politicking 101 to seize upon it.

So much snark. So little actual engagement.

Okay, do you have the physical specs of the crime weapon?

I am going to need thicknesses, spherical calculations, and CaCO3 matrix analysis.

I have a team of analytical chemists and engineers on standby.

Clearly not.

Begs the question though. If she was charged, why wasn’t Eggboy?

For me, if it’s purely on fact she went after the PM, that ought to be irrelevant.

There shouldn’t be some sliding scale for attacks on politicians....Fraser Anning...yeah don’t like him, no charge....Scott Morrison yeah he is PM it’s a charge. Surely same offence ought to equal same outcome and politics should have nothing to do with it?.
Egg boy was/is a minor, in a different jurisdiction, got whacked and wrestled to the ground, didn't hurt an old lady in the process and wasn't found with drugs. Think that accounts for the difference

You think it’s appropriate for English police departments social media accounts to ‘like’ stories on attacks on political candidates? Let alone ones sourced from sites called footballfightsuk.com
"according to this video posted by Tommy’s MEP election campaign "

Where is this heinous like?
