The more than 100 protesters who opposed coronavirus lockdown measures, despite warnings from Victorian police earlier this week to stay home.

Colourful billionaire Clive Palmer who after being refused entry into Western Australia is threatening a High Court challenge to the state’s strict state border closure.

The Federal Government for changes which will allow the regulation of new chemicals entering the Australian marketplace to be left in the hands of private industry from next week, as a major overhaul of chemical regulation takes effect.
