Littleproud slams MacTiernan for ‘abhorrent’ FMD comments

Pressure is mounting on Mark McGowan to give Alannah MacTiernan the boot over her divisive foot-and-mouth disease comments, with a Federal MP saying she “is a danger to not just WA agriculture” but the whole State.

Nationals leader David Littleproud is the latest politician to call for the WA Agriculture and Food Minister to be sacked after she claimed an outbreak of foot-and-mouth would result in cheaper meat and milk for Australians.

Ms MacTiernan’s remarks have offended farmers and her agriculture counterparts across the country.

“Alannah MacTiernan’s comments are the most abhorrent I’ve heard from an Australian agriculture minister,” Mr Littleproud, the Federal shadow agriculture minister, told The West Australian.
