Scott Morrison says 'we're not governing with Clive Palmer'

Australia's opposition Labor lead over government slips ahead of election: poll

Mr Johnson asked to laughter from the crowd on Wednesday.

"We've home grown talent like Sam Kerr lighting up the field and inspiring the next generation of players, so it's only right that we've got the facilities to support this growth", he said.

Labor has focused on its plans to boost spending on education, health and welfare, promising on Sunday A$4 billion (£2.1 billion) in childcare subsidies to a million low-income families and free dental care, worth A$2.4 billion, for the aged.

Mr Morrison has been campaigning in key Perth seats the coalition needs to hold onto, as well as targeting Labor MP Anne Aly's seat of Cowan, which has a margin of 0.7 per cent.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his influential backers in the media have tried to paint the opposition leader as an untrustworthy, tax-and-spend politician.

"This government's economic record is pretty bloody hopeless".

Kentucky Derby favorite Omaha Beach ruled out with throat condition
Omaha Beach was scheduled to come out of Gate 12, which hasn't sent off a victor since 1971, when Canonero II won from No. 12. Omaha Beach - the early betting favorite at 4-1 - has been scratched from Saturday's race, according to multiple reports.

Mr Shorten will be in Adelaide on Wednesday to announce the Spencer Gulf as a renewable energy zone, which will see it benefit from a $5 billion Labor fund.

Ian Johnson from South Fremantle waved a collection of newspaper clippings and asked Mr Morrison to beat Labor leader Bill Shorten.

"UAP claims Chinese ownership of Australian infrastructure is part of a military plan to take over Australia and that Labor has a secret plan to force five million people into unemployment".

Clive Palmer's United Australia Party is "surfing the rather odious wave of fake news" as it makes serious inroads into the Liberal and National Party vote, a leading political analyst says.

The Coalition has previously been criticised for its promise to preference Pauline Hanson's One Nation below Labor.

Mr Hastie originally refused to answer questions about it on Tuesday, before saying he was "confident" he had not met the activist.
