Toddler used as ‘political pawn’ in dangerous anti-logging protest

A toddler used as a “political pawn” for an anti-logging protest in Gippsland Victoria shows the parent is more concerned with “political points” than the “welfare” of their own child, according to Liberal Senator Jonathon Duniam.

“It’s sad to be talking about this in 2021 where you got mums and dads using their kids as political pawns,” he told Sky news host Rita Panahi.

“An infant, a toddler, walking around a dangerous worksite where you got big moving machinery, spinning blades, trees falling on the ground; what kind of a parent does that … someone who’s more interested in scoring a political point than the welfare of their own child.”
