Former Labor Leader Bill Shorten says the “clowns” and “sooks” at the protests were not “representative” of the vast majority of Melburnians.
“Melburnians have been really tough. I think most people have been adhering to the rules,” Mr Shorten told Sky News Australia.
“I wouldn’t want a view out of there that some of those protesters and sooks are representative of the vast majority of Melburnians.
“When these clowns ended up at the Shrine of Remembrance, carrying on, I think once they went to the Shrine they lost everyone in Melbourne.”
