Today’s Headlines

Good morning readers and welcome to a Friday morning dominated by the horrific terror attack in Barcelona, where at least 13 people have been confirmed killed after a van ploughed into a crowd in the Spanish city’s busy Las Ramblas district. Malcolm Turnbull is facing an ­escalating Labor attack over the ­stability of his government after a third cabinet minister, Nationals deputy leader and Regional Affairs Minister Fiona Nash, owned up to being a dual citizen by way of her father’s birth in Scotland . Dennis Shanahan concludes that the Turnbull government’s crisis of legitimacy has deepened. The PM, meantime, has launched an all-out parliamentary assault on ‘unaccountably shifty’ Bill Shorten’s personal integrity after revelations the Opposition Leader used union funds to advance his own political career. Muslim leaders are worried Pauline Hanson’s burka ‘stunt’ will encourage US-style white supremacist attacks, while Tony Abbott is ‘appalled’ by NSW Education attempts to reintroduce the Safe Schools program and a push is on to sideline Australia Day in preschools and childcare centres.
