PM Albanese ‘palmed’ Alice Springs crisis to Dorelle Anderson

Sky News host Amanda Stoker says Prime Minister Anthony Albanese “palmed” the Alice Springs crisis to central Australian regional controller Dorelle Anderson instead of “walking hand-in-hand” with the community. “Instead of being present and walking hand-in-hand with everybody in that community to get to the bottom of these long-standing problems, he has instead palmed it off to Dorelle Anderson,” she told Sky News host Chris Kenny. “Who has whipped up a report without talking to the police association, without talking to the Chamber of Commerce, without talking to the Mayor … and without talking to the local Aboriginal Congress. “Now by any measure, Ms Anderson cannot do the job that is required of her in a way that is connected to the needs of that community without talking to people on the ground.”

Striking Teachers March Through Central London on ‘Walkout Wednesday’

A large crowd of teachers marched through London’s Oxford Circus on February 1, as thousands of teachers, train and bus drivers, and civil servants carried out strikes on what has been dubbed “Walkout Wednesday”. The National Education Union (NEU) cited “a decade of falling pay…a crisis of recruitment and retention within the school system” as reasons for the strike. One in four teachers leave the profession within two years of qualifying, and a third within five years, the NEU said. In a video message, UK Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said the government was “working hard to minimize the impact of strike action on children.” Keegan said she had met the unions many times and was “hugely disappointed” that they had decided to take strike action. Up to half a million workers had been expected to strike on Wednesday. Credit: Alfie Tobutt via Storyful
