‘Ultimate populist decision’: South Australia’s bid for a football festival

Sky News contributor Daisy Cousens said South Australian Prime Minister Peter Malinauskas’ bid to create a footy festival is the “ultimate populist decision”.

Ms Cousens said it was a ‘genius power play’ by Mr Malinauskas.

“I mean what better way politically to make yourself popular as a leader than to bring all the stuff into the state,” she told Sky News Australia.
