Australia news live updates: more than 7,000 serious incidents in disability homes; Wallabies coach Dave Rennie sacked

LIVE – Updated at 23:33 Follow live.   23:33 Michael McGowan Dominic Perrottet has launched a stinging attack against the former New

South Wales premier Bob Carr, blaming the former Labor leader for putting “pokies on every street corner” in the state. After Carr labelled Perrottet “unelectable” in the

wake of the revelation he wore a Nazi uniform to his 21st birthday, the NSW premier hit back on Monday, saying he “won’t be taking lectures” from the former Labor premier. He

said: He opened it up. We have more pokie machines in NSW than anywhere outside of Nevada and who was responsible for that? The Bob Carr Labor government and we are

still cleaning up that mess. Perrottet has staked his reputation on taking on the powerful clubs lobby in the lead up to the March state election in NSW, while also

facing opposition from Labor and in his own cabinet room, to be able to introduce a cashless gaming card in the state. Despite having yet to outline details of the

policy, on Monday he reiterated that the “destination” was cashless gambling. He said: I’m working through finalising the policy [but] the policy, I’ve made it very

clear, is cashless gaming in New South Wales. Perrottet will hope his criticism of Carr - he also said the former Labor premier’s gambling reforms had “created

significant problems across our state” - will push attention back onto Labor and its lukewarm approach to gambling reform.
