Tasmanian MP will be ‘ostracised’ for taking COVID pay cut: MacSween

Social commentator Prue MacSween says Liberal MP Felix Ellis will be "ostracised" after vowing to take a pay cut if Tasmania goes into lockdown.

Mr Ellis announced he would donate 20 per cent of his income to Tasmanians in need if the state were to be forced into COVID-19 restrictions.

“Could you imagine the pressure on this dude? He is going to be ostracised,” Ms MacSween told Sky News host Chris Smith.

“He ain’t going to be having a nice weekend is he, let’s face it.”
