‘WA has some glass jaws’: McGowan hits out at PM over ‘cave people’ remarks

Western Australia might have a lot of iron ore but "we have some glass jaws" specifically up in parliament house, according to Triple M Perth Breakfast host Jenna Clarke.

This follows a tweet by WA Premier Mark McGowan which hit out against PM Scott Morrison for allegedly making a comment which implied "Western Australians were like cave people", in reference to family film ‘The Croods’.

"Our notable ‘Perthonalities’ don’t like to be told what to do by those east coasters," Ms Clarke said.

"I have to say to the prime minister, where’s the lie? It’s true we’ve been enjoying living in this cave for the last 18 months now and it’s time to start living with COVID – let’s get vaccinated and let’s get this show on the road."
