‘Ultimate populist move’: South Australia’s bid for footy festival

Sky News contributor Daisy Cousens says South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas’ bid to create a footy festival is the “ultimate populist move”.

Ms Cousens said it was a “genius powerplay” by Mr Malinauskas.

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