Scare puts PM's security in spotlight

SECURITY arrangements for Malcolm Turnbull's major economic speech in Melbourne yesterday were slammed after a protester managed to get on stage and stand beside the Prime Minister.

Seven protesters were forcibly removed after leaving their tables as the speech began and chanting slogans demanding the closure of Nauru and Manus Island refugee camps. Former NSW premier Kristina Keneally told Sky News: "You have to think what type of security assessment was done? It's lucky she's holding a poster, not a gun.”
