Kerri-Anne Kennerley slams Bill Shorten: "It's the end of life as we know it"

One thing I'm seriously outraged about, the millions and millions they'll spend on a Gender Commission.

Kerri-Anne Kennerley has slammed opposition leader Bill Shorten in a scathing attack on Studio Ten.
The veteran TV host did not hold back at all, saying, "If Bill Shorten gets in, it's the end of life as we know it."
Kerri-Anne's comments shocked her fellow panellist, with host Sarah Harris even exclaiming: "Tell us what you really think!",
The 64-year-old slammed the Labor party's plan to set up a taxpayer-funded Gender Centre to support transgender people.
"One thing I'm seriously outraged about, the millions and millions they'll spend on a Gender Commission," she said.
"These kids out there who are gender confused, and there's a percentage of people out there gender confused, they will put up this Commission and we, like Tasmania, will have a child and it won't be male or female, it will be gender-free."
Later, she revealed that the Labor party had emailed her, accusing her of spreading "fake news".
"Earlier this morning, Kerri-Anne... fake news on your program, Labor spending 'millions and millions' to set up a Gender Commission," the email read.
"Standing corrected", the TV host then added: "Apparently they're not spending millions and millions, because they haven't costed it yet."

Then she took aim at Shorten's plan to remove tax breaks for property investors.
"He'll put in negative gearing... no more investment into houses so your rent will go up," she said.
The most shocking proclamation of all came when Kennerley attacked the party's plan to reduce the cost of cancer care, calling it "all smoke and mirrors".
"Throwing money at cancer is just feeding the chooks," she said.
"Don't believe it. Dig a little deeper. Just dig a little deeper.
"Anybody who believes they'll be better off if Shorten and the Greens get in is under some whoopy-do cloud. It will never, ever happen. You will tank."
