MP intends to bow out
NICOLLE Flint has slammed Canberra’s toxic culture in announcing she will not recontest the South Australian seat of Boothby at the next election.
Ms Flint is understood to have made the decision in part because of the events of the past two weeks which followed Liberal staffer Brittany Higgins allegations she was raped at Parliament House.
Ms Flint also told The Australian she was fed up with the pressure of political life.
The past month has not been pleasant for Ms Flint, whose office was defaced by climate activists on February 8.
