Paparazzo's run-in with a shovel. Controversial paparazzo Jayden Seyfarth has become the story (again), with cricketer David Warner's brother-in-law charged with attacking Seyfarth's car with a shovel. Seyfarth was parked outside Warner's family home when Tim Falzon allegedly smashed his windscreen with a shovel. Seyfarth told Seven he was shaken up by the attack.

    I think the header should refer to cricketer Steve’s brother, Mark Warner.

    “…showing up to work while under the influence of cannabis — claims Moses denied. In a joint statement…”

    An amusing choice of words.

    Just got back from Nicaragua (to home base in San Salvador) and following events there closely. The report(s) from The Guardian’s Managua correspondent are disappointing to say the least. The journalist shot was one working for Sandinista media, and was targeted by the right wing demonstrators some of whom come to the demonstrations armed. (Disturbing video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZQvwIb0GUU&feature=youtu.be).
    Only fleeting mention of the issue that triggered the demonstration – reforms to the social security and pension laws. The Sandinista government is still open to negotiate with COSEP, the business council who walked out of the talks a week ago. The Sandinistas proposed free medical services and procedures for pensioners (including complex ones like hip replacements) to be covered by a 5% impost on the pension and raising employer contributions to the pension fund to 3%. The business council wanted to raise the retirement age by 5 years and to privatise the clinics. Many of the demonstrators seem to be unaware of these issues. Daniel Ortega won a clean Presidential election in 2016 with a 70% vote. The current disturbances are viewed from within Nicaragua as an attempt to destabilise and delegitimise the government as was attempted in Venezuela some years ago, with armed and violent right wing opposition groups. Observers expect the current situation to calm down over the next few days.
