Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison had a lucky escape after a protester tried and failed to crack an egg on his head.

The 24-year-old protester hit the top of Mr Morrison’s head with the egg, but it bounced off.

The protester, Amber Holt, was carried outside and later charged with common assault and possession of cannabis. The egg was later picked up by ABC journalist Dan Conifer.

He said on Twitter that “it didn’t seem to have been boiled”.

The ensuing commotion after the egg was thrown caused a 70-year-old woman to be knocked to the floor.

Morrison helped Margaret Baxter to her feet and she said she was “very grateful” for his assistance.

Baxter later said she had been knocked over, and that she landed on her hip – but was not injured.

The protest comes a week before an Australian general election, and Morrison called for more civility in the campaign.

“Pardon the pun, but I don’t want to over-egg this thing,” he said. “At the same time, what my concern was, for Margaret and the disregard the individual seemed to have for those others who were in the room.”

“We will stand up to thuggery whether it’s these cowardly activists who have no respect for anyone, or militant unionists standing over small businesses and their employees on work sites,” Mr Morrison later tweeted.AP/PA Images

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
