Kennedy MP Bob Katter has lashed out at COVID rules after being thrown out of a New South Wales pub despite being doubly vaccinated.
Mr Katter was in Tamworth in Northern NSW when he was ejected from the pub with video obtained by Channel Seven showing pub staff watching on as he enters a taxi outside the premises.
Mr Katter said Australia's governments were taking away the right to freely assemble at the local pub, after he was kicked out of a Tamworth Hotel for failing to prove he was fully vaccinated on the weekend.

"I've had both of my COVID vaccinations, but I don't have a smart phone so I can't check-in using the state government app, but I did give them options to verify," Mr Katter said.
"Full praise to the local police officer carrying out their duties in a very respectful manner."
He said was in Tamworth meeting with local leaders to discuss issues that affect inland Australia and polices that will reverse its population decline.
