Agriculture Minister David Littleproud has called out state premiers who are “going off on their own direction” despite “screaming for national leadership” and signing up to Scott Morrison’s national plan to reopen the country.
Mr Littleproud told Sky News Australia the Queensland premier has to tell Australians why she won’t open her border at the 80 per cent double vaccination rate despite signing up to the plan.
“The question has to be why are you changing your mind?” he said.
“And that’s all we are asking that certainty and hope.”
Mr Littleproud also praised Prime Minister Scott Morrison for continuing to “bring the premiers together” through the National Cabinet.
“They (state premiers) keep on screaming for national leadership, he keeps on giving it and then they turn around and he’s got no one with him,” he said.
“This is where federation is being tested and our premiers now need to stand up.”
