Play • 18 min

Ben Davison wraps up the changes to COVID protections around the country as NSW schools are set to reopen, Victoria announces end of lockdown and Hobart seems set to survive a scare unscathed.

What's Josh Frydenberg's problem.  The Morrison government Treasurer keeps attacking Victoria, that state he's from, on everything to do with COVID.  Why?  Ben Looks at how Frydenberg's failures on Jobkeeper, Jobmaker, Wages and secure jobs might be driving him to create a distraction.

And Morrison has finally decided to go to CoP26 in Glasgow in November after pressure from the opposition, Prince Charles, The Queen (who was attacked in the Herald Sun over it, so much for "mission zero") and comedian Dan Ilic who's billboard campaign has gone from Kooyong and Armadale to Glasgow and Times Square.  WIth emissions targets somewhere around half of the rest of the developed world and the Nationals still demanding an unknown price for policy to get to net zero what will Morrison say when he gets to Glasgow?  Maybe the next two sitting weeks will shed some light.
