Professor AJ Brown of Griffith University says a war of words between state leaders over restrictions on interstate travel may undermine the national cabinet’s spirit of co-operation during the coronavirus pandemic. The professor of public policy and law says it is "surprising and a little disappointing" that New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian is calling for state borders to be reopened for economic reasons. NSW has criticised Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk for signalling that her state’s borders may remain closed until September.
