Former prime minister Tony Abbott has criticised the national cabinet, arguing that it is really only a co-ordinating committee. He contends that the national cabinet is contributing to the lack of a clear delineation of responsibilities between the federal and state governments during the COVID-19 pandemic. The national cabinet has met 46 times so far, and it has attracted criticism from some state premiers as well as federal Labor leader Anthony Albanese. Meanwhile, Abbott says the economic liberalisation of China under former leader Deng Xiaoping has merely strengthened the Chinese Communist Party state and resulted in a new Cold War.
