January 11 – Australian New Daily reported on the 11th that Australian Prime Minister Morrison publicly announced on the same day that he would take a week off.
This time, instead of sneaking to Hawaii for a holiday like in 2019, he didn’t reveal the news until a few days later, but chose to give an advance notice. Even so, it still aroused the dissatisfaction of Australian netizens.
Unwilling to make another mistake in 2019, Morrison issued a statement on the 11th that he would take a week off and return to work on January 18.
During Morrison’s brief absence, Deputy Prime Minister McCormack will take the post of Prime Minister and receive regular briefings on health and the economy, communicating with health officials about vaccination plans.
McCormack will also coordinate the response to the outbreak, meeting with state and regional leaders, according to the statement.
Morrison also said: “On vacation, I will be in touch with Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly, who will report to me about the coronavirus epidemic.”
Not surprisingly, Morrison was scolded again on this vacation.
Some Australian netizens warned that Morrison assigned all the tasks of the response to the novel coronavirus to state and territory governments, including the isolation of immigration personnel, but these are the responsibilities of the federal government.
Morrison took a vacation.
Another netizen asked rhetorical: “Why on earth did he take a vacation? Has anyone counted that he didn’t take a break during Christmas? It always feels like Morrison has more fakes than many people.” Morrison is either on vacation or on his way to take a vacation.”
Morrison has been criticized for going on vacation during the 2019 forest fire.
At the time, he was “disappeared” days before confirming that he was in Hawaii, forced to publicly apologize and shorten his vacation.” Where did Morrison go? “Morrison stepped down” and other tags once appeared on Twitter hot search.
