Australia’s national cabinet: an exercise in unity minus real power

Michael McLaren

Last year, Scott Morrison announced that the government had “resolved … to form a national cabinet to deal with the national response to the coronavirus”.

 

Gerard Henderson, Author, Columnist, Political Commentator & Executive Director of the Sydney Institute, joins Michael to discuss his latest opinion piece where he writes the ‘real story about Australia’s national cabinet is that no such constitutional entity exists.’

 

‘Australia does not have a national cabinet today and it never has had a national government in the past.’
