There goes the Australian government. The Liberal, that is conservative, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been ejected from office. Labor’s Anthony Albanese is the winner of the country’s general election.
In foreign policy terms will it be disruptive? He won’t change much initially, seems to be the view of observers. Those who like the West will hope the intelligence briefings explaining what’s going on in the world, which he’ll get on arriving in office, will scare the life out of a leader who is untested on foreign policy, during a war in Europe and with China a threat. Australia is in the Five Eyes intelligence group and under Morrison signed the AUKUS deal with the US and the UK. Seeking to reverse it, President Macron will be all over new man Albanese like a rash.
