A no-show at Glasgow?

PM Scott Morrison’s hints that he won’t attend the United Nations COP26 climate summit in Glasgow at the end of the month are becoming more obvious. Like yesterday when he said that once his government’s emissions targets are nailed down with the Nationals, he wants to explain it to Aussies first, “not to people overseas, at overseas conferences.” With Oz on track to start reopening next month, Morrison said a lot is going on at home, and he’s not keen on another 14-day stint in quarantine. Another theory: negotiations are ongoing with the Nats, and it’s hard to commit when you don’t know the outcome. There are 120 world leaders attending the Glasgow summit in person, while countries including China and New Zealand will send delegations as their leaders stay at home.  #SquizShortcut
