Josh Frydenliar isn’t going, at the AFR:
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has pulled out of this weekend’s G20 summit in Argentina, opting to remain in Canberra amid parliamentary chaos for the Coalition.
Mr Frydenberg had been due to travel to the annual leaders meeting in Buenos Aires with Prime Minister Scott Morrison after Parliament rises on Thursday, but the defection of Victorian Liberal Julia Banks to the crossbench on Tuesday has rocked the government.
And nobody even wants to meet Scummo, the placeholder, at The Australian:
The Prime Minister was left off the president’s final list of bilateral meetings for the summit with national security adviser John Bolton saying the president’s schedule was already “full to overflowing.’
The decision means that Mr Morrison is unlikely to meet with Mr Trump before the next federal election, which polls suggest the Coalition will lose.
This despite India and Japan attending a meeting together for the three corners of the Quad. No meeting with China, either.
Why would you want to meet somebody so fleeting?
