The slow bicycle race that is Australian politics has had an early breakout with Scott Morrison’s Lowy Institute speech announcing his opposition to "negative globalism" and expanding the notion of a "promise of Australia" aired during the election.
The speech has raised the question as to whether this represents Morrison going in a Trumpian direction. It does of course, but only insofar as Trump is going in a general direction of the right in a very particular manner. Looking for "country X's Trump" is a category error; Trump is, in part, a product of the unique nature of the American presidency, an elected God-emperor. As Boris Johnson's fraught few weeks show, you can’t be even a bit like that in the Westminster system. One can see a certain idea of "the right" shining through Morrison’s speech, but what is happening is part of a deeper global process.
