At a meeting held, refreshingly, at midday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison unveiled his new National Covid-19 Coordination Commission, an additional body whose job, the prime minister said, was "quite simply, to solve problems".

“Problems that require the private sector working together with the private sector, CEOs, to talk to CEOs and to be engaged with by CEOs to ensure that the private to private effort is there solving problems in the national interest.”

It’s little surprise then, that the commission’s executive is stacked almost entirely with business leaders, with a few bureaucrats tossed in for good measure.
