Scott Morrison may be doing a solid job on the virus in Australia -- with stellar, arguably career-saving help from state premiers -- but he is flailing when it comes to China.

The more one looks at the Morrison government’s full frontal attack on China, and his bizarre demands for an independent inquiry into the Chinese government's handling of the COVID-19 outbreak, the stranger it seems. 

Doubling down, Morrison is also pushing the even more ludicrous plan of giving World Health Organisation officials similar investigation powers to UN Nuclear weapons inspectors.
