Josh Frydenberg - who lived with @ScottMorrisonMP at Lodge during pandemic… didn’t know he appointed himself to his portfolio either 👀 twitter.com/samanthamaiden…


This was a power trip, pure and simple. And a ticket to a political farce. Comment:

Anthony Albanese, 11.10am: "Scott Morrison was appointed to five additional portfolios" - home affairs, treasury, health, finance, resources theguardian.com/australia-news…

breaking: Governor-General David Hurley's office confirms he swore Scott Morrison into various portfolios - saying they "do not require a swearing-in ceremony", can be done by administrative instrument

Second, the Dept of Prime Minister and Cabinet should be able to release documents that show when Scott Morrison took on these duties.
