And no one bothered to tell Gladys? Now, is it because the NSW Premier is a woman or because Scott Morrison himself didn’t know?
Either way, very embarrassing for Australia and a total reflection of the way the Chinese dominate the place.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has cautioned against world leaders becoming "nothing more than the sum of our deals" in what is likely to be read as a jab at Donald Trump's transactional approach to global affairs.
Mr Morrison used a speech to the Australia-UK Chamber of Commerce in London on Tuesday to criticise the damaging trade war between the United States and China, which he said risked slashing the living standards of billions of people worldwide.
Rather, the world needed to back reform of global trading rules - an approach that Australia has championed - in particular to keep up with the fast-changing role of technology in the world economy.
"We must do everything we can to avoid ... a zero-sum mindset developing, especially when it comes to trade and commerce," he said.

Aug. 5 (UPI) -- An Australian politician wants to terminate a 99-year Chinese lease on Darwin Port and nationalize the asset, according to multiple reports.
Nick Champion, deputy chairman of Australia's Federal Parliament's Foreign Affairs, said Canberra should buy Darwin Port back, Australia's ABC News reported.
"I think there was not enough consideration of the national interest in that particular privatization of this port," Champion said, according to the report.
"It's a very important port because we have significant defense facilities in the Northern Territory and that's the part of the world I guess we have to pay a great deal of attention to."

I sincerely hope the Chinese sort out their baby formula situation. Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians etc will always have access.
But it’s sad that the Chinese haven’t been able to restore faith in their supply chain.
They could always forcibly wean the excitable Chinese mothers off these foreign baby formulas and make them buy a native product simply by restricting supply. But it seems the Chinese understand that parents like to make these quirky little health decisions for their children and not outsource them government officials.
How glorious is must be to have such autonomy over ones family without interference.
