Brisbane 2032: Queensland Premier plays down Olympics spat with Morrison government - 10Oct21 - The West Australian

“On Sunday, Ms Palaszczuk was clearly frustrated with the federal member (Ted O’Brien MP) as the Premier delivered a slap down.”

“I will work very cooperatively with the federal government,” she said, insisting the council, state and commonwealth was “working so well together”.

“It’s a bit odd for a backbencher to be commenting on something that has been dealt with at the ministerial level.”
