‘Deeply worrying’: Richard Marles ‘held secret meetings’ with Chinese embassy Sky News host Chris Kenny says Deputy Opposition Leader Richard Marles’ secret meetings with the Chinese embassy and officials in the past five years are “deeply worrying”. Labor have complained they should have been briefed earlier in the lead up to the announcement of the AUKUS deal with the United Kingdom and the United States. “So worried are Labor party hard heads about this, that as we saw on Friday, former Labor frontbencher Michael Danby says Marles now can’t be considered for the job of defence minister or foreign minister,” Mr Kenny said. “Dear oh dear, too soft on China, too compromised to be foreign minister or defence minister, but if Labor wins, Marles will be deputy prime minister.” https://www.skynews.com.au/opinion/...mbassy/video/dd18e429da5d22a51dcca6355f868815 Add to that it'll be Penny Wong as Foreign Minister. Good luck Australia, you're going to need it.
