Jim Wilson blasts French President’s ‘appalling diplomacy’ amid slur on PM

French President Emmanuel Macron has accused Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison of lying about the cancellation of a major submarine deal.

Tensions have increased amid the AUKUS nuclear submarine deal, which saw Australia snub an existing $90 million contract with France.

Jim Wilson called out the French President for “throwing public grenades” at Australia while there are far more pressing threats around the world to address, such as China.

“I don’t blame him for being disappointed, but fair dinkum, talk about throwing the toys out of the cot!

“To publicly call Scott Morrison a liar to a baying pack of Australian journalists is appalling diplomacy.”
