When the federal Coalition criticised Anthony Albanese for having a busy overseas travel schedule, he asked them to name one of his travels to the Quad and Nato summits, Indonesia, Paris, and Ukraine that he should have skipped.
The prime minister, who had just returned from a week in Europe, defended his hasty diplomatic tour of six nations since assuming office in May when David Littleproud, the leader of the Nationals, and Angus Taylor, the shadow treasury, questioned his itinerary.
Albanese commented, They may make their case if they want to say I’m not working hard.

I have a talented government with ministers who carry out their duties.
This is not a one-person performance.
After Scott Morrison chose to hold the election just before the Quad leaders’ summit, the new prime minister took a plane to Japan for the meeting just two days after winning the election in May.
Additionally, Albanese declared his attendance at the upcoming Pacific Islands Forum in Fiji.
Recent days have seen a rise in the popularity of the hashtags #WheresAlbo and #AirbusAlbo on Twitter due to criticism from the Coalition regarding Albanese’s absence during the New South Wales floods.
