    Daniel Andrews has called Scott Morrison a ‘weak leader’ and accused him of ‘double-speaking to extremists’ as he unleashed on the prime minister in a furious interview.

    Mr Morrison on Thursday said it was time for state governments to ‘step back’ and give Australians their lives back as the country emerges from the Covid pandemic.

    The Victorian premier though claimed the comments were a form of thinly-veiled support for the ‘rabid’ far-right protesters who have rallied against his controversial new pandemic laws this week.

    ‘I don’t want anyone, whether it’s people who are weak leaders or extremists to take away from what Victorians have built and sacrificed,’ he told the Today show.
