Annastacia Palaszczuk has told the Morrison government to stop ‘intimidating’ her over her state’s tough borders.
She also claimed any state which was awarded the AFL grand final would have made the same decision to allow hundreds of staff, players and WAGs to enter.
The Queensland premier has come under fire from federal treasurer Josh Frydenberg for keeping the border closed to parts of New South Wales and the ACT that have no community transmission of coronavirus.

She said he found the criticism ‘intimidating’ and that it upsets her family.
But Ms Palaszczuk said she would not open her borders anytime soon.
‘I think it’s a bit disingenuous for this heightened criticism that is coming from a whole lot of levels when our fundamental concern is to look after Queenslanders and to make sure that they are safe during this time,’ she said.
‘I do not want to see what has happened in our aged care sector in NSW and in Victoria happen here in Queensland. That would be a nightmare.’
