Firstly, he can immediately stop fudging about and underwrite the wages of volunteer firefighters, that's the bare minimum and something all his predecessors did without hesitation.This bloke is incapable of pulling the trigger, he wants somebody else to make the decision or to wait to the last moment when there is no decision left to be made. His philosophy seems clear, No decisions = No mistakes!Secondly, he can stop finger-pointing at the states and spend some money on our national fire fighting resources like the air based fire defence systems. Nobody is arguing against this, but only the Feds have the resources to actually do it!Then of course, he can stop pandering to marginal interests, quit jumping in front of cameras with a bag of groceries(FFS! ) and take some real action on issues like hazard reduction and control. Arguing against it, or that it's a local council or state responsibility, is like claiming China's carbon emissions stop at it's border!ScoMo exhibits all the worst traits of just about every ineffective manager I've ever come across, to think their parties voted blokes like ScoMo and Trump in is bizarre enough, to leave them in control borders on criminal neglect! One is taking us into a global war while the other burns the farm!
So he is now responsible for all fires in Australia according to you?He should simply override state powers.Imagine if he did that!Oh and he should also dictate China’s carbon emissions. I can see that working well, telling your biggest customer how to behave.You might want to think about the ramifications of all those little proposals
Your Andrew Bolt style fear mongering isn't a defence for ScoMo being a puddle of indifference! He's turned out to be another spud, the hard blue right should admit the mistake and move on! Their efforts are as far from the bullseye as the Greens or Labor!btw., Unlike what the blue believers think, the term "right" doesn't mean correct!
So he should just take over the states powers?And tell China how to behave.There are no limits to your knowledge
And there it is, the right wing shock jock's loop of indifference argument, like a carnival carousel with the brakes broken.Typical, disputing any idea of actually doing something with a "What could they do?" argument, followed by criticism of all and any who actually try to do something, and then claiming to know all the answers without actually offering any possible solutions! Then, shortly to come, a retrospective complaint about the costs!Paralysis by indetermination!ScoMo's bringing in the reserves after the battle is lost and the front line troups are exhausted. What a true bloody British officer he is, scrambling through the ashes and across the dead proclaiming "What hell!"But not all is wasted, he delivers us a new clear dictionary definition of "Pathetic!"pathetic/pəˈθɛtɪk/adjective1. See ScoMo
JH, old son, sorry mate but you are defending the indefensible. Today Morrison has finally admitted he should do something, (from The Age)...'while the Prime Minister has declared he has heard the clear message that firefighters and communities need more federal help.' What a fckn genius this Morrison must be. Only took two months and how many lives? How much acreage? How much animal devastation? How many homes/properties razed?One of the prerequisites for effective leadership is vision. And the ability, devoid of political or religious bias, to interpret facts, quickly, and act decisively. Morrison has none of that. As the Spotted One pointed out, Morrison has waited until being screamed at by everyone to act, surmising that he can't make a mistake now, and suddenly arrives at fire locations (for the obligitory photo opportunity) only to be met by howls of, 'top talking and do something!'. Well, a bona fide leader would have acted immediately upon the arrival this bush fire horror, listened to the experts on the ground and done 'whatever-it-took' to support communities and those combatting the flames and those providing for the displaced. And if that meant pushing the states into a co-operative action with the Federal Govt, then so be it.What matters most in all of this are the lives, the many lives, at stake which a 'real' leader would have held at priority no. 1 from the get go... not hide behind outdated protocols or ideological beliefs molded by political bias or political survival.
