This talking point is from the ABC. Honestly, how narcissistic does that heading sound? It’s as if we’re all sitting around weeping because our ‘father’ the PM has left the country.
As the PM can’t really *do* anything about the fires because the various agencies are already flat out, I could care less whether he poses for another photo-op with an old man whose dogs have died.
What I want to see is a serious plan for rolling out nukes to solve climate change AND a national debate about how we’re going to deal with these fires in the future. What equipment do we need to buy, what people do we use, how do we care for the families of volunteers who die on the line, and when fires get past a certain point do we need to bring in the defence forces?
