Yeah, my uncle almost died yesterday. Fire went right up to the property line of his house in the bush. Idiot refused to evacuate. His daughter basically rescued him by driving back up there and alerting the local fire department that he (and some other idiot) hadn’t evacuated as they should have. He’s okay now. Fire trucks came just in time and were able to halt it.
Scott Morrison has to be the most unpopular world leader in the world right now. And rightly so. Over half a billion animals dead, scores of people, thousands of houses, and the burned area of Australia is larger than Ireland.
