After three months of out-of-control bushfires destroying homes, it seems that Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s noticeably lacklustre crisis management skills have failed the pub test – with his leadership completley losing the confidence of the nation.
Currently, It is a race against the clock to evacuate people on the NSW South Coast within an area equivalent to twice the size of the island of Bali, while the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley continue fighting the Gospers Mountain blazes that have been worsening for weeks.
None of these facts were outlined in the Prime Minister Press Conference moments ago, however, what was clear was that ‘climate change is only sorta responsible’ for these record-breaking disasters – and that the Federal Government is being careful to not provide anymore help than necessary to the state governments, for fear of providing too much help.
Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia are also suffering with hundreds of out of control fires and emergency evacuations from Mallacoota to the Adelaide Hills ahead of worse conditions expected this weekend.
Since late October, thousands of properties have been overcome by the climate change aided bushfires tearing across the nation and nearly 30 people have lost their lives either fighting or fleeing the catastrophic flames.
Through not showing his face, and in fact disappearing to Hawaii for an unannounced resort holiday during the last heatwave, Scotty From Marketing has attracted criticism since the start of the bushfire season.
The bipartisan criticism of Morrison comes despite Sky News and the Murdoch newspapers continued praise our selfless Prime Minister for his heroics during the unprecedented, three-month-long national disaster.
However, as the death toll continues to rise, and his Minister for Energy and Resources now under AFP investigation for forging documents – the going has once again gotten too tough for the Prime Minister.
This comes after Scotty From Marketing was spotted checking out the Vanuatu holiday packages at the Cronulla Flight Centre, where he reportedly told staff he just wants to go some place where he can ‘really switch off’.
“Been a big year” Scotty was heard telling staff at the Cronulla travel agency
“I know its only two days in, but I need a break. I’m pooped haha”
“Plus I gotta check out all these islands before they all go under. Any specials If I book two villas? I might bring the Houstons”
