As the Gospers Mountain bushfire continues to move rapidly towards Western Sydney, Prime Minister Morrison has decided he doesn’t want his daughters exposed to the thick bushfire smoke in Cronulla.
This comes after six weeks of non-stop bushfires in both New South Wales and Queensland, resulting in the loss of six lives and close to 2000 homes – as an area the size of the United Kingdom is scorched from the earth.
According to the RFS, the current bushfire encroaching on metropolitan Sydney is bigger than Wales.
The Prime Minister’s Office has repeatedly refused to confirm his whereabouts this week, but the mystery appeared to be solved on Thursday night after his photograph with Aussie tourists in Hawaii was posted on Instagram.
“Not in my wildest dream did I ever imagine I would have the opportunity to share a few bevvies and chat about many things with the Prime Minister of Australia,” the Instagram post said.
“Contrary to belief, he’s actually a bit of a legend.”
The Prime Minister is enjoying a seven-night break in Hawaii with his wife and two daughters before a busy schedule of official overseas travel during the school holidays.
Morrison is yet to even stand next to a sign language translator, let alone a fire and rescue official, for fear that he might have to make mention to the very well documented evidence that suggests these fires are being ferociously accelerated by climate change.
However, his office says that a seven week break in Hawaii with his daughters is just what the Pentecostal fundamentalist needs.
“He’s loving the opportunity to enjoy a sunset with him family without having to worry about such dense grey bushfire smoke” said the Prime Minister office.
“It’s almost like being in Cronulla when there isn’t a few megatonnes of burnt shit going into air”
