As you know, this loon pretty much hates all politicians but I am going to have a small amnesty today to applaud our Prime Minister. On Saturday night he volunteered to help the NSWs rural fire brigade do a backburn near Bilpinwith. For those who don’t know, for the last few days NSW has been under siege from over 100 bushfires. So far over 200 homes have been lost and many more expected in the next few days. Yes, I know the cynics may say it is all a big publicity stunt but Tony Abbott has been a volunteer firefighter for over 13 years. Last week he cracked the shits when they refused to let him on the front line despite being trained as a specialist breathing apparatus operator, chainsaw operator and tanker driver.. He has been under a barrage of criticism for continuing to volunteer while being Prime Minister of Australia. I say phooey. Good on him. I don’t think too many people would get up in the middle of the night to do this.
