The Morrison Government doesn't like scrutiny.

They think they shouldn't be held to account- but we won't let them get away with it.

Fantastic. Well done. Great job, Angus ๐Ÿ˜ก

This government are great at creative story telling, such as the fictional work they have written for their ‘climate change’ narrative; but when it comes to the science of the real facts and figures, they are incompetent in identifying flawed science and wrong figures. Their blind faith in the narrative whipped up by the fossil fuel industry is about to dump us all into hot water...

Who on earth can believe a city council can spend $15,000,000, on travel? How could you possibly do that. Says more about Angus than the Council!

Time and again, dodgy behaviour - he obviously has the wood on Sloganman ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

It is a breach of standards which this government is wilfully ignoring.

They don’t want to be scrutinised & held accountable.

Good luck with that

Yes and there is even more to than that.

Thanks RM, were depending on it!

What’s new? They believe that if they don’t want to answer questions, they shouldn’t have to! That is NOT how Parliament works. It is up to the PM to step up and take responsibility....... but he won’t, because he doesn’t possess the intellectual capacity to properly govern... plain as!!

Send in Robo debt

This government want to make everyone else accountable and have integrity, except themselves.

Taylor is a complete dill and if Morrison had any sort of backbone he would sack him

Tony Wise


Taylor needs to be charged


John Brincat Ellen Brown

Guess what? He is representing the country at the Climate Change Conference.

The problem we have in government is they have all lost sight of commonsense the figures bandied around should have immediately have been seen as wrong or highly unlikely by using commonsense and a bit of detective work this issue could have been avoided.

Dont vote for these corrup3 dogs again

Will the NSW police do a proper search or are they now compromised by this PM?

It’s what this Morrison Govt does ,, it is a rogue Govt

Morrison is a bully. He just walks over female journalists.

This is exactly what happens when ill informed people who refuse, or could not be bothered to do a bit of research vote in dumb, arrogant gits.

NSW RFS crew getting ready for another busy day.

Thank you to all the firefighters, emergency services personnel, volunteers and community organisations that are doing an outstanding job protecting and supporting all of us in the face of bushfire.

thank you for doing a great job

Bless them all. They must be exhausted

Could the volunteer fire fighters be given oxygen masks from the air force. Smoke must be horrible for respiratory system.

So if parliament is breaking up for a holiday they could all volunteer on the fire front or on farmers property to earn their money like everyone else

Stay safe everyone. Thank you fur all you are doing ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Thank you all you do an amazing Job God Blessyou

Action speaks larger than words! Do something state emergency ๐Ÿšจ.

C'mon Richard, the Labor Party has gotta push the Libs into declaring a National State of Emergency!!! Actually do something other than giving thanks to the volunteers! It really doesn't help them in any practical sense!!

Thank you


What would we do without them !

And still the LNP do sfa! There have been volunteers lose their jobs, in helping & protecting the nation, whilst our moron of a drop kick PM still has the ADF on standby! Volunteers from here & oversees have come on board to help to assist in quelling these disastrous fires, & still Canberra can’t see past the end of their noses, to do something

scomo could double the assistance ,to smash these fires ,but too busy visiting other business people

Since parliament is out for the next few months,why don't you volunteer your services, or your wage, since you'll be doing nothing to deserve it, Mr Marles

Why must we have unpaid firefighters? Thank God for them but should we also have volunteer Police Officers and Volunteer Doctors in an emergency? I'd prefer Scott Morrison and his Ministers forfeit their pay and get out there and fight fires, that seems fair.

ScoMo is currently sending thoughts, prayers and some speaking in tongues for good measure!

They do a Wonderful Job but we shouldn't have to rely on Volunteers to do the job we pay the GOVERNMENT to do by way of our TAXES!!!

I Want Someone To Tell Me Why The Army Haven’t Been Brought In To Help??? These Firefighters Have Been Fighting These Fires For Weeks.And They Aren’t Going To Get A Break Anytime Soon๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

Where is the number 1 MFB volunteer? is he still on the roster or he quit because he’s no longer in politics (hypocrite) ?

Pity they could not spot the fire bug brigade at work!

Yes Donna Lorrell they have all been strangely out of sight....we have only seen Baaaarnaby for long enough to sling mud at the two people who lost their lives in GlenInnes
