If these ferals weren’t forgotten before, they should be now

‘Go back to Kirribilli’: Morrison heckled by angry residents in Cobargo.

Some local residents were unhappy to see the PM on his visit.

“So many people here have lost their homes,” one woman said to Mr Morrison on Thursday as she refused to shake his hand before he grabbed it.

“We need more help,” she told the Prime Minister as he walked away.

The woman attempted to follow Mr Morrison, but was stopped by Bega Valley councillor, Tony Allen.

“You’re an idiot! Who votes Liberal around here? Nobody,” a man yelled.

“You’re not welcome you [expletive],” someone yelled as the Mr Morrison walked back to his car.

“Go back to Kirribilli. We might burn that down! I don’t see Kirribilli burning after the fireworks!” another man shouted.

As Mr Morrison hopped into his car, a woman turned to the camera to say that the town had been “forgotten”.

“This is not fair, we are totally forgotten about down here – every single time this area has a flood or fire, we get nothing,” she said.

“If we were Sydney, if we were North Coast, we would be flooded with donations and emergency relief.”

In a separate incident, Mr Morrison tried to shake a firefighter’s hand but was rejected.

“I don’t really want to shake your hand mate,” the firefighter told the PM.

 
If the fireman can’t do his job without behaving like an adolescent for the cameras, maybe he belongs in the kitchen helping the ladies make sandwiches. What we’re seeing during this fire crisis is two Australias: the old Australia whose firemen and voluntary combatants go about their difficult work very willingly and proudly – blaming nobody and not looking for attention. The new Australia, however, is a country of emotional whiners, cargo-cultists, hysterical witch-hunters and smirking media slanderers. The last-named group – journalistic fire-bugs – has deliberately propagated incendiary loathing of Scott Morrison.

Why? Because their phony narrative of Unprecedented Catastrophe must have the (conservative) villain they think it deserves. Meanwhile, the Labor and Greens politicians whose fetish for unkempt scrub has now caused the destruction of hundreds of properties – and killed people – watch on. Their first thought is always the same: “How can we use this to promote ‘climate change’ and wedge the LNP in urban electorates?”

    And then there’s Andrew Constance, New South Wales Minister for Transport quoted in the press as saying Morrison “the welcome he probably deserved” – this from a supposed Liberal!

    This behaviour does not fill me with the urge to donate.

    He’s right though, Morrison is an idiot … and I can understand why people get shitty about any politician turning up for a quick photo-op then pissing off without trace. Morrison should have stayed on holidays, and sent a short message that it has never been the job of the Commonwealth to handle land management issues.

    By the way, not all bogans are as thick and nasty as this lot. Many bogans have a modicum of common sense.

  7. I’ve written my views on all of this climate crap and the bushfires, for what it’s worth. I live in the midst of all of this, know the High Country and think I have a better feel for it all than the inner-city Greens and the local Green filth.

  8. Andre Lewis

    The angry fellow that got himself on the news for this story has, like others, chosen to live in an isolated small community with limited access and services, both the responsibility of the state government. As these almost off the grid areas have limited employment opportunities he naturally decided to have 6 children that he whines he is now not sure how he can feed, perhaps others taxpayers need to tip more into his kitty? He does, of course, have the opportunity to choose a local council but this one seems to be like many others that have neglected their bush safety and fire mitigation role but he is not putting his hand up to volunteer for fire duties it appears. So when the inevitable fire calamity happens and getting help on site is difficult his first thought is to pile on the PM. Seriously!

  9. Michael

    Across Australia, those blaming ScoMo would be better directing their anger at those who voted in local government elections for Greens candidates. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are not one and the same.

    Disgraceful.

    The locals may not vote for or even like whoever is PM, but they should at least treat his office with the respect, especially under such circumstances.

    Even Labor PMs.

    When I was younger (thirty and more years ago) Australians used to talk about “whinging Poms.”

    Australians are now world champion whingers, despite having the best of everything.

    As I have said before, the PM might as well have stayed on vacation in Hawaii; he can’t win either way, whatever he does.

  14. Well written, currencylad. All I hear on their ABC is how our PM was treated. They are milking it for all it’s worth and giving airtime to “I’m not going to politicise the situation, but…” Albanese, who is kicking Morrison as hard as he can.

    Sco mo is proclaiming climate change is real and so he gets all he deserves.

    This is exactly what someone with an ounce of integrity and half a brain should expect trying to please and play with the loony left.

    It is truly amazing how stupid these lefties are. I heard Phil Coorey, the Political Editor for the AFR and frequent Insiders guest, say on ABC TV yesterday afternoon that he was heading to his house in Bega. He said he would be all right and if things turned bad he would just go to the beach. A few stories later the ABC showed the evacuation centres in Bega with probably a hundred cars parked where people had been sleeping overnight.

    Coorey has just tweeted asking what the traffic is like at Brown Mountain ( the road to the west of Bega heading to Cooma). I assume his plan to just go to the beach didn’t seem too smart and now he is trying to evacuate. He must be a complete moron, but will no doubt be on TV soon telling everyone stupid enough to listen to him, how the Liberals got everything wrong and its all climate change’s fault.

  20. Fin

    Ferals, rather than bogans. Di Natale ferals. And the self-regarding creep who has dressed himself as a fireman (sic) to attempt to humiliate the PM is no doubt the toast of the “Australians [who] are now world champion whingers, despite having the best of everything” (Lee).

    Lee makes a valid point; the can do attitude of British workers outside the major cities leaves the likes of the aforementioned creep in the dust/mud. There are still plenty of traditional Australians who get things quietly done despite the loud yapping calls for them to be paraded, medalled and even hailed as war veterans. But the feral creeps hear these calls and decide they’re going to be a piece of that action.

  21. a happy little debunker

    There is evil being promulgated via the National Emergency Broadcaster and the ever so shrill, shill – the Guardian.
    Truths about bushfire intensity are being invented – whilst facts are being dismissed.

    These outright attacks on the Prime Minister by ‘no-nuthings’ and ‘never-dos’ are the latest symptom of this evil.

    Lots of bogans do work for a living, despite what many inner-city types think.

    Today’s Herald sun:
    “VIC News
    ‘No more’: Lucknow bushfire relief centre inundated with generous donations
    A relief centre in East Gippsland is groaning with donations and begging bushfire victims to pick up what they need, after being inundated by generous Victorians.”

    Good points made re bogans.

    Another thought – those who rule over us are always on the lookout for another excuse to justify the artificial shortage of housing land they use to prop up property prices and cement their role as corrupt gatekeepers, with all that entails. Having succeeded in indoctrinating the general public that preserving scrubland justifies overriding ownership rights, watch as they now ramp up the rhetoric around the risk of bushfire, as if the bush is immutable, never to be changed (except by the political class or nature).

    The obvious solution to reducing the risk of bushfire to property – the one they studiously, relentlessly and stubbornly refuse to accept – is to restore property rights to owners, allowing them to clear as much as they judge necessary for their own safety. That means getting rid of policies such as “10/50 rules”, “Tree preservation orders”, “Guidelines for tree management on private land”, etc, etc, and replacing them with nothing but respect for the right of an owner, not a non-owner such as the council or government bureaucrat, to determine what they do with what they own.

  26. rugbyskier

    I looked at the election results in Cobargo. The 2PP vote was 60.25% to ALP, 39.5% to Liberal in comparison to the total electorate result of 50.85% ALP to 49.15% Liberal. The Greens got 14% of the primary vote. The reaction was unsurprising.

  27. That, dear Cats, was not Bogans, that is footage of Housos.
    A brilliant example of Houso conduct in fact.

  28. Grumbles

    What worries me is the amount of people whose comfort and peace of mind is dependant on where Scott Morrison is, and that the solution to their problems is the government. You’re never going to be prepared for anything, let alone a bush fire, if your first question is, where is Scott Morrison and why isn’t he helping me.

  29. Tom

    Bogans are generally very good people.

    Fact check: true.

    The NSW south coast has been full of ex-city ferals and future Filth voters since the 1970s. I remember driving around the region in the mid ’70s and it was full of them.

    Our ABC didn’t waste any time.
    The tipping point is playing out right now’ says renowned climate scientist Michael Mann | ABC News
    It’s all Scott Morrison’s fault. He dropped a monkey wrench into the important climate change talks in Spain and triggered a tipping point. The Australian wildfires are proof of Runaway Global Warming acting locally.

  31. areff

    You want him to break the law, CL? Such is the government “management” of bushfires, and every aspect of bushfires, that only licensed and approved caterers are allowed to make the firefighters’ sandwiches and fill their tea cups.

    I’m not joking. In Victoria (don’t know about NSW) that’s the law.

  32. Rob MW

    A mate of mine turned up with two D9’s on the other side of Bathurst to cut some breaks the other day and was told by the Sydney controllers that under no circunstance were any trees to be knocked over. He loaded up the dozers and went home.

    Morrison can only help with the army and the same heavy equipment so I guess the NSW fire dick’s don’t want that sort of help either.

    Meanwhile your ABC continued the pile-on this morning. Especially the usual leftist doltards interviewing each other and tut-tutting over Scomo’s failure by doing this and not doing that. The prize surely goes to Frank Elly who recommended that Scomo helicopter into to Mallacoota, hug some folks languishing on the beach and then helicopter out again. FFS! That would end well wouldn’t it!

    People need to get into the habit of collecting written documentation of each and every incident including names and jib titles. It’s tedious but the only way to deal with bureaucracy is to make them own it. Problem is we get people like Neil coming here and claiming that Green policies simply don’t exist.

    It’s shit but paperwork is their weapon of choice and without having your own for defensive purposes you are way naked out there.

  36. twostix

    These are tree change ferals.

    No this is not true.

    The roughest loud mouthed abusers you’re seeing are going to be the children / grand children of the old labouring primary industry families. Logging, fishing and most labouring jobs for primary industry is now largely banned on the south coast of NSW and these people (if they weren’t born there already) have steadily retreated from the coast due to property prices going up to these just-inland towns.

    They’re rough as guts and a bit dumb and ridiculously mouthy and drink too much – but they’ve been caged in too by the (urban bugmen driven) abolition of their way of life which for some of them goes back to the mid 1800’s when the first settlers and convicts turned up to create the large properties, then the gold rush. Both groups of who many of these people descended from.

  37. I’m sitting here waiting for my son to come home so that we can evacuate to Bega and listening to the ABC local station broadcast fire information. They are doing a good job but the news service coming out of the metropolitan area particularly on Radio National is milking the situation to push climate change and Albanese and the local Labor pollie Mike Kelly.

    What really got up my nose was the day before NY eve I was listening to the local ABC. I was trying to find out what was happening in Moruya where my sister-in-law lives on the Araluen Rd when the local broadcast was shunted over to Benjamin Law interviewing a couple who hated white people and claimed that the Cronulla Riots and the fact that the shooter in the NZ mosque was a white Australian was evidence of the terrible Islam phobia racist mindset of white Australians. It went on for nearly an hour but I kept listening hoping for news of the fire’s progress in Araleun.

    It was ironic that they chose to broadcast this hate speech when two young men (white Australians) had been killed fighting the fires.

  38. Tel

  40. twostix

    It was dumb of Morisson to not turn up there with a tribal chief – a local ALP somebody that he could have turned and asked pointedly “how many trucks did she say? is that reasonable? what is being done?”, etc. There’s a lot of tribalism out there. It’s us vs them – they’re literally saying it “The city or the north coast wouldn’t be treated like this!”, “we might be poor” etc ,etc.

    Dumb optics dropping a Liberal city PM into Cobargo.

    Just look at the AEC polling place website first you dummies.

  41. Zatara

    “If we were Sydney, if we were North Coast, we would be flooded with donations and emergency relief.”

    Judging from that picture there is no significant smoke in the area nor do the people seem any more disheveled or ash covered than usual.

    So when did living near, but not in, a bush fire become equivalent to winning the lottery?

    Exactly what loss have you suffered that you are demanding recompense for? Who do you think owes you that recompense and why?

    Would it have been better for ya if we just flew by in a helicopter tossing out cash?

    Well, politics of the left is all about winning at any cost

    Burn the joint down and change a government, scream the media…. What a powerful message for the nutcases. Beats just talking about change. There are firebugs just flocking to the call now.

  43. Rockdoctor

    WTF is advising Scomo? He’d be better off in Canberra then giving journos more ammo for their character assassination… As for the firefighter, if NSW minister in charge of this portfolio had a set this guy would already have been shown the door. You don’t have to like the bloke (& I don’t) but as soon as he turns up with the cameras fade away, don’t make a scene…

    I wonder if the centrlink office burnt down that is probably why they are angry. Not really just ferals being ferals. If they paid net tax then maybe there would be money in the kitty to assist, leaners.

    This is going to make me sound like an arsehole but, who moves to a bushland with limited road access, allows for trees and scrub to grow close to the house, votes for a council and state government who allows for dangerous levels of deadwood buildup, doesn’t have an evacuation plan even though this has been going on for 2/3 months and than whines that they aren’t given help they are entitled too? Elections have consequences. If you vote feral Green, lock it up Labor and limp wristed Liberal you deserve to get it good and hard. This isn’t a new problem. We know the solution. Now do it or stop whineing about the firestorms.

    These will be the same ferals that have no insurance and will scream for taxpayer funded handout because they won’t take responsibility for their own situation. That’s the nature of Australians, even the least deserving grub will get a hand when things are tough.

    And currencylad’s right about two Australia’s now. I’ve been reading the huge swathe of comments over at the Herald Sun and the shrilling is relentless by the globull warming warriors and the Dan (finally back from holidays) Andrews fan club.

    I’m not joking. In Victoria (don’t know about NSW) that’s the law.

    I was in the Snowy Mountains during the 2003 bushfires and watched agog (and broken heartedly) as tray after tray and plate after plate of sandwiches and goodies delivered to the local RFS station by the ladies of the district for the hungry firies were unceremoniously turfed into the dumpmaster as soon as the donor had driven far enough away to be out of sight. Not prepared in an approved and certified kitchen.

    It was about that time that I concluded this country had lost it’s soul.

  52. This is the scene from my township and surrounding farmlands in South Gippsland around midday today. The smoke from the East Gippsland fires started drifting in early morning and by 11:00am it was like a thick fog. Just wondering when the lunatics will start lighting fires in South Gippsland.

  53. Des Deskperson

    ‘ I assume his plan to just go to the beach didn’t seem too smart ‘

    The nearest accessible beach would be Tathra, about 20 kms from Bega along a narrow, winding road with at least one single lane bridge. For Coorey to even contemplate it as an escape route in a serious fire emergency shows a level of ignorance and/or foolhardiness that almost implies mental impairment.

    And what do you do when you get to the beach? There is no shelter, no fresh water, no power, no services. We were told by the RFS that a beach should only be contemplated as a place of refuge if it is very close by, easily accessible and there is no other option whatever.

  54. Russell

    Maybe Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” is being disrupted by so many donating stuff to people affected by bushfires. If you keep giving them so much support, they will continue to build and live in these fire-prone areas and assume they will be bailed out when the fire comes. Aren’t these people insured? Too expensive? So this is not taken into account in their decision to live in these tree-change areas?
    And not much talk about all the animals that are being wiped out by these fires. These critters are really subject to Darwin’s theory and not many of them will be donating to save others of their species.

  55. Diogenes

    This is the scene from my township and surrounding farmlands in South Gippsland around midday today.

  56. Destroyer D69

    How about a class action against the greens and others who refused to allow the recommendations from experienced foresters who repeatedly warned that this would be the unavoidable result of their policies. The insurance companies took a risk based on the information from these sources and now that should be clear to anyone that this was politically motivated they should cop the bill for the result,NOT the policyholders in the rest of Aus whose premiums will now be increased to restore the insurers balance sheets.

  57. The Vic Emergency phone app illustrates some of the stupidity of today’s age. It’s like pea soup with the smoke floating about and the app keeps sending alerts about ‘air quality’ (even when community info turned off).

    It seems that government now has to alert people to any potential hazard, actions that in years gone by were taken for granted, as we learned what to do from childhood.

  58. How about a class action against the greens and others who refused to allow the recommendations from experienced foresters

    Every Royal Commission following a devastating fire in Victoria recommended fuel reduction burning, but the state government has refused to follow those recommendations. It’s the Greens, their followers and a stupid state government that are all responsible for the devastating fires.

    The fires themselves could probably not be avoided, but the ferocity could, had proper forest management taken place. What’s happened is akin to someone placing thousands of full 20lt plastic petrol containers throughout the bush and Labor, the Greens and the environmentalists refusing to have them removed.

  59. a reader

    I feel that, for the first time I can remember, this “disaster” is bringing out the worst in Australia rather than the best. These fires are probably 40 years in the making thanks to a continual sequence of progressively more ludicrous decisions about forest management. But we know that.

    The insane mobs on the internet have totally lost it. The Grauniad, Silly Moaning Hamas, Pravda on the Yarra and the ABC in particular have whipped up this crowd and I have never seen my fellow Australians spewing such bile. The absolutely disgraceful commentary about the PM (who has no legislative responsibility) is enough to make you sick. The comments from NSW ministers were even worse. I honestly don’t think I recognise my country any more. Even sane people, that I’ve known and loved for 10 or more years, have started to post even more and more ridiculous nonsense on facebook. And they won’t listen to sense. Even if you try to say ok you may be right about climate change but we still have to manage the forests you cop abuse.

    The Australia I knew and loved seems to no longer be here.

  60. Zatara

    Every Royal Commission following a devastating fire in Victoria recommended fuel reduction burning, but the state government has refused to follow those recommendations. It’s the Greens, their followers and a stupid state government that are all responsible for the devastating fires.

    Exactly. Which is why I don’t understand why the deep pocketed and heavily lawyered up insurance companies aren’t suing the green morons who are blocking responsible fire protection measures.

    If the Council prevented my insured client from removing trees on his own property which the reasonable man would know endangered his house in case of fire (perhaps even heavily fining him for it) then I’ll be damned if I’m going to eat the cost of rebuilding his house when the fire wipes it out.

    Let enough Councils get slammed with enough of those lawsuits and lets see how long the green foolishness continues unabated.

    Or, the public can just keep paying for this moronic behavior in increased insurance rates and risk to life.

  61. Diogenes

    ICA won’t go there. Easier & less costly to gouge the public… Governments will fight tooth & nail to lessen the impact, also have a habit of changing the laws to suit themselves after… Nope we’ll cop the brunt again. Similar tenant of thought though is I wonder if NQ residents could lauch a class action lawsuit against the ICA for their profiteering.

  65. Destroyer D69

    In addition to my previous post re insurance companies, there is nothing in any policy I have taken on that makes me a respondent any agreement to indemnify my insurer against policy payout losses if they suffer a loss because liabilities exceed policy premiums, which is how they recoup losses on these scenarios. Jack up everyones premiums untill the books are in the black again. The companies will not suffer the loss of a red cent as a result of this catastrophe…Just my considered opinion…

    The only thing PM Morrison has handled badly is the holiday. Going to Hawaii even if he was tired and run down and the kids were whinging and nagging to go, it was truly the wrong time.
    Any opening for the ABC climate weirdo extremists and they try to destroy a Liberal PM. His advisors mucked up there. He wasn’t expected to put out fires, just to be in Australia, in contact with the relevant ministers and knowledgeable.

    I think he has handled everything else well and in the same way any other PM has handled “disasters” in such trying times.

  69. calli

    It’s organised. They fear he’s wavering on “da climate” and they’re giving him a taste of what’s to come if he isn’t more robust.

    Your comments regarding property rights are entirely correct.

    Scomo isn’t adapted to this sort of thing. No idea why he even tries it, maybe he gets bad advice. A Trump he certainly is not; neither is he an Obama who would have had these ferals audited and blacklisted by a laundry list of government agencies.

    I disagree. This is a bloke that works 70-80 hour week in-week out. He is entitled to a break just like everyone else. There was nothing he could do anyway except hold a press conference. It is a state responsibility.

    The issue is the left want to destroy him. Crush him like a bug beneath their shoe, because he won the unlosable election.

    It’s all part of the process. SlowMo is a slow moving target because of his inability to verbally whack the media scum squarely and brutally in the head when they deserve it.

    Unlucky for ScoMo to pull up in the middle of the local feral collective.
    “Known to police” would cover that lot.

    Exactly.

    He should be aware that the media hate him and want to take him down.

    So he should be armed with facts about who’s responsible for various things, who’s already working on it, and who is posturing (looking at you so-called meeja people, plus the UFU and Premier Andrews for politicising the CFA and diverting their energies away from the prime objective “the prevention and suppression of fire”).

    You could (and wisely should) watch that footage with the sound off and would still know exactly the sorts of things being said – it’s all in direct proportion to the number of tattoos, body-piercings, multi-coloured “I’m my own person, so up yours” hair styles, and mangy mongrel dogs on display.

    How dare you insular, entitled assholes dare insult these people who have lost everything. I live in Swan Reach and now sit in Sale not knowing whether our family is lost or not. This disaster is unprecedented. Look at the damn statistics. This has nothing to do with a handful of Greens councillors (you all just spew out the same Murdoch talking points), definitely nothing with the Green members of parliament (who have limited legislative control). NSW Liberals are cutting more trees than the Congo or Brazil, creating more tinder and desertification. Gladys cut $100 million from the National Park management, nearly $80 mil from the RFS. Morrison was slow to react, and still is not providing the recommended funding. He ignored a meeting with the fire chiefs that they asked for months ago. He still has not given immediate aid to families or to all firefighters. Stop letting him off the hook, admit to yourselves that if this was a Labor PM that you would be hounding them relentlessly, and stop being so fucking callous.

    You are a pack of hypocritical, corporate media eating scumbags. Fuck you all for calling your fellow Australians ‘ferals’ because of the way they vote, or people who have lost their homes as ‘whingers’ from behind the keyboards you barely know how to use. Go fuck yourselves.

    just ferals with their five minutes of fame, embarrassed to be Australian.

    Thanks to most posters above, I thought I was going crazy, such is the inundation of anti scomo media at present.
    Was looking forward to some real journalism with Carl and Alli on 9 and some useful reporting in this disaster.
    But no, they came back early, by the look to promote themselves with a seemingly popular rhetoric against the federal leader. Even Mr Fire Chief took time out to lambast Morrison.
    I won’t be wasting any of my time with Today.
    Now is a time for team work not politics.
    As for Albonese, keep dreaming. You clown act would go down a treat at the next Lake Cobargo kids party, and there are heaps of them to pick from

    From IhaveaGF at 3:06 pm:

    Nothing more than an angry outburst offering no detail and no specific example to substantiate your wild claims. You badly need to visit the Commonwealth Bank and ask to make a deposit to the UN Carbon Fund – they will look up the correct account number if you tell them it is your contribution to reduction of the temperature in 2081 by 1 degree.

    60 people drowned during monsoonal rains in Djakarta on New Years Eve, with more to come after they dig the bodies out of the mud.

    Stop sobbing, you’ve never had it so good precious, you just don’t know that yet.
