‘TONY Abbott has joined a NSW bushfire strike team helping to try to contain a fire that has threatened homes on the NSW south coast.
The Opposition Leader has delayed his annual holiday and will for the next three days join the Sydney-based Davidson Rural Fire Brigade on bushfire watch near Nowra.
His crew will help dozens of other teams back-burning and hazard reduction burning during today’s milder conditions, and will stay until Friday.
“Look, I’m just one of 65 in this crew and part of thousands across the country,” Mr Abbott said.
Mr Abbott has been a volunteer with his local brigade since 2000, served as its deputy captain before becoming opposition leader in 2009 and has previously been directly involved with fighting fires…’ source
No? Then perhaps they’ll join him when he does his unpaid and un-publicised work in remote Aboriginal communities? Wabbit is no fan of politicians of any stripe, but this man is worth a hundred Gillards and Roxons.
Leftists/”progressives”/socialists are not welcome here. Pay for your own soapbox.
