The NSW bushfire death toll has risen to 16 — including eight since Monday — after police found the body of a man at Belowra, in the state's south, yesterday.

Key points:
  • The total number of confirmed dead in NSW this bushfire season is 16
  • At least three volunteer firefighters were killed in the past two weeks while battling blazes
  • The latest stocktake of destruction comes amid mass evacuations on the NSW South Coast

 

The body has not been formally identified, however, it is believed to be that of a 72-year-old who was missing in the area.

The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) also confirmed 449 homes had been destroyed on the South Coast since the New Year's Eve.

This takes the total number of properties destroyed this fire season to 1,365, with 501 homes damaged.

The RFS said more than 9,000 homes were saved by the efforts of firefighters across the state.

Midday-ish press conference on 4 January 2020...

 

 

Meanwhile, someone lse's arse is on fire, but won't resign:

 

David Elliot, the embattled emergency services minister who drew furious criticism for his decision to take a European holiday amid a horror fire season, has declared he will not resign.

"I came back to step up, not step down," Mr Elliott said on Saturday morning after arriving home overnight from London, where he had planned to take a long-delayed trip with his family.

David Elliott said his absence was "inexcusable" in a Facebook post shortly after his arrival. "I should have put my RFS family first and foremost given the current conditions."

they lie about everything...

still fakin’ it …

Failed marketeer & Prime Ministerial pretender, “Great Scott” Morrison, has claimed that the roll-out of defence forces in response to the bushfire crisis was “unprecedented” & was a statement about the scale of the bushfire crisis https://www.canberratimes.com.au/story/6566434/defence-faces-long-haul-with-bushfires/?cs=14264 

Not so fast ScoMo …

Those old enough to remember Cyclone Tracy & the near total destruction of Darwin over X-Mas 1974, will remember the leadership displayed by then Prime Minister Gough Whitlam, who immediately abandoned an official visit to Europe & flew directly to Darwin (not Hawaii) to take charge of the crisis.

They will also remember the scale & immediacy of the federal government’s response which dwarfed Morrison’s latest self-serving stunt https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Tracy 

Morrison & his pals can’t help themselves: they lie about everything. 

It’s the only thing that they know how to do that comes naturally.
