Hi all

The reports on the bushfires have been great, and I appreciate the people 
putting them on.  The poll in the australian is a worry to me.  As an ex Public 
Servant, I know that politicians response is often that they HAVE to do 
something or the opposition will be make huge mileage out of it (and the people 
who win elections for them are the small number of swinging voters).

I wouldn't personally respond the Australian, but I would be gearing up with 
everything possible to counter act any backlash.  Local newspapers and letters 
to the Australian may be more effective.

I hope that sanity prevails - but I took early retirement, because of my level 
of disillusion!
