IN­TER­EST­ING to see the two North-East coun­cils are wor­ried about the bush­fire sea­son due to the lack of fuel re­duc­tion burn­ing and track, road and fire­break main­te­nance be­ing un­der­taken in their for­est ar­eas taken over by Parks and Wildlife. Would not be sur­prised if other coun­cils that once had cov­er­age and pro­tec­tion from the tim­ber in­dus­try are hav­ing the same wor­ries about wild­fire this sea­son.

Good one, Bill

SAR­CAS­TIC Bill. I think it was Winston Churchill who said “Sar­casm is the wit of a fool”. Vir­tu­ally every time Shorten open his mouth the sar­casm flows from it faster than the wa­ter goes over Ni­a­gara Falls. Enough said.

You’ll have to do bet­ter

FED­ERAL po­lice — if that’s the best Bill Shorten can of­fer Tasmanians if he and La­bor are elected at the next elec­tion, heaven help Tas­ma­nia. The worst thing about his prom­ise is that it been head­lines on the ra­dio news all day.
