Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has just spoken.
If I may briefly associate the Opposition with the Government's remarks. Right now, the Prime Minister's words may not be able to be heard by people in the brunt of the noise at their cocktail party of choice on Hamilton Is, There are perhaps people there without anything to do, perhaps, people trying to ensure their Italian leather luggage doesn't get damp. Perhaps the only thing they can hear is cyclonic winds on the TV. It must be very harrowing for those going through this. We're very fortunate to have the catering and bar staff serving exotic morsels and coloured drinks to those in desperate need. I think that all Australians are thinking, hoping and praying for the best possible outcome for these poor souls.
Didn't Shorten also say the the CFEMU are arriving on the island to ensure things run smoothly and its the only opportunity those members will be welcome on the island.
Nah the unions were at a mining giant today. Had us all under lockdown.
Thoughts to those in Airlie. I've seen photos of Shute Harbour.. Might need to rename it to Shite Harbour. Sad sights to come in the next few days I fear.
