Agree - also need more ground crew training so the state can be self sufficient & integrated AOC’s for the contracted operators. Too many layers of bureaucracy & fragmented regulatory/m’ment. The game has changed & we’re not keeping up!

Yep - we’re still a little light-on a/c wise. Lots of seats but not enough attack. Early contracts in NSW sent a lot of machines north - this is how Gippsland got running hard. Needs a review rather than ‘that’s what we’ve always done’ - (more tankers just requested)

17 CFA units responding to 3 x lighting strikes in the tinder dry Cowbaw Forrest -fire building quickly. chasing dozers, radio comms shocking in area as usual - nil air support despite ok conditions- need to have air attack following storm fronts as done in Israel.

I so wanted to use that scene in the news pack I did last night on 3AW .... but found a dozen other magic moments in the process including the NATO/invasion sketch. Good writing never dies

Rather than a sitting week, how about each MP draws a regional town out of a hat and spends 3-4 days there - real engagement, 1:1 with locals without politics, the parly circus or extra costs to taxpayers. Make it a twice yearly requirement using the $10K MP travel allowance

One of the little ones. There’s a huge one called Trevor that sleeps in our driveway & refuses to move - he’s 6 ft+ has so much muscle I reckon he must go to the gym

When a bus is retired, they sell for around $2k. This bus sleeps 31 people. They park outside of homeless shelters to provide overflow so no one sleeps outside in the cold! Total cost to build was $100k. Why are there not more bus shelters especially in cold weather cities!

Stay safe, pull on ALL of the PPC even if others don’t, listen to the fire ground comms (avail via Broadcastify on your phone if you don’t have scanners) - write/record what you see & importantly what you feel. Fire grounds are scary, dangerous places - be safe

We often drive down from central vic for the movie and the outside vibe. Great piece of urbanity! (BTW: Jo Jo Rabbit on Tuesday was a brilliant portrayal of a sad piece of history)
