Sexual orientation is not a religious belief or faith. There is no LGBTQI intuitions that have beliefs or faith
That’s not my point. What I’m saying is religious bosses want to fire gay employees. If gay bosses wanted to fire Christian employees there would be outrage form the right, but they support the reverse happening.
Yes I do understand what you are saying, personally I not fussed as long as the person is qualified, but those religious body do have faith and belief and having someone whom holds the same beliefs within its teachings and institutions
Its exactly the same thing, it called freedom of choice
Again, goes back to my first argument. Religious people have the “freedom of choice” to fire gay people, what can’t I have the “freedom” to fire people who are religious?
Again it’s the religious institutions that want people within that hold the same beliefs that they do. I understand both sides of the arguments, it’s the same that business or corporation can apply for selective gender discrimination, Fernwood fitness for example is for women only
The problem here is you look in hindsight, the PM holiday would have been booked months in advance, we have bushfires in Australia all the time at the time of departure the fires were not that significant from fires in years gone by.
A lot of fallacies. First off as multiple fire chiefs warned 2019/20 was going to be a bad season and said the federal government needs to buy water bombers,
It’s not a federal responsibility to buy water bombing tankers. It’s a state responsibility
The 19/20 season had started in WINTER!, and by November firefighters were finding traditional control methods were not effective, even before summer hit. Secondly the fires before Christmas were bad enough, in November, he should have been aware of this.
Again that is up to the states to manage its preventive bushfire programs.
It didn’t stop the NSWG from finding the funds to buy a 737 water bomber did it, funny that heyhttps://www.google.com.au/amp/s/austral ... hting/amp/https://fireaviation.com/2021/07/21/uni ... australia/
Thirdly he didn’t tell anyone he was leaving, no official statement, he said he told Albanese but Albanese later said that was a lie. Lastly when he was spotted in Hawaii and came back “as fast as he could” because of “bad optics” it was revealed he had spent a day or two extra there, and there were multiple flights he could have returned on that he skipped. Don’t tell me the Prime Minister can’t get back on the first available flight.
It would be common knowledge inside government that the PM would be going on holidays, his travel itinerary would not be made public for security reasons,
Again if he were to be there an extra couple of days, it is dependant on when he could get a flight I’m not going say he could or could not have got, if he traveled by RAAF VIP flight that is different. If the PM arrived in Australia two days prior could he have done anymore than what was being done?
Irrespective if Albo knew or there are systems in place that allows for contingency such as this. This was solely about optics in the media
But he wasn’t was he, you are looking for a political scapegoat to suit your agenda in the current political arena.
One is a state government junior minister, the other is the national Prime Minister. Obviously one is more well known and has more power.
Agree one is well know, what you fail to realise is that was his job and portfolio being NSW Emergency Services Minister, and no the PM does not have more power in this, his role is to provide federal resources across government agencies to cut red tap in a time of state/ national emergency and to provide ADF help where they can, the ADF do have a limited amount of dual use equipment the ADF is not equipped to fight bushfires
agree it was not a good look, but a couple of weeks ago he was condemned for not having the media around for a visit to flood in Brisbane, you can’t have it both ways
Also, the video in question illustrates that the community did raise its concerns about the lack of equipment for that area
It wasn’t just a good look, it was downright assault (he touched the firefighters hand after specifically being told not to)
I’m not condoning what he did, but respect works both ways, irrespective if you think it’s just for media attention he has taken the time to see for himself the situation on the ground.
When visiting the flood victims he banned media lest the locals gave him a hard time and only allowed Liberal PR approved footage to be broadcast. Pretty dictatorial stuff.
What do you want?
You bag him for if the media is there for a photo op, and now you bag him for not doing.
It’s the old saying you can’t please all the people all the time
The federal government didn’t keep up with its NAFC commitments like the states did.
Care to provide information on that claim. NAFC do not actually own any aircraft they contract it out
It’s also interesting to note that it was the Coalition that set up NAFC
The ALP had promised a fleet of water bombers at the 2019 election; and has proposed a national civilian disaster agency. The federal government can provide a lot of assistance in national emergencies, as long as the right party is in charge.
Easy to talk the talk, but on past experience the ALP when in power do not walk the walk.
It’s also noted in the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements
“As we note many times throughout our report, state and territory governments have primary responsibility – and accountability – for emergency management. We do not propose this should change.”
“8.32 We heard that it would not be ‘practical, sensible or cost-effective’ for any one state or territory to maintain all the necessary specialised aerial assets to address all its possible aerial firefighting needs. NAFC is responsible for ‘providing a cooperative national arrangement for the provision of aerial firefighting resources for combating bushfires’. NAFC performs this function by leasing a fleet of specialised aerial firefighting aircraft on behalf of the states’ and territories’ emergency services.”https://naturaldisaster.royalcommission ... ble%5D.pdf
Bit a long bow to suggest that we could have had it earlier when it was first clear for use by the UK in December2020 and then it was only to be used on a emergency basis
There was an offer by Pfizer to 90% double Vax Australia by July 2021. It’s called redundancy and having multiplied options.
Can’t find anything to back up your claim, can you provide a link but that also would not have been achieved anyway as I said before the EU suspended deliveries to Australia of vaccine
For international arrivals, but not domestic quarantine, once the government closed the borders it became a matter for state health authorities, Also the states struck a deal with the federal government to run quarantine hotels because they required federal government support for the state economies
The government shirked its constitutional responsibility and the states were forced to take up the slack. They did this because they they knew they could blame leaky quarantine hotel breakouts on state governments (well ALP ones at least). But there have been federally run quarantine centres (Howard Springs) and the Liberals should have built more.
You can’t just deflect and deny away the obvious failings of the Coalition government anymore. They’ve failed Australia over the last 9 years (especially the last 3) and have no vision or policy agenda for the future. Morrison is an ad guru with no substance.
Nope, the states were not forced to do anything. The states wanted its quid pro would as they knew they were going to need massive financial assistance to keep its own economy up, the federal government as easily ran the hotels. Lots of cruise ships could have been hired as floating quarantine accomodation
