Probably not. If you know anything about koalas then you know there are lots more of them I’m areas that didn’t get burned. But that would involve research and fact checking. lazyABC theirABC badjournalism fakenews

Yes, I've heard it all before.

There go our koalas then

R.I.P. then. Thoughts and prayers little bears.

Lol. Well that writes AustralianLabor off then.

Because free-thinking adults could never bring about positive change in the world without government right? I would argue, 99% of the problems afflicting society and the country as a whole, is a DIRECT result of government and it's corporate handler's greed and mismanagement.

Culling Koalas to prevent their extinction... 'Bold move Cotton!'

Ask LendleaseGroup about the healthy koala colony habitat they are trying to destroy and develop in and around Appin NSW. Truly shameful that our government would even consider allowing it. Pure greed from both parties.

Morrison wants power to declare national emergencies in disastersPrime Minister Scott Morrison says Australians expect the federal government to take the lead in natural disasters and he wants the power to step in to help. Why? We have had successive PMs who have dealt with natural disasters without having to resort to this sort of virtue signalling. He’s just looking for another talking point t to stop the media holding him accountable for his terrible leadership skills. Yikes, sounds a bit totalitarian and fascist to me Because a phone call to the state premiers is sooo hard?
