Bushfires are a State responsibility. It is good that the Federal Gov is putting in to help. But it would be rude for them to walk all over the States.

I feel that the federal government are doing the best they can this is so catastrophic and hasn’t happened before.It is hard to know what to do next for them it’s about getting people to safety and getting out the fires as quickly as possible and then trying to work out what to do it is going to take a long time to build up again as so many people are effected
