Queensland burns while Minister is drying out?
by Robert J Lee
While Queensland burns, the Labor Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, Comrade Craig Crawford is nowhere to be seen. What has happened to the Minister?
The Premier, Comrade Annastacia Palaszczuk has been standing in for the Minister at media conferences issuing dire warnings for landowners to desert their properties, leaving homes to burn in the face of wildfires fuelled by Labor’s decades-long policies of no graders, dozers, firebreaks or fuel reduction burning in national parks and state-owned land.
Minister Craig Crawford’s office has refused to answer a query from Cairns News if he could confirm or deny he is undergoing alcohol rehabilitation somewhere in a facility unknown.

Minister for Fire and Emergency Services
Following the United Nations agreement Agenda 21, which was eagerly signed in 1992 by then Labor Attorney General Rod Welford, the ALP has, like good Fabians, stealthily enacted these draconian UN environmental policies ever since.
Now the pigeons have come home to roost. Fires have destroyed 17 homes and 67 have been damaged. And this tally is only for 2019. Remember the devastating wildfires north of Bundaberg last year?
These homeowners, albeit they chose to live in fire prone areas among the eucalyptus trees, should have a legitimate claim against the state government.
There has been almost no hazard reduction burning in state-owned land for decades-machinery is banned-no firebreaks and bugger the poor neighbours.
The build-up of detritus on the forest floor is up to half a metre in national parks. This happened after cattle grazing was removed and properties locked up. Not so in most forestry controlled old growth and plantation areas. The Forestry department, with what is left of the old brigade, religiously burn their areas of responsibility and stock grazing is allowed in some areas.
Chop down a tree on freehold land and the dreaded tree police will pounce and drag you off to a Queensland court, mostly filled with a Labor judiciary.
How will the stormtrooper tree police know you cut down a tree to save a house? They have been watching your every move by satellite and drones. The DNR know immediately if you have acted in self-defence against wildfire.
The numerous good officers of the overpopulated Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, at media conferences have never mentioned the lack of machinery or firebreaks and excessive forest floor fuel loads might be the predisposing cause of private property losses.
Resplendent in their UN designed black uniforms, with collar badges resembling a Gestapo SS symbol, these urbanites prattle on about ‘climate change’ or global warming starting fires and every other bit of nonsense imaginable.
It is far past the time to drain the Queensland swamp of the burgeoning bureaucracy costing an extra one billion dollars a year to tell voters bullshit.
