'Drs no confidence in Angus Taylor'
I write to convey my full support for Dr Michelle Hamrosi's national campaign ("Shire GPs in vote of no confidence in Minister Angus Taylor" 6/11). Australia had one of the highest levels of air pollution in the world during the 2019-2020 Black Summer. This is highly concerning because inhaling bushfire smoke will allow ultrafine and fine pollution particles to penetrate the human body through the lungs; causing numerous health problems.
Several of my friends, all of whom were fit and healthy adults, developed respiratory tract infections from the bushfire smoke. Some even had to be hospitalised. My friends were lucky enough to recover fully, but others have not been so fortunate.
The good doctors of Australia are calling out on the federal government for urgent action on climate change, warning that climate change is a public health emergency. This is the wake up call for us all to each send a strong message to our politicians. Our federal government needs to step up and act on genuinely reducing our emissions. Our and our children's health depend on it.
Spare us this patronising rubbish ... unburnt underload after years of ignoring the problem, as per bush fires.
The last Anzac
I made it to the dawn parade
With some pretence of care.
A soldier to the ranks had strayed
From his hospice chair.
When slowed the shining motored spokes
That bore the old and weak,
A watcher from the borders broke
And kissed the hero's cheek.
A smile rode the digger's nod
And pride glowed on his guise
But love of comrades called to God
Was cloistered in his eyes.
Maybe while the ingrate paused
There in valour's hand
I saw that war had failed to flaw
The nobility of man.
Looks good, tastes good, does good
