  1. I have to say that I have changed my opinion on Australian people from the way that people have reacted to the disaster in Victoria. I now see that people in this country are very strong and supportive of each other apart from the dick heads that are looting and making false charity claims to gain from it. I still do not think I could live here much longer as I am not happy here but it is good to know that the majority of Australians are good people.
  2. I just felt I had to share this with you all - makes me feel extremely humble and overwhelmed.. amazing! From the ABC website this afternoon: The flood-affected residents of Ingham in north Queensland are putting their own problems aside the help the victims of the Victorian bushfires. The clean-up and recovery in Ingham began this morning after one of the worst floods in the region's history. About 200 residents lined up at the community recovery centre this morning to receive financial assistance from the Queensland Government to replace items lost in the floods. Many of them have lost everything but say their plight is insignificant compared to the loss of life and damage caused by the Victorian bushfires. Communities Department spokesman Peter McCarthy says many of them are giving their grants to help bushfire victims. "A lot of people are coming through and while they've suffered loss themselves and are understandably upset at their loss and the damage that their property might have suffered, a lot of them have made comments to our staff that 'we're not as bad off as the poor people in Victoria', 'thank God we're not in Victoria'," he said. "Some of them have even said that they plan to give some of the money to the Victorian bushfire appeal." Mr McCarthy says one concerned man in Ingham want his recovery money directly donated to the appeal. "And he said 'I'm going to give this money straight to the Victorian fire appeal so you may as well write this cheque out to them, not to me'," Mr McCarthy said. :hug:
